In this podcast, you’ll hear Ryan share about: 

    Why he doesn’t force running on his kids 

    The various hats he wears as Sara’s coach-slash-husband

    His emotional journey to fatherhood and creating a chosen family

    AMR Trains: Adrienne Martini Runs a Naked 5K

    Taking one for the vicarious living team, Adrienne Martini bared her buns—and most everything else—in the Bouncing Buns Clothing Optional 5K. On this entertaining podcast, she bares, among other things:

    the impetus behind getting out of her comfort zone;

    why she opted to wear a sports bra. (Hint: It wasn’t all for support!); and,

    whether or not she’d do it again.

    Here's Adrienne's race account, which interweaves the story of dropping her oldest at college for the first time.

Listener for life!

Loving your show! No matter the guest, I am always captivated. Your easy going, conversational style interviews allow the listener to get to know the person and the athlete/ coach etc. Loved the Boston series as well! Adrianne Haslett's interview was fantastic!

Mostly enjoyable

It gets a bit repetitive over the years and the ads are way too much. But I mostly enjoy the topics and hosts, particularly SBS.

lmcruns ,

Thanks for having Allison on your program

Recognizing women runners are not all white or CIS gender or heterosexual is an important step forward. One foot in front of the other moves us all.
