“I am here to try and find the best version of myself.” Sarah Cummings

“I am here because running makes me feel the most alive.” Kaitlin Goodman

“I’m here because I found running later in life, and it felt like it fed my soul.” Amanda Nurse

“My why is Gabe Grunewald.” Ladia Albertson-Junkans

“I’m here because running feels like home. And because despite years of subpar performances and giving up on myself, I had people who didn’t, and I’m very grateful for that.” Jenny Donnelly

It was a tremendous honor and privilege to host a live show at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Expo in Atlanta, GA, with five former Ali on the Run Show guests and Trials runners: Sarah Cummings, Kaitlin Goodman, Amanda Nurse, Ladia Albertson-Junkans, and Jenny Donnelly. This was an inspiring, uplifting, at times emotional conversation about goals, the running community, choices and sacrifices, and each woman’s “why.”
