    Lydia: Ultrarunner, mom, model, law student

    Lydia is a young runner from the UK who just finished her first 50km ultra in crazy weather.

Support Hillary

I love this podcast! Hillary is engaging, funny, and genuine. Her guests are interesting and range from elite athletes not new trail runners, and they all have great strides. Hillary start a patreon page so we can all keep listening weekly! Support Trail Running Women so we don’t miss out!

Getting me thru my training

I’m an OCR racer - turned road runner - turned trail runner - and wannabe ultra runner. I started listening while training for my first 50km last year and it got me thru my “wing and a prayer” training. Now that I’m training for my first road marathon (covid-dependent now, I guess), it’s helping me through my more structured training. I love that Hillary curses and that her guests are REAL! She’s a great interviewer and I can totally relate to every episode. She makes the miles fly!

Love this podcast

Full of inspiration. Great interviews and Hillary has a good attitude. She asks all the right questions.
Wish they were made more often. I’ve been marathoning the episodes and will run out soon :/
