I know I am late to adopting these “new” trend, but I am crazy for podcasts about running. I have to thank the popular series Serial for opening my eyes to this rich informational depot.
Here are the ones that I listen to regularly.
Another mother runner -Dimity and Sarah (or SBS) have years of running experience and a great community of “bad-ass mother runners.” Their website is great as well. They are very real people and my favorite part of their podcasts is the chit chat between them prior to the topic of the day. They end their podcasts with the message “many happy miles to you” So cute.
Marathon Training Academy– This couple, Angie and Trevor have a relaxed but encouraging style. Angie is pushing her running to the ultra marathoner status and Trevor is keeping himself in shape to run half marathons. They have amazing race recaps and guest speakers. You can be part of the academy by purchasing a training plan and even be a private client of Angie’s. I have not spent any training dollars on this but have found their information to be very good. Trevor signs off each podcast with ” remember you have what it takes to run a marathon” I need that positive affirmation!
The Running Lifestyle show– Kari Gormley and Sarah RD are great match. Kari can talk for a very long time and Sarah’s advice part of the show is short and concise. I enjoy them both equally. Kari and Sarah are fundraising for their race entry in Chicago and NYC marathons. I feel their pain as I remember the tough time I have had in the past fundraising for charity. They also cover more lifestyle topics than just running like sleep, diet and depression.
Run to the Top– Tina Muir is an elite athlete that runs for the Saucony Hurricanes. She gives a recap of her amazing training but doesn’t make me feel bad that I am no where near that level. She is from Great Britain and so she is very pleasant to listen to. This site is run by Runners Connect. There is so much information on this site. They have webinars about injury prevention, cross training, you name it.
Listening to these keeps training top of mind and also reminds me that its ok to modify your plan if you need to. As long as you are working toward that goal.
Do you know of any other podcasts I should check out? I have a 75 minute commute each way to work so I have time to add more.
