Podcasts for Runners
There are so many great podcasts for runners and endurance sports athletes. Through interviews and conversation you can take a peek through the window of somebody else’s success (and failure) and into their goals and hopes and dreams.Inspiration can be found in many different places. Inspiration can come within or can be found in external sources like a song that hits you just right causing you to break out in song with new energy. We can gain inspiration through seeing the positive and kind actions of others or when we see a truly incredible performance of athletics that was expected or a true surprise. The stories that people carry with them every day can provide us with new found motivation and desire to go for goals. That’s where podcasts come in.
If you are looking for a little inspiration there are a wealth of running and endurance sports focused podcasts that will bring you a new spark after a good listen. I have been lucky enough to have been interviewed for several different podcasts and hopefully my words may inspire some of you to set new goals for yourself. Podcasts can be informational and also provide motivation because many of the people who are interviewed are regular every day people just like you and me.
5 Podcasts for Runners to Inspire, Educate and Entertain
Here are 5 of my favorite running and endurance sports focused podcasts including the latest one that I was interviewed for, Diz Runs!
DIZ RUNS is brought to you by Denny or Diz as he is known by friends. He currently lives in Florida with his family where he runs, writes a blog and now brings to you in the running world this awesome podcast where he has interviewed everyone from me to Olympian Nick Symmonds to sharing tips for running. Many of your favorite running bloggers have been interviewed by Diz so be sure to check out this podcast.

Run This World With Nicole DeBoom is hosted by my favorite female entrepreneur, Ironman Triathlete and founder and CEO of Skirt Sports Nicole DeBoom. Nicole turned the women’s fitness clothing industry on its head when she introduced the world to her first running skirt, the TRIKS at IRONMAN Wisconsin in 2004. Today she runs a thriving business and is also a mom to an energetic daughter. Nicole’s podcast features change-makers, the people in our world who have a vision for what the world can become. You will feel inspired after listening to the interviews on her podcasts. I love her most recent episode featuring Robyn O’Brien who talks about “Cleaning Up Our Food.” This is obviously a topic of grand importance and constant discussion in our household since our family business is organic eggs.
Runners Connect Run to the Top with host Tina Muir, elite woman runner. First of all you will be mesmerized by Tina’s British accent. Then you will quickly be drawn in by her realness. Then you will love her knowledge about running and all of the fantastic interviews she does with running influencers, scientists, psychologists, nutritionists, & everyday runners with inspiring stories. There is so much knowledge and inspiration to be gained through listening to Tina Muir and the Runners Connect Run to the Top Podcast.
Trail Runner Nation Are you looking for a discussion about anything and everything related to trail running? Well, then this is the place to give a listen. Here you will find nutritional advice, race discussions, talk about trail running gear and so much more!
Another Mother Runner The Podcast. If you are a mother and a runner or just a female who loves to run I am sure that you have probably come across this great duo of Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell, both runners, mothers, and inspiring authors of several books for women runners. Their podcast will uplift and entertain you while bringing you great running tips and inspiring stories!
