I just started listening today and I am hooked. Tomorrow is my first run since I listened during my walk today
She addresses pretty much everything- every obstacle, excuse, and training question for me. Great advice and insights across the board! Two thumbs up!!!
Always a treat
Jill is genuine, funny, knowledgeable and most importantly- real and relatable. She doesn’t pretend to have everything all figured out but she’s also very confident in who she is and what she knows. I really enjoy this podcast and always find it easier to incorporate loving self-talk into my inner monologue after listening.
