Awesome podcast for runners and non-runners alike
As someone who’s run for a long time but never been super serious about it, I love Off The Couch’s more casual approach. You don’t need to be logging ultra’s or know the names of all the top runners in the world to enjoy this podcast. Instead, the conversation feels casual, accessible, and interesting, whether you’re a serious or not-so-serious runner.
