Ali on the Run Show Episode 267: Catching Up with Emily Halnon

“There’s this possibility to live with this duality of life. You can both grieve and have a really, truly happy day. You can be really stressed and scared, and also be extraordinarily brave.”

In January, the world truly lost one of the greatest lights and coolest women on the planet: Andrea Halnon, or as she’s known around here, “AndyJHa.” Emily Halnon was the very first guest on the Ali on the Run Show, and is one of my dear friends, and when her mom passed away after a 13-month battle with a rare uterine cancer, it was devastating. On this episode, Emily returns to the show to graciously and openly talk about her badass mom’s amazing legacy, and what the grief process is like. She also talks about how she’ll be bravely and boldly honoring that legacy starting this Saturday: By running 453 miles across the state of Oregon, from the California border to Washington, in an attempt to run the Fastest Known Time (FKT) on the Pacific Crest Trail. In doing so, Emily is also raising money for the Brave Like Gabe Foundation, which supports rare cancer research. CLICK HERE TO DONATE. Let’s see if we can get Emily to $10K by the time she reaches Washington! This one’s for you, AndyJHa. We love you.
