Ali on the Run Show Episode 174: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Ali on the Run Show

Date: September 18, 2019 at 7:19 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 1

“If you are sitting on an idea, a dream, a plan, the longer you wait to execute on it, the sooner someone else will. So stop waiting, stop procrastinating. Do as I say, not as I’ve done!”

It’s solo episode time! On this episode, I’m talking all about what goes on behind the scenes of the Ali on the Run Show, answering listener questions about getting started, choosing guests, recording, editing, working with sponsors, pay days, and more. I also talk about the episodes I’ve recorded but never aired — and why — and share a few never-before-told stories. Next week it’s back to regularly exciting running-related programming. Until then, I hope you enjoy this long-winded peek behind the microphone.
