Every week on the Ali on the Run Show, I talk with inspiring people who lead interesting lives on the run and beyond. 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. 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.

Peyton was the only American-born Black woman who ran that day, and on this episode, she talks about what that was like, and shares how her running has evolved from the days when she would black out while racing in high school and college.

My absolute favorite podcast

I need more episodes per week!! I listen to this on every run, so I am going back into the archives to listen to older episodes every time I run out of new ones. No other podcast keeps me as interested as this one. Ali is the best interviewer and I often find myself “joining in” on the conversation in my head. Keep up the great work Ali!!

Fun, enjoyable, and heart warming

Ali has a way of making everyone feel connected, no matter who the guest is or whether you’re a pro or recreational runner like myself. And I always love the sprint to the finish!

Absolutely love Ali on the run!

This is such a great podcast to listen to! I listen while running or on a walk. Different from other running media outlets. It’s inspiring and interesting - and so much more than just a sports podcast.
