305 episodes

A collective of conversations that inspire and encourage runners who know deep down that the world we want to create already exists and that we all play a role in bringing it to life. Join former professional runner and life-long athlete, Tina Muir in this unique running podcast. We don’t talk with professional runners about their wins, what shoes to wear, or what training is best. Instead, we relate every experience back to you, and love to think hard about the questions and dialogue you want to listen to and learn from.

While we bring on well-known guests like Rich Roll, Kara Goucher, Michael Gervais, David Epstein, Alison Desir, and Des Linden, these are not the same old conversations. It’s more like overhearing two friends talking about the deep thoughts that weigh on our hearts daily. Join us in discovering the power of running, why our sport has always been part of humanity, and how we can use it as a tool for realizing our truest self, uplifting our communities, celebrating cultures, and taking care of our Mother Earth.

    Kyle Robidoux: The Running Community Is More than Just Running

    Kyle Robidoux was ready to run the Boston Marathon this year, with Tina as his guide, until fate intervened in the form of a stress fracture.  However, he's well versed in overcoming adversity and tough situations.

    When he was eleven, he was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a degenerative eye disease that can lead to blindness. Today he shares the story of his journey, how he ensures that he isn’t defined by the boundaries that others place on him, and a few beer recommendations.

A great running podcast

Tina asks such great questions on this podcast. Also, the recently added Together Runs have been inspiring and motivating. She is a real class act and I look forward to listening to Running for Real each week- sometimes twice a week!

Awareness

Great method to stay in touch with your body and be aware of its changes from the beginning to middle and end of a run

The only must listen podcast I subscribe to

I love this podcast and the community that has formed around it. Tina does a fantastic job on bringing on interesting guests and she must do a TON of work preparing for them, it shows in the final product. I get so much out of this. Thank you Tina!
