And while running is what brings us all together, on these episodes, we're digging a little deeper. These conversations are about the decisions people have made to get where they are today, and how getting sweaty has factored in.

    Krissy Gear, 2023 U.S. 3000m Steeplechase National Champion

    Krissy Gear, 2023 U.S. 3000m Steeplechase National Champion

    "I’m trying to appreciate the peaks and the valleys — but there’s a lot of beauty in the hillside, too."
    Last year, Krissy Gear stormed on the steeplechase scene by taking the win at the 2023 USATF National Championships, earning her first national title and a spot on Team USA for the World Championships in Budapest. Now, Krissy is gearing up for this summer's U.S. Olympic Track and Field Team Trials, and is officially one to watch in the 3000m steeplechase. In this conversation, Krissy talks about how she's feeling a few weeks out, about the pressure to perform when you're "one to watch," and about her passions off the track. Krissy lives in Flagstaff, AZ, and is a member of HOKA NAZ Elite.

    Emily Mackay, 2024 World Indoor Championships 1500m Bronze Medalist

    Emily Mackay, 2024 World Indoor Championships 1500m Bronze Medalist

    "I feel the most confident I’ve ever been."
    Emily Mackay is having a heck of a year on the run! The Team New Balance Boston athlete earned a bronze medal at World Indoor Championships in the 1500m earlier this year, and has kicked off her outdoor season with strong performances including a personal best at the Prefontaine Classic, where she ran 3:59.76. In this conversation, Emily reflects back on her early running days, and shares why she dreamed of going pro with the NB Boston team (including teammates Elle Purrier St. Pierre and Heather MacLean) and coach Mark Coogan. She talks about the confidence it took to make that major move with 400m to go at World Indoor Championships, and about why that race was both a confidence-booster and a big learning experience. And, with the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team Trials looming, Emily — who is absolutely one to watch in the 1500 — talks about the pressure to perform in an Olympic year.

    LIVE from the RBC Brooklyn Half Finish Line with Becs Gentry & Zac Clark

    "I feel like life should be back to normal. And it’s not!"
    Welcome to the 2024 RBC Brooklyn Half finish line! I was delighted to be one of the guests for a live recording of the Set the Pace podcast with host Becs Gentry. In this episode, I reflect a bit on my history with the Brooklyn Half, including why I wasn't able to run this year's race (more on that here), and then share the recording from the show with Becs and Release Recovery Foundation's Zac Clark.

    It's Been a Year...

    It's Been a Year...

    "I remember being acutely aware that it was the worst day of my life up to that point, and the world was still going. People were out for runs in Central Park. People were going to the office. People were picking their kids up from school. It felt like everyone else’s world kept turning and I was in purgatory."
    It's been one year since I was diagnosed with stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma with DCIS. Breast cancer. A diagnosis that rocked my world and changed my life. In this solo episode, I'm reflecting on the past year, including revisiting some of my notes and thoughts from one year ago, and sharing what happens next.

    Anne Keane, 3-Time Marathoner Living with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer

    Anne Keane, 3-Time Marathoner Living with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer

    "It’s processing all of these emotions that you have with things that you’re anticipating you are not going to be able to see. Like my daughter is a year and a half at this point. Am I going to see her go to elementary school? And then of course you’re Googling the results. It is awful."
    One year after giving birth to her daughter, Anne Keane decided it was time to get back into a workout routine. On her quest to get active again, she felt a tightness in her sternum. What she hoped was nothing serious was stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. In this conversation, Anne talks about receiving and living with a scary diagnosis for which there is treatment, but no cure. She talks about finding running, and about becoming a three-time Boston Marathoner as part of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team. Anne is the SVP of client services at an agency where she "does really cool events with really cool people," she's a jewelry designer, and she's an absolute force.

Grandmom

I truly love Ali and look forward to her podcasts! Ali won’t want to hear this but it was sad for me to hear her focus so much in the turkey hitting her car within an hour of her grandmom passing away and how that disrupted her day. You are alive, Ali. You were able to see and be with your daughter after that. Focus on what’s important - family and friends like you normally seem to do. 🩷

Comfort On The Run

The Ali on the Run Show is the perfect podcast that gets you out the door even on the hardest days! The laughs are never ending and she always keeps you going even when you don’t think you can reach your daily finish line. Ali becomes your best friend over the years and its the countless miles she’s inspires while out running with her in your ears. The world class athletes she interviews show far past their race times and help relate to the fact that all people have good and bad days, even the pro’s. It’ll forever be my running podcast that i thrown on when running because with Ali you’re never running alone. ❤️
