Using food as a racial metaphor



A Conversation with International Marathoner, Jaulik Watkins

May 5, 2014

Being stopped at mile 25.5 in the 2013 Boston Marathon, Jaulik Watkins returned to Boston this year to complete what she started. Watkins, a Dallas native, never considered herself an athlete. As an unemployed college student in 2008, she took up running to keep herself busy. After her first marathon, she was hooked on the thrill of long distance racing.  As a member of the National Black Marathoners Association, Watkins has completed seven marathons throughout the U.S., Europe, and will pursue the Mt. Kilimanjaro marathon in 2015. She joined us to discuss her experiences as a black woman running marathons, and being part of a network of other black marathon runners.
