A podcast embarking on the journey of running free from everything holding us back from reaching our full potential in sports, running, and life.
The Run Free Podcast featuring Courtney Barnes
In the latest episode of the Run Free Podcast, we share a conversation with one of our original coaching staff and professional runner, Courtney Barnes. Courtney raced professionally on the track for many years prior to making a transition to trail running. Courtney retired from trail running for a brief period of time, finding that the external change didn't remedy the internal challenges she was facing. In this conversation, we talk about her journey and how she has come back to trail running with a fresh perspective, the lessons she learned and how we can be healthier, happier runners.
And We're Back!
The Podcast is Back! Ryan introduces the new hosts of the Podcast Chad and Jay. The group discusses various topics including how to fully enjoy your running, their history as endurance athletes, and speed development for distance runners.

In this episode I chat about how I’ve experienced frustration to be one of the most powerful catalyst for growth and explore how we can use it as a guide to our breakthrough.
Episode 69: Interview with Olympic Cross-Over and RF athlete (winter to summer Olympian) Chirine
In this episode I talk with one of only 29 athletes in history to compete in both the Winter and Summer Olympics. Of which, Chirine is the only athlete to ever go from an anaerobic event (Alpine Skiing) to an aerobic event (Marathon) in the Olympics. You’ll love hearing Chirine’s story covering everything from handling nerves, transforming her body, coming out the other end of an eating disorder, what it was like living in Lebanon, and how she is feeling leading up to her attempt to qualify for the Olympic Marathon in Tokyo.
