I now get to take Jen and Rik with me wherever I go!!! As a fan of the From Fat to Finish Line Movie and Facebook page I was excited when this podcast was released. And it didn’t disappoint - learning the background of how these two started running has been a blast. They are honest and funny - I can’t wait to see what the future holds

I love it
