We are happy to welcome Sarah Lesko to the Suite Run Podcast! Sarah is the Executive Director and Board President of Bras for Girls and lives by Lake Union in Seattle, WA. She is committed to making sports and body movement accessible and welcoming for all; she believes in the power of sports to improve health, happiness, and equity.

After a collegiate running career at Yale, Sarah became a family doctor, practicing in the Community Health Center setting. Feeling the frustrations of the limitations of allopathic medicine, she returned to get her Masters in Public Health to be able to focus on community-based needs. In 2015 Sarah took a hiatus from practicing medicine to work with Oiselle, the women’s athletic apparel brand based in Seattle, WA. In 2017, Sarah helped start the Bras for Girls program and shepherded its growth as well as its transition to an independent non-profit in 2021. Sarah is honored to serve Bras for Girls to help ensure that every girl has access to a well-fitting sports bra.

Sarah also coached middle school track and cross-country and witnessed first-hand how a sports bra can change a girl’s trajectory. Small supportive interventions have a big impact. She loves connecting with runners and sports enthusiasts everywhere she travels! 

In this conversation we talk about all of the above and then we chat about the lush green city of Seattle. Sarah guides us on where to RUN, dine out, cool races to experience, plus special adventures that you have to check out in and around Seattle.

Take us on your next run and enjoy the conversation!
