Episode 88: Emily Battle – Raising Boys: Building Relationships Through Emotional Connection and Physical Activity

Emily Battle is the executive director of Let Me Run. Let Me Run is a nonprofit wellness program that inspires boys to be themselves, be active, and belong. They have a comprehensive curriculum that applies the power of running. The program encourages boys to develop their psychological, emotional, and social health in addition to their physical health. 

In this episode, we talk about the importance of this connection that they create in the community at Let Me Run. Emily is also a mom of 2 boys herself. It is a great conversation about changing the societal narrative about being a boy and a man and becoming a role model for others.
