“Everyone shows up into the sport for reasons greater than themselves…there is this interconnection that we have through running, because really running is part of the human experience.”
Carolyn Su is a runner, storyteller, and the creator of the @DiverseWeRun Instagram account. With nearly 11k followers, Diverse We Run builds “racial representation through story-telling, advocacy, and community” by posting weekly, in-depth features of runners from all backgrounds. In this conversation, we discuss the passing down of language and tradition in our families, marriage and partnership in the context of our cultural backgrounds, and where running fits into it all.
