I’m also trying to train for my first marathon and plan a wedding. I love listening to this podcast during my runs, it’s like having company as I always run on my own and the advice and tips are extremely helpful and have really helped my training! I’l be sorry when it ends!
I have followed on Amy on insta for a while and she’s always been spot on and so honest (and realistic) about training alongside having a life/career! The podcast is packed full of tips and is now my go-to long run listen. Thanks!
I have been listening to this for some as I recently injured my foot running. Listening to this podcast has given me some great tips to help prevent future injuries and also got me thinking about signing up for a half marathon when my foot it totally healed!
