Monika Allen was running the 2014 LA Marathon in her Wonder Woman top and one of the tutus that she makes for her company, Glam Runner, to benefit a great charity called Girls on the Run. The editors from Self Magazine used an image of Monika and her friend, who was also wearing a tutu plus a Super Girl top, and the copy that ran with the photo called BS on what they called their “Selfy guide to what’s legit and what’s lame this month.” What the folks at Self did not know was that Monika was dealing with brain cancer and was running the marathon while she was going through chemotherapy. The public was outraged with Self. Monika came on our show to chat about the firestorm, about her health now and her plans to do more marathons plus a few triathlons this summer.
