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.

Faithful Fan

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.
