A collective of conversations that inspire and encourage runners who know deep down that the world we want to create already exists and that we all play a role in bringing it to life. Join former professional runner and life-long athlete, Tina Muir in this unique running podcast. We don’t talk with professional runners about their wins, what shoes to wear, or what training is best. Instead, we relate every experience back to you, and love to think hard about the questions and dialogue you want to listen to and learn from.

While we bring on well-known guests like Rich Roll, Kara Goucher, Michael Gervais, David Epstein, Alison Desir, and Des Linden, these are not the same old conversations. It’s more like overhearing two friends talking about the deep thoughts that weigh on our hearts daily. Join us in discovering the power of running, why our sport has always been part of humanity, and how we can use it as a tool for realizing our truest self, uplifting our communities, celebrating cultures, and taking care of our Mother Earth.

    Together Walk (You can still Run!) 31 with Tina: 30 and 45 minute Walk

    Together Walk (You can still Run!) 31 with Tina: 30 and 45 minute Walk

    Join Tina for a unique together walk (while you run) as she takes her time off running and is unable to compete in her 50k due to her children having Covid 19 (and now Tina has it too). You become Tina's therapist in this raw, vulnerable, open time together as she works through her feelings about missing her goal race becuase of her kids being sick. If this is your first together run, one of the others would be a better fit, but if you are a regular listener, or have learned to care about Tina and her journey, this together walk will be a way to connect.

    Together Run 30 with Tina: 40 minute Run

    Join Tina for a very tired #togetherrun as she recovers post NYC marathon before her 50k next weekend. After connecting in with nature to start the run, join Tina for a body scan, senses check in, and conversation for this week's together run. While there is only one option for the run, it means we are all doing the same thing. Tina discusses the importance of recognizing when you are tired, and knowing it is okay to admit things are tough.

Amazing

I just started this podcast around a month ago & I have started from the very beginning & I’m working my way through them. I love listening to all the different guests & hearing why people run. I am not a very fast runner but I love the feeling of achievement I get even just being able to do it at 46. I previously had a back injury & thought at one point I’d never walk for long again.
The range of guests so far has been fantastic & I can’t wait to hear more every time I run, thank you for being so inspiring. I try & talk everyone into running but not many people give it a go. It has literally changed my life.

Running together

Just listened to running together, episode 2. I’m in Northumberland, UK and it was such a different listening experience, I do listen to your regular podcast amongst others but this was just so mentally relaxing. Completely resonate with you playing down your trail win as I did the same when I came first female in a 48 mile race by saying ‘ I got lucky because the faster ladies didn’t turn up’ it really made me think about how I truly didn’t give myself a deserved pat on the back. I get really nervous at events ( to the point of not turning up) so I think your running together might be useful to use in a race 👌 loved it! Rachel
