Have you ever wondered what a podcast guest has been up to since you heard them interviewed?  We have, and so Running Reunion was born.  

This week we’re catching up with Amelia Gapin. Amelia says that she was “quote, unquote ‘famous,’ for like 10 seconds,” but she’s actually a groundbreaker. In 2016, she was on the cover of Women’s Running magazine, making her, as she says, “the first out transgender woman on the cover of a woman’s fitness magazine.”

Amelia is an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community, and encourages others to speak up, as well. She suggests following Chase Strangio and Chris Mosier on Twitter. They tweet out all the information you need to voice your support for people who, as Amelia says, “really, really need your help and support. We’re just the people who are hanging out, doing our thing, living our lives, just like you are.”

You can follow Amelia on Twitter and Instagram.
