Ali on the Run Show Episode 259: On the Record with the Hosts of Keeping Track

“I’m not afraid to have the uncomfortable conversations. Does it mean I feel comfortable? No! And I need my allies. I need my friends to say what I’ve been saying.” —Alysia Montaño

Welcome to the first episode in a new four-part series, where I’ll be talking with fellow running podcast hosts about how they view the current state of the running industry and their roles within it. We’re kicking things off with Alysia Montaño, Molly Huddle, and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas, the hosts of Keeping Track! As current and former professional athletes, these three incredibly accomplished women offer a unique lens on the sport. They are mothers, businesswomen, authors, and important voices in running and beyond. On this episode, we talk about how Keeping Track came to fruition, and discuss representation in the running community.

  1. I just listened to this as a way to procrastinate my run! I loved the last bit to encourage us to go for the run. I love your podcast and I’m lacing up my sneakers now!
