Rebecca Mehra is a professional middle distance runner who recently burst into the country's consciousness. This viral tweet, detailing how she helped an elderly couple buy groceries, took the internet and traditional media by storm. Long before Rebecca was honored for her empathy she made herself known in the running community. She is third all-time in the 1500m at Stanford and finished third at the 2019 5th Avenue Mile. That performance in NYC came just months after Rebecca was electrocuted so significantly that it affected her stride for weeks. We also discuss Rebecca's love for breakfast burritos and what it's like being coached by one of her idols, and fellow Stanford alumna, Lauren Fleshman.
