This week we’re highlighting the third section of Tina Muir and Zoë Rom’s book, Becoming a Sustainable Runner. We’ve shared chapters about sustaining your runner’s mind and body and your running community; in this episode, we’ll look at sustaining the planet.

In the “Be an Eco-Conscious Traveler” chapter, Tina and Zoë explain how you can develop a pro-environmental lens, something that Tina and Knox Robinson discussed in this episode of the Running Realized podcast. They consider the benefits of exploring closer to home, look at air travel options for the times that you do want to venture further afield, and offer suggestions that will help you find accommodations and eat in ways that are good for you and for the planet!
To make traveling easier, we’ve created a Sustainable Packing Guide that you can download for free here.
We also have Sustainable Runner’s Guides to the New York City Marathon and the Chicago Marathon, which you can find here.
