Runners of NYC: Lindsay Crouse of the New York Times
Lindsay Crouse of The New York Times joins the Runners of NYC Podcast just a day after publishing an op-ed and video that highlight’s how Nike does not guarantee female athletes a salary during their pregnancies or immediately after giving birth. It is a powerful piece that also featured Olympians Kara Goucher and Alysia Montano speaking out about the policy. We jump right into the conversation with a discussion about her latest opinion piece and the sports community’s reaction.
Lindsay is a senior staff editor at The Times and an Op-Docs coordinating producer. She grew up in Rhode Island and then went on to run cross country and track at Harvard. After college, she landed in New York City and worked her way to The Times, where she’s since put together some tremendous stories and columns on running and in particular women’s distance running.
In addition to all of that, Lindsay has completed 11 marathons and is planning to chase an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier in the fall. We discuss how her experience as a serious runner also helps her work and storytelling process.
