Guest Bio:

Dominique and Ken are the creators of Lean In With The Kings, and The Grow Up Wild Podcast. Lean In With The Kings is a platform focused on Marriage, Family and Fitness. Grow Up Wild is about the experience of others from a range of physical fitness, marriage, family, mental health, and individual growth. Dominique and Ken King are from Northern California, and have three children.

Dominique and Ken’s goal is to reach people who are looking for a platform that deals with everyday issues of marriage, family, relationships, fitness while trying to hold onto their individual growth. They created these platforms to share experiences, advice while offering support, a shoulder and an ear. This is their true passion.

Dominique has always been a runner. Running has intertwined itself in her life at various stages. Growing up she used running as a way to escape her home environment. She used to run and walk between towns trying to make sense of why things shook out the way they did for her. In her older years running was my way of maintaining an unhealthy view of what I thought her body should be.

Dominique and I connected via Clubhouse- The Runner’s Lounge where she and her husband talk about all things running. She is my second return guest, and today she is with her husband Ken. Ken has always been athletic but not a runner in the true sense. He did run as part of his training but it was not a primary focus. Because it is Dominique’s passion and Ken wanted to spend more time with his wife, he decided to join her and now they never miss a Couple’s Run Friday
