Bianca Phillips is a Northeast Arkansas native and longtime Memphian with two decades of experience in local journalism and public relations. She’s a diehard morning person who spends her free time training for marathons and ultras. And she’s the author of “Cookin Crunk: Eatin’ Vegan in the Dirty South.”

After Eliza Fletcher’s kidnapping and killing last year, local runners' sense of security was forever changed. One woman said she had always thought she would outrun anyone who meant her harm, but she knows now that’s not true.
