Coming Back: Conversations on life after loss

Jun 11, 2020

Almost immediately after giving birth to her second daughter, Katie Arnold got the news that her father was going to die. Less than 10 weeks later, he passed away from terminal kidney cancer and Katie was forced to reckon with motherhood and the loss of a parent at the same time. Her book Running Home is a detailed look at her life after her dad died. Today we’re talking about how Katie used running to cope with her father’s death, why it’s normal to fear your own death after a loved one dies, and the profound connections between watching life enter the world and watching life exit it.
