Ode to the On the Runs Podcast

On the Runs podcast launched in 2021
by four college besties who designed a podcast about those who run.
OTR morphed and transformed and now there are two
Eric and Erika hold the mics pouring their hearts and souls into all that they do.

Inspiring stories with journeys that will move you to laugh and to cry
they take exquisite time to prep notes while asking questions on the fly.
There’s a wonderful flow as hosts and guests banter with ease
after to one episode you listen you’ll say give me more please.

They craft each podcast with dedication and care
editing with precision before on social media they share.
To enrich the experience there’s videos to enhance what’s been said
this podcast brings so much more than just another talking head.

You’ll be wowed by the people who dare to be vulnerable and real
how they found their way to running so their lives they could heal.
Guests share phenomenal goals set with determination and grit
Eric and Erika help them to shine using compassion, warmth and wonderful wit.

They get personal and intimate painting portraits of life
how getting moving was used to overcome challenges and strife.
From addiction to illness, obesity and more
guests share their strength and resilience for whatever life had in store.

Beyond  achieving goals for themselves there’s a purpose greater than speed
guests using their races to fundraise to help others in need.
The “Pod” is so much more than ego saying “look what I can do”
it educates while entertaining and yes there are stories of a “code brown” or two.
