Ali on the Run Show Episode 665: Emma Bates & Dom Scott, Team Boss Marathon Training Partners

“I bought a new house. And I also got a couple of goats.”

It’s marathon training season, baby! And today, we get to hear from training partners, teammates, and professional runners Emma Bates (making her seventh appearance on the Ali on the Run Show!) and Dominique Scott (returning for the third time!) as they gear up for their fall marathons. They talk about how they’re feeling, what their runs together are like, and how coach Joe Bosshard is approaching their training. Plus, Emma’s decision to pull back from sharing her training on social media, an introduction to Thelma and Louise, and some big fall marathon news from Dom!
