Shane Quinn & Tony D'Amato

Ali on the Run Show Episode 661: Shane Quinn & Tony D’Amato, American Record-Holding Husbands

“We were like, what if Emily and Keira tied? What if they cross the line together and they tied? And we said, well what if we had a cage match? Like it was a tie, and then it came down to a cage match?”

Their wives are the fastest distance runners in the country. Today, we turn the spotlight to the sidelines to hear from the husbands. Shane Quinn is married to American record holder in the marathon and former American record holder in the half marathon, Emily Sisson. Tony D’Amato is married to American record holder in the half-marathon and former American record holder in the marathon, Keira D’Amato. And while their wives have been breaking — and trading — records, Shane and Tony have been bonding behind the scenes. In this wildly fun episode, Shane and Tony D. talk about what it’s like being married to professional runners at the top of their game, about how they’ve learned to show up and show their support, about how to be a supportive partner without sacrificing their own goals and dreams, and about…cage matches. A surprising amount of talk about cage matches. (Your move, Ryan Hall.)
