Not Real Runners

If you're the casual runner who would rather have a fun time than a good finish time, we're the podcast for you. We're the type of runners that run for pizza, are more concerned with our costume than pace, and stop to pet every dog. Join us as we make our way through the world of running in the back of the pack.
