Our guest today is multi-sport athlete, Ultra Runner, Professional Chef, self-described advocate and activist for body politics, and 5' 3" Brooklynite force of nature, Latoya Shauntay Snell - also known as the Running Fat Chef.

A quick glance at her Athlinks profile shows 112 races completed, over twelve hundred miles finished and in a span of just 28 days, she crossed finish lines at the Chicago Marathon, Javelina Jundred 60K, and the TCS New York City Marathon. She's a brand ambassador for Trek Bikes, a sponsored HOKA ONE ONE Athlete, and yet, she spends at least part of her time answering critics who say she doesn't "look like a runner".

She talks openly about her DNFs, her detractors, and the additional struggles that have strengthened her as an athlete, woman, wife and mother. She's on a mission to emancipate herself in order to help others see the power in themselves and judging by her successes both in and outside of racing - it's working.
