AB47C ,

Great podcast!

I really enjoy listening to podcasts about running and this one is fantastic! I love how the podcast has guests and content ranging from the standard household names to college, professional and everyday runners. I listen to the podcast while on walks with my two month old and I feel like I’m walking and talking with friends. Great podcast if you are into all things running!

Love Running Talk!

Yes, this is awesome! Sincerely an avid runner!
But feel political views should not be expressed.
Thank you!

Love love love

I’ve been so tired of listening to the same songs on my playlist so I opted for a podcast today. I listened to one and then another. They were both super relevant to my running thoughts lately, and the information they provided was just what I was looking for. I follow Lauren on Instagram so I already feel like I know her, but besides that they both are super chill and very relatable. It was like my friends and I were running and talking the talk. I’ll be back for more tomorrow!
