At 16, I had it all figured out. By 25, I had my dream job as editor in chief of a teen dance magazine. But now, at 32, I’m not really sure who I am, what I’m doing, or what I want to be when I grow up. I know one thing, though: I love running and I love talking to people. So on the Ali on the Run Show, I talk to everyday runners, professional athletes, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders I find interesting and inspiring, and I get inside their heads to figure out how their decisions, successes, failures, and missteps can help guide my own. Whether you’re on the run toward something great or away from something that’s holding you back, join me on this never-ending adventure, and let’s all pick up the pace together.

🥳

Long time follower since 2012 and the 2020 Hopes & Dreams episode really ignited my love for Ali and this podcast. The interviews are great, but I’m an Ali fan and this solo episode made me so happy. May all the 2020 visions, plans and dreams come true!

The Human Side of Exercise

We’re not robots moving our bodies- we’re flesh and blood with all the limitations, hopes and fears that come with our human condition. Ali brings a ton of humanity to the subject of running, talking openly about chronic illness and her home life. Her interviews really bring out the humanity in her guests while also dropping some helpful knowledge that I’m going to need while preparing for my first 10k since I was in middle school.
