Megan Foster is smart, talented, funny, and no-nonsense. She is an artist and a runner and in both endeavors embodies the ideals of hard work, perseverance, and committing to long-term goals. Megan patiently does the work required to pursue her passions, all the while trusting the process and remaining focused. Megan is a master printmaker and teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design. She is also a national class runner. Megan is an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier, she has won New York Road Runners’ Runner of the Year award four times, and she will be among the elite field at the TCS New York City Marathon on November 3, 2019. This is a lovely conversation about patience, taking risks, and maintaining perspective in the pursuit of athletic goals.
