Looking forward to training for my 50miles on my 50th bday in july listening to the podcast! 🏃🏼‍♀️❤️ 🌄

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week. I love the variety of segments. Some are informational, some are inspiring and some are just funny. Thank you!

The Podcast for ALL Runners

The segmented structure of the podcast is great! The content is even better! On top of that, there is great lighthearted humor placed into the mix. It’s a podcast that can be relatable for all runners from beginner to advanced, which I greatly appreciate. The stories told are also very motivating and help me get a foot out the door to go for a run. I encourage anyone who runs or is interested in getting into running, to listen to the podcast!

Sarah Vander Neut is a runner and artist with fabric. Her handcrafted running jackets are the best.  Fact.

We searched all over and found the most incredible running shorts and hooded running shirts.  Softer than a baby’s bottom and stronger than grandpa’s coffee breath.
