My favorite podcast!

I have been listening for years and can’t believe I’ve never left a review. Sarah and Dimity (and now Molly, Adrienne, producer Alex and the crew!) feel like old friends that have been with me through pregnancies, postpartum and now even navigating the teen years. My running-specific training has been mixed with other exercise through the years, but the variety of advice always helps keep me moving. Thank you for the years of “friendship” and I look forward to many more!

Early morning routines-#399

Love this podcast and love what u had to say about morning routines. I felt like I did each and every one of those things just in my own way. I love to either read,mediated or journal before my run with a cup of coffee of course. That way I can let it digest to of course take my morning poop then out the door. I have 3 kids from 8-13 years old. So mornings are my everything. Before I head to work. And Hubby takes care of the kids in the morning, I’m on afternoon duty. It all works out. Thank u again for making such a great podcast that’s so relatable to moms who work and run.

Funny, informative, inspirational

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I’m not a mother, but I’ve been running for a few years and have learned so much through this podcast! I love the information and interviews packaged with a lot of humor and relatable stories. I probably wouldn’t still be a runner if not for this podcast and the inspiration and information I get from my weekly listens!
