Love it

I have learned so much from Hilary and her guests! So many inspiring stories. The show has joined me through many long training runs this summer including my first 50k at Finlayson Arm!

Awesomely Canadian

This is a funny, insightful, and informative running podcast. Great to see some Canadian content with some inspiring stories. Also very relatable as a running parent of a toddler. Keep up the great work!
