Hands down, the BEST running podcast!

Trevor and Angie are everyone’s best friends! They are warm and welcoming to their guests and do a fantastic job of blending professional athleticism with the aspirations of everyday athletes. They show the same respect to the weekend warriors as they do to the elites.

They have a wealth of knowledge and experience, are fun and personable and always create a conversation that is easy to listen to while running.

I also appreciate their commitment to each other and their kids as they share how they balance training, work and family life. Regardless of how much or how little you’ve run, there’s a place for you here!
