Every week on the Ali on the Run Show, I talk with inspiring people who lead interesting lives on the run and beyond. And while running is what brings us all together, on these episodes, we’re digging a little deeper. These conversations are about the decisions people have made to get where they are today, and how getting sweaty has factored in. Whether you’re on the run toward something great or away from something that’s holding you back, join me on this never-ending adventure, and let’s all pick up the pace together.

Do you have guests on your podcast? If so, would you be interested in speaking with Randy Hetrick CEO and Founder of TRX?

Kristin B. says: November 16, 2019 at 1:29 pm

Love love love! Ali – your heart, humor, honesty, curiosity, courage and corniness make for one awesome podcast! I’m 51 years old and have been a runner for 30 years. I have two daughters – 17 and 20 – and empathize with your new-mom challenges and thrills. I only recently discovered podcasts after decades of musically-motivated runs. Ironically, a high hamstring injury forced me to drop the running a few months ago (temporarily, dammit!), and also withdraw from my lottery-secured spot to run the NYC Marathon (LOVED your recent episode about the announcing experience!). Podcasts, yours in particular, have kept me positive, motivated, inspired and educated as I share in others’ experiences. Thank you for your contribution to the community and for being an inspiration in ways beyond the run.

I may be late, but your inspiring stories are my best company in morning running sessions.

Thanks and keep rocking !!


I recently found this podcast. It is inspiring, thought-provoking and is fabulous to listen to “on the run”. The guests are interesting and diverse in the running industry and the stories are amazing. Additionally, the host does an exceptional job of connecting with her guests and conducting fabulous interviews.
