Hosts Chris Farley and Julie Culley talk about things through a runner's lens.
Ep 285 - DC Half (Hilary Biggs)
This week Farley is flying solo. The opening conversation focuses on 2 running news stories that made mainstream headlines. First the story of Noah Lyles calling out the NBA for calling their NBA Finals the "World Champs". Then the talk is of the marathon in Mexico City that DQ'ed 11,000 runners for cutting the course.
Farley is then joined by Hilary Biggs the Race Director for the DC Half. The DC Half Marathon is September 17th, and has had record sign ups. Hilary talks about her journey from working in Sports in DC 20+ years ago to now where she is putting on one of the largest Half Marathons in the DC area.
In her first ever podcast, Hilary nails it!
Ep 284 - Recording In An Airstream (Tommy Nohilly)
Julie and Chris are back in studio for another episode of PTN! This week the hosts dive back into some hard hitting personal life discussions (Chris can't wait for the kids to go back to school, Julie does all the planning around the house) - and Chris continues to be amazed how much work there is to do to just get the kids organized for their activities. Typical...
They are joined this week by the new head coach of the Atlanta Track Clubs elite team, Tommy Nohilly! Tommy is a New Yorker that is heading down south to run the mid distance track program for the club.
Julie and Chris go down memory lane with Nohilly, talking to him about his career as a runner and all the coaching stops he's had along the way - including being a coach for Julie at the NJNY Track club in the 2010's.
They finish the show with some optimism that the podcast is, in fact, back!!
Ep 283 Season 2, Episode 1 (Tinoda Matsatsa)
PTN is back! Finally. Julie and Chris record from Clarendon for the 1st podcast of 2023. The hosts talk about where they have been, what they've been doing, and why it's taken so long to get back to recording a show.
They are joined in studio by Tinoda Matsatsa, a High School star runner. Tinoda was the first African American runner to break 4 minutes in the mile. He also holds the 3rd fastest 800m time ever in the history of High School Running.
Julie and Chris talk to Tinoda about his upcoming U20 national meet that is happening in Eugene Oregon.
They close the show with the results from that race and a promise to be back in 2 weeks.
Ep 281 - Running While Black (Alison Desir)
This week Farley is on location at the Georgetown Pacers Running store interviewing Author and Running Influencer, Alison Desir! Alison starts the show by reading a chapter from her new book: Running While Black. She tells a story of running from Harlem to Washington DC for the Women's March in 2017.
Throughout the conversation we tease stories from her new book. In addition, we talk about the issues in running for minorities. The lack of diversity in running has been overlooked for years. Alison is leading the way in trying to change that. Its a lively discussion that ends with audience questions.
PTN Ep 280 Who Was More Influential? (Johnny Pace)
Julie is back! We quickly catch up with the co-host who has been away from the show for a month. After getting reacquainted, we set the stage for our guest running videographer, Johnny Pace. Johnny joins us to talk about his new short film that he did for Pacers Running, Cooper. We discuss how both Julie and Chris got to know Johnny. We talk about the story of Pace Photo, the business he is growing in this running space. Johnny also talks about balancing a full time job while doing content creation all over the country. We discuss how he is a professional with a nomadic life that is possible now in the world we live in. Julie and Chris throughout the interview fight over who was more meaningful to Johnny's development.
We close the show with a family story that might be more typical than it should be in the Farley household.
Ep 279 - The Filler - Mike Wardian
This week Farley is back in Studio 1A and he is joined by Arlingtonian Ultra marathoning legend Mike Wardian.
Chris is Mike reminisce about the good old days of the Pacers Racing team in the late 90s and Mike's journey to join the team. We spend the bulk of the interview talking about Mikes Run across America this past summer. A run that was inspired by the Movie Forrest Gump. Mike raised over $100,000 for World Vision!
We end the show talking about the DC Half marathon and what an amazing experience it was.
Thoughtful and Funny
Great for runners in the DMV and beyond who want to hear thoughtful conversations about running and the wider fitness community. The hosts have a great chemistry and obviously do not mind one another’s company.
PTN is a must listen for any runners in the DMV area (and beyond). The hosts have great chemistry and distinct personalities that shine through in their banter and conversation. They broach a variety of topics in the running world, and then some. This show is made for your weekend long run! If you are looking for somewhere to start, some of my favorite episodes are: #57, 77, 89, 116, 154, 180 and 193, just to name a few.
Informative and Fun!
Loved the interview with Bethany S. Pacer’s podcast is so good! If you run, enjoy humor, and want to learn more about the running scene, this is a great listen!
