Welcome to the Ali on the Run Show!

I’m your host, Ali Feller, and every week on the Ali on the Run Show, I talk with inspiring people who lead interesting lives on the run and beyond. And while running is the thing that brings us all together, on these episodes, we cover more than just what happens on the run. We learn the whys behind the runs. The decisions people have made to get where they are today, and how getting sweaty has factored in. Whether you’re on the run toward something great or away from whatever is holding you back, let’s pick up the pace together.
