For this event, Laura Lee Huttenbach will be in conversation with runner and fitness blogger Lindsay McClelland. Lindsay is a digital marketing entrepreneur, yoga teacher, former collegiate swimmer, marathon runner and fitness blogger. Her running adventures have taken her to 13 marathons (and more half marathons than she can count!), including a recent Boston Qualifying time (BQ). Lindsay is a race ambassador for the Chevron Houston Marathon and the California International Marathon. She teaches yoga at Revolution Studio and loves when runners come to her classes! Lindsay catalogues her fitness adventures and stories from the road on her blog, Loving Life on the Run.

RUNNING WITH RAVEN is the amazing story of one man, his passion, and the community he inspired. In 1975, Robert “Raven” Kraft, a high school dropout, lonely outcast and aspiring Country songwriter with a drinking problem, made a New Years’ Resolution to run eight miles on South Beach every day, without exception. Over forty years, 125,000 miles, seven hurricanes, chronic back pain and several hospitalizations later, he hasn’t missed a single day.

Raven’s unbroken running streak is an amazing accomplishment, but his true legacy is the community that has built around him. Raven has become a uniquely iconic figure, determined and inspirational to some, oddly compelling to others. And over the years, more than two thousand people from every American state and 80 different nations have met Raven at 5:30 pm at the Fifth Street lifeguard stand to add their footprints to 8 miles of sand on Miami’s beach.
