Who am I?

I am the host and producer of the podcast Women's Running Stories, where women share first-person stories about their running experiences. I am also a 54 year old female runner and lifelong competitive athlete. And, I love to listen to and share stories about women athletes. I have been an athlete my entire life and love hearing about the experiences other women have in sport, as well as how they do what they do.

What is my podcast playlist about?

Women in sports, with a focus on endurance sports and running. Not only are the guests women, but so are all of the hosts!

The podcasts I picked and why

1. Hear Her Sports

Why this podcast?

Host Elizabeth Emery is an excellent interviewer (and a former professional athlete herself) and she chooses amazing guests! Even when I don't know anything about the guest or the sport they're associated with, I learn so much and have a better understanding of why and how these women do what they do!

All of the hosts are former or current professional runners who are passionate about the sport of running and always have interesting guest conversations.
