One of the best running podcasts I have found yet. Lee them coming
Honestly I want to give this podcast a 4 star because the only thing that I don’t like about it is that it has one episode around every 7-9 days. It’s so good I wish it was everyday so I never have to wait! This podcast has helped me get prepared for my first marathon and they have fun stories and great advice! Highly recommend it to anyone who is running or thinking about getting into running.
I am a runner of ten years and have been sitting on a plateau for a few years now. My brother pointed me in the direction of this podcast and I am so glad he did! Since I have started listening to the show, I have hit 5k, 10k and half marathon PRs. My eye is now on the prize: marathon PR. Thanks to the podcast, I am now committed to my marathon goals, not just interested.
