Sarah and Tish have the honor of talking to running royalty, 2x Olympian Ryan Hall and pro runner Sara Hall. The couple tells the story of adopting their four daughters, sisters from Ethiopia, and Sara talks about the adjustments she’s made to her training schedule (and life!) now that she’s a #motherrunner. She details the ups-and-downs of her pro career, taking the listener through the injury-riddled lead-up to April’s Boston Marathon and her hard-fought second-place finish at the USATF Half Marathon Championships (just two days prior to the recording of this episode). Ryan shares what it’s like to be a spectator at Boston instead of a competitor, then segues into what the title of his new memoir, Run the Mile You’re in, means to him.

Ryan admits how nervous he felt about retiring from professional running—then breaks news regarding the launch of an online personal training program he is involved in called Run Free Training. (You heard it here first!!) The show wraps with Ryan and Sara answering mother runner questions from Facebook.
