    good show!!
    I listen to Chris almost every night. Discovered the podcast two months ago. Informative, practical and I have learned a lot! My only critique is— why is this Nicole Winters person on there? I find very little about her helpful and I checked out her instagram page and was very unimpressed. Seemed more like a looks thing than anything else which I hope any serious female athlete would move away from. So not sure why she keeps appearing on here other than a large follower base and maybe to bring more traffic to Chris? I really respect Chris and the other rogue coaches he brings on. But I do feel very disappointed with this Nicole person. I tend to skip the episodes with her (why must women speak in a vapid voice? Why?!!)

    So much to chew on!
    Wow ~ Brilliant, honest insight. So practical. So many take aways from each & every podcast. This one, #326, I’ll be listening to again, knowing there will be more to gain and improve the mental aspect of my running. Thank you!

    Chris Continues to Deliver
    Chris continues to deliver excellent content. I always learn from this podcast. Lessons about running, but also lessons about life. This podcast has made me a better runner! Thanks Chris and keep up the good work!

    Excellent Podcast
    I’ve just started running again after long medical treatment and major surgery to correct rare condition. Did my first half and full marathon under doctor’s guidance and pace limitations, and as an excited runner have devoured the internet for information regarding training and gear😂 I tried a simple basic and easy plan for my training and find your podcast among the best! Your training principles are excellent and very applicable to all levels of runners! Your suggestions make sense for my goals in running for enjoyment and for seeking improvement. Even for an older runner like myself just seeking self improvement, I find your training principles are applicable and definitely working for me! Thank you for putting out an excellent podcast! Aloha! Alan

    Helpful and interesting
    This podcast provides useful & thoughtful information for runners. Can get a little dry at times, but worth a listen as info. is well-researched and thorough. One issue if you are sound-sensitive, host has habit of smacking lips at end of sentences which can be quite distracting and potentially annoying over time.

    Helpful, informative, interesting!
    Chris does a tremendous job with this podcast. Let’s be honest - the weekly topic of running could get very stale, but not here. He does a great job of keeping each episode very enjoyable with relatable tips that you can really apply to your own running. I love when he mixes in current events in the running world and provides his perspective. My favorite episodes are when he previews big races and offers tips - these have been super helpful in the past. Also love Chris’ smooth, soothing voice. A great listen and recommended for all runners!

    Very relatable
    Thank you! Episode 302 really hit home. I appreciate you listening to her running journey and digging into realistic ways to accomplish a big goal. Lots to take away from this episode. I always find your podcast very helpful and this one, definitely got an A+ from me! Keep up the great podcast! Patty

    The Best Running Podcast
    I've been listening to Chris since 2018. He transformed my running because I hung onto every word and little by little put into practice everything he was saying which ultimately allowed me to qualify for Boston. This also led me to join his podcast training group in 2020. He's a big reason I decided to become a running coach and create my YouTube channel, Running With Jane, so I could help others like he helped me. Thanks for an awesome podcast through the years...much appreciated!

    Great podcast

    The Best Podcast About Marathon Running
    I started my marathon training journey earlier this summer en route to the Marine Corps Marathon in October (my first). I have listened to many run-related podcasts but Chris’s podcast is by far the best. Why? First of all, his content is far-reaching, in depth and always helpful. Any time I wonder “Does Rogue have a podcast on this topic”, they almost always do (sometimes more than one). I have many favorites but “The Church of the Long Run” is at the top of my long list. Second, Chris is willing to share with you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. Training for a marathon is hard and success requires a lot of big and little steps, many of which can be challenging. Although you might want to hear about “hacks” to running success he opens your mind and soul to the long-term adventure and goal building that running offers. Third, Chris is really easy to listen to when running. He mentioned on one podcast that a running mantra he used for one race was “Run Like Butter”. Well his voice and well organized presentations (with helpful recaps only the way) are smooth on the mind and listening capacity as your brain gets a little foggy on those long runs. Finally, a lot of running podcasts are a little generic in quality. They cover important running topics to be sure but not at the level of depth and analysis that Chris does. He feels like the coach, or the little angel on your shoulder, when you listen to him. If you have time or desire to listen to just one running podcast, this is the one you should listen to. After the MCM, I going to find out how to train with Rogue Running for my future running adventures.

    When can we read your book?!
    Chris, your experience, wisdom and perspective as a coach and runner is so valuable and helpful to me as a 37 yo mom of two who still wants to get faster and do big things. Thanks for sharing so much for free! You really should write a book about running and longevity. 😀
  • Gio Calandra
    Takes running knowledge and depth to another level
    As a recreational but competitive runner I’ve loved listening to Chris on his coaching and running experiences. I’ve learned a lot of new concepts I had never heard of. Keep up the amazing job!
  • D Coster
    The best running podcast out there
    Chris does such a good job of addressing all aspects of long distance training and racing
  • Dougship
    It’s great- and an acquired taste
    I live this podcast- substantive, specific, always seems to touch on topics when I’m thinking about them either because time of year or time of season It takes an episode or two in order to get the rhythm of a single voice just talking- but once you get the flow you won’t be disappointed.
  • Dismisser
    Austin Marathon
    I opened my podcasts app specifically to find something about mental toughness for a marathon, and EVEN BETTER this episode has pacing and mental tips for my EXACT marathon (and it was already downloaded to my phone)! Exactly what I needed!
  • kwkng
    Best running podcast!
    Long time listener, first time reviewer. This podcast has changed my running! It is the only podcast I listen to regularly and have listened to every episode at least once. If you want to improve your endurance running and training, I would highly recommend this podcast!
  • jimmyjams&frimmyframs
    Just what I needed
    I’m a sporadic listener since 2020. The main reason I am inconsistent is because my personal running journey. Every time when I get back on the wagon, this podcast revives and rebuilds my running spirit! One of the greatest coaches for my life and I will more than likely come face to face with Chris. Thank you!
  • CJT322
    Such an awesome show
    I’m an aging middle of the packer, working mom of many, with personal goals and a love for the sport. I adore Chris’ accepting attitude about all paces but still maintains such a high quality, deeply substantive show. I listen to tons of running podcasts. I adore this show. I sometimes go back and listen to old shows to reground myself. So good! Thank you for all you do!
  • fipper
    Awesome, deeply thoughtful, well rounded
    Great podcast. Chris offers deep, thoughtful reflections about running and training. Running impacts so many aspects of our lives and psyche. I really appreciate how he brings a discussions of race into the conversations. No runner is an island. We are in a community, the bigger, broader the community the better for all of us.
  • Liz SoCal
    Excellent informationn
    Keep doing what you're doing. A lot of value here. Speak the truth and hopefully society (and hellfighter6) will catch up.
  • jlpdx
    Great resource for self coached
    Chris provides great insights and examples. This show helps me understand a lot of training concepts and helps keep me motivated.
  • Hellfighter6
    Informative, but….,
    Good information and perspective however the host seems concerned with being perceived as being woke. His self promotions to this end are awkward at times and cast a shadow on the overall content.
  • Lanetrain11
    Great show
    This is a great show When is the next episode going to be
  • Dr Laura Fred
    Worth listening to on repeat—so much useful content.
    I’ve been running for 16 years (started at age 50) and thought I was done improving. I started listening to this podcast this summer and have been going through previous episodes (and reviewing some of them numerous times). Putting Chris’s wisdom into practice helped me dust off the rust and get back into racing this summer and fall. His race planning episode set me up to have two consecutive half marathon prs for the season. The mental rehearsal was extremely useful and psychologically sound. Take his advice in training to “run slow to go fast.” Lose the ego. Take time to make incremental changes. And build a big aerobic engine. And the strides. Do the strides 2x a week. I’ve learned SO much. Thank you, Chris. It was also great to meet you in Atlanta at the running with Kara Goucher event at the Marathon Trials in 2020. Clean Sport advocates know how to train smart and reach our long term potential. I’m all ears at this point!
  • Will8019
    Really enjoyed Coach Hudson
    He would be a great co-host! Chris your always great! I recommend this podcast to all my running friends.
  • Hilla99
    Coach Hudson
    Loved episode 167!! Coach confirmed a bunch of my beliefs. I liked that he addressed the different approaches that are necessary for masters runners!! Thank you.
  • Notacricet
    Was better back in the day
    Way to much focus on drugs and your love for a few random woman in running isn’t authentic. Plenty of the runners and coaches you celebrate are just as guilty as the people you despise?
  • RunJDRun!
    Dull and boring
    With a cohost, this podcast was bearable. It’s now become dull and slow. Some good topics, but it’s just so dry that I can’t listen anymore. I wish that were not the case, but until this podcast is injected with some life, even adding things like an intro with music would help slightly. But I really do think that a lively cohost would help rejuvenate this one. We need a little banter and someone who is a little more exciting to listen to. With some changes like these, I’ll be back.
  • troutzilla1
    Very slow
    Unfortunately I had to unsubscribe to this pod that I once enjoyed a lot. Ever since the lost of the co host this pod has turned into a real snoozer. Very sad that it’s not more lively, as it once was!
  • Eowyn99
    Too much pseudoscience
    I like the podcast until he said: “I don’t care what the science says...”. Well, science is about facts, not feelings. Is so frustrating because is so difficult to find podcasts based on facts about running.
  • Recyclesaurus
    Solid running podcast
    I really enjoy this podcast. It is perfect for any running nerd that enjoys delving deeper into the sport. I do miss Steve Sisson. He played a good foil for Chris on topics. Revision: Chris has recently become too focused on people and trends he does not like in the sport. Without any foil to the droning of pessimism I can no longer listen.
  • tickedoffrunner
    Only listening if I can’t sleep before a long run
    I used to listen to this podcast all the time, but the absence of a co-host has made the show a real snoozer. This podcast needs a new co-host and should move the doping conversations to Chris’s Clean Sport Collective show where Kara can keep things on track and be an effective foil for Chris.
  • CapnC425
    Great running info, but too much personal bias at times
    Been listening to this podcast for quite some time and have gained tons of useful information on training, race strategy, etc. However, since Steve left I’ve found that there has been a much bigger focus on personal thoughts and allegations on drugs in the sport. I would rather these personal thoughts be left aside and the focus be on training, current events, interviews, etc
  • mhoat
    Best running podcast
    Thank you for your honest talk about running, and dopers. You aren’t being negative, it needs to be said.
  • WelshinAmerica
    What’s the point?
    What’s the point of having a slow runner near walker on the same pod as an Olympic qualifier and pretend they are the same ? I see you had the chief walker on your show again. “Running” is a sport. Walking fast is not. Being proud of walking fast is embarrassing. If you’re any good, interview people who have progressed proportionally, not just your friends. Anyone can do that
  • Mississippi shopper
    The Best Running Podcast
    I have tried and enjoyed many running podcasts but this one is by far my the best. I started listening for the coaching tips (which are excellent) but have also really enjoyed the running news intros and interviews. Thanks Chris!
  • katersully
    Bonus Coaches
    I feel like I have two extra coaches with Chris (and Steve, who I still miss)! I’ll never stand on a starting line for a goal race again without reminding myself that I’m “present and correct.” The insights that the pod offers for physical and mental training are invaluable, the interviews with pros have made me a true fan of the sport, and Chris is a wonderful, welcoming host who’s created a real community.
  • Marci.Kirk
    Love their real talk about all things running!
    This is an amazing podcast that has made me a true fan of the sport! They have introduced me to so many different aspects of running from my own training to what is happening on the professional level. I love how real they are with any topic that is covered. Through their podcast, I was also able to find a running coach in their program which has been amazing to practice what I hear on their episodes. I always look forward to what is next and anxiously await their recaps from big races! I also LOVE how they incorporate 'non elite' runners and elite runners. Not every running podcast does that and I truly TRULY enjoy it. I would argue that we often need more 'every day runners' I love hearing that what I'm going through is the same as others. I also love hearing from the pros and the fact that they to go through what we do, just at faster paces.

    Becoming a better runner
    The Running Rogue podcast transformed me from a hobby jogger that had no idea what I was doing to a faster and stronger runner. They go into deep dives on the fundamentals as well as more nuanced topics for training. Their advice gains authenticity through coaching experience, research in the field, and perspectives from multiple elite runners. I’ve listened to many running podcasts, and this one truly stands above the rest.

    Best Running Podcast
    I love this podcast. Informative, inspiring, funny, thought-provoking and full of practical info. I loved the most recent format with the question and answer format. And I love the variety of the runners and writers you interview! From every day people to fast women and men to ultra champions. Also, not gonna lie I think it's better now than it was with the two hosts :) I have listened to a bunch of different running podcasts and this one is hands down my favorite.
  • Hookemhogan
    Best out there
    This podcast has played a big role in making running a bigger part of my life. The running principles espoused have improved my training and performance and kept my interest fresh. I’ve developed a huge interest in track and field as a sport, rooting for people whose name meant nothing to me a year ago when I started listening. I hear new and fresh ideas and perspectives regularly (even if I don’t always agree with them) Most importantly to me hearing how the struggles, the triumphs, the ups and downs of elite level athletes actually mirrors my own experience (minus the elite label 😉) really makes me love running more. Can’t recommend enough.
  • Lilhunny888
    Used to listen to it more
    Still a great podcast, I just don't listen to it as often as I did. Current events/news in the track and field world is still my favorite part. I miss having Steve as co-host and thought it was odd that he was there one podcast and gone the next, without much talk of why he left. On a side note, sometimes I hear odd background noises, like someone is emptying a dishwasher of metal plates. Maybe it's just some audio feedback in the podcasting equipment.
  • robmullen262
    On the decline
    Definitely not enjoying this as much since Steve left. I started listening from the beginning and was hooked, then skipped ahead to get Chris’ and Steve’s takes on current events leading up to Boston 2019, only to be disappointed to find out that Steve was no longer around. I’ve had a hard time with most of the 2019 episodes—some of the interviews are solid, but this podcast is definitely missing a lot without another host to balance out Chris. Hope to see that change.
  • Trapsbrah
    Not just for top notch elites.
    I’m just a common guy who likes to jog a title and lift weights. You don’t have to be a competitive runner to enjoy this show. If you just want to hear some grit and determination, start at episode 120, where a woman tells her story of the quest to get a BQ! Riveting! We can all learn important things about running with this show (how to lay back and make the easy miles easy), as we hear how coaches themselves need coaches.

    Podcast just gets better and better
    First few podcasts of the new year have been excellent, building on what was already a strong informative show. Really great insightful conversations with Ben Rosario and Brogan Austin last month, and the most recent with Kate Grace was fantastic. Chris is really nailing it since the format changed to a single host and it clear the rapore he’s able to get with his guests

    Great running podcast with excellent guests! Love the new format too with one host!
  • Paobu_R_Elkins
    Good content
    Podcasts are frequent and well organized
  • lgrayguthrie
    Point counterpoint episodes
    Some of the best episodes are when you have differing opinions but respect each other’s just the same. Love you guys!

    Best runner nerd podcast ever. These guys rule. I’m not worthy. 🌞❤️
