I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth” — the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

Lauren Fleshman has been running since she was 13 years old and has gone on to win state championships, NCAA titles, and USA championships. Today, she offers advice for other runners on her blog, AskLaurenFleshman.
