Aliphine Tuliamuk: Anybody Can Be A Role Model

Aliphine Tuliamuk may have won the US Olympic Marathon Trials earlier this year, but it is her big heart that has gathered attention.

This conversation was a way to get to know a woman who is from Kenya with very little, and ultimately, proving herself as one of the best marathoners in the country.

If you find yourself saying "sorry" all the time, this episode will truly change your entire outlook. It certainly did for me. If you struggle with confidence and belief in yourself, time to listen up.

Neely Spence Gracey: Everyone Has A Story

Neely Gracey is back on the show, this time with guest host, Sarah Crouch, to discuss her return running after having her son, Athens, in 2018. Having finished 1st American at Boston in 2018, and running a 69 minute half marathon, Neely looked like she would have a clear path back to elite running postpartum. But life doesn't work how we expect, and Neely was thrown curveball after curveball. Neely shows humility and grace, to which I admire, in how she dealt with all the setbacks and I think you will too.
