Podcast: Confessions of an Unlikely Runner by Dana Ayers

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! When can you call yourself a runner? Do you have to win a race, run a marathon or just show up?  Do you think of running as punishment or something other people do?  

Today’s interview features Dana Ayers, a US Navy reservist, management consultant and you guessed it, runner.  To her, running is an adventure.  A way to explore and face unknowns.  She was not a high school or college runner.  She considers herself a back of the pack runner who takes it all in and enjoys the unexpected experiences along the way.  

This was a fun interview that showcases the need to have fun and joy with a little wellness thrown in.   I hope you enjoy my chat with Dana. 

You can purchase her paperback on Amazon, download the Kindle version and soon listen to the Audible version at

    Nice! The endurance events perform a greater function for me than just exercise……the long run, long rides are a complete flush of the mind. I don know another way to allow the mind to open, drain down, work, think, dream, as example.
    It is an amazing process and it is fun o run and or ride with individuals with similar like! I love competition but the common dairy is more rewarding. As example to see someone running riding and feeling their way through the process a a new runner, rider….allows experienced runners, riders to share experiences and develop a way to pass on a passion!
    Hanks for all you do…rare indeed to find a doctor and group like yours with total commitment!
    Thanks for sharing!
