Ep. 113 – Kara Lubin Founder of The 100 Mile Club

Share

 

            

Kara Lubin, a 4th generation public school teacher and special education specialist. started the 100 Mile Club® in 1992 with 15 kids and one idea: run 100 miles and earn a gold medal. What Kara didn’t realize, however, was that she was starting a national movement…literally! This year alone, her national nonprofit organization, the 100 Mile Club, will reach 1.2 million students in over 4,700 schools spanning all 50 states and internationally.


With “slow and steady” as her mantra, Kara has since become an ultrarunner and recently completed her first 4-day event running her first 100 miles, and has run several 50Ks but still has yet to complete a marathon or 10K.

Special for Dirt in Your Skirt Listeners

If you were inspired to start a 100 Mile Club® at your local school or group Kara has offered a special just for the podcast. If a new school or group registers for 100 Mile Club® and mentions Dirt in Your Skirt under “How did you hear about us?”, the organization will sponsor 5 Youth 100 Mile Club Signature Incentive Packages with their purchase of 20 or more Incentive Packages.

Thanks to Kara for continuing to help others and help the youth of today get active and healthy and chase their own goals.

    • The old saying goes... give a man a fish they will have a meal. Teach a man to fish and they will eat for the rest of their life...
🎣
I was so young when I learned to fish it’s just always been a part of my life. I sometimes take the skill for granted because it’s always been there.
🐟
Over the weekend I got to share this skill with a couple of my nephews and nieces.
🎣
One in particular is the only one in his family not into running and hiking. Reed is more into his card games Ukio (or something like that) and Pokémon and the tv series that go along with it.
🎣
A week or two before the family reunion Reed told his mom he wanted a fishing pole 🎣. His mom said try it first.
🐟
Well within minutes of his first cast he was hooked. Watching his face bring in his first trout was magical.
::
After he caught it he said “I hope I like the way it tastes!” His uncle helped him clean the fish and he ran it back down to the truck (it was a 2.5 mile hike up to the lake) cooked it up with his uncle and said “Yum” as he took his first bite.
::
The world has another fisherman and he talked about the experience the rest of the reunion. I am one proud aunt.

    • Five days of digital detox at my inlaws yearly family reunion. This year the family changed it up with a camping trip.
::
Five days in the mountains with no cell service. I didn’t take many photos but l’m a sucker for a sunrise photo with my dogs.
::
Walking away with over 25 miles of trails under my feet, a couple hours of fishing, teaching kids to fish (probably the highlight), high mountain lake swimming, and taking some alone time to do a 14 mile trail hike/run to get to see the sunrise at over 10,500 feet.

    • You know it’s another hot one when the bees are bearding like this.
::
Bearding is kinda like hanging out on the porch on a hot day when it’s too hot in a non-air conditioned house.
::
Hanging out and trying to keep cool.
