Running is much more than a sport to Liz Rock, co-founder of the Bra Run and the women’s running crew, TrailblazHers. Its impact on her goes far beyond the physical benefits. As Liz says, “Running has been such a huge pillar in my life that it’s legit changed who I am.”
She’s changing the lives of other women, as well. TrailblazHers isn’t about competition; it’s about collaboration. It takes a holistic approach to its community, caring about its members’ mental, spiritual and emotional health, not just the mileage that they run. It’s about women believing in themselves and holding space for each other.

Thank you to Tracksmith, Örlö, and Athletic Greens for sponsoring this episode.
Tracksmith is an independent running brand inspired by a deep love of the sport. For years the brand has elevated running wear using best-in-class materials and timeless silhouettes that perform at the highest level and can be worn everyday, not just for running.
Tracksmith helps the environment by making comfortable, durable clothes that will last for years, rather than winding up in the landfill, but that’s not the only contribution they make. They supported Running for Real in creating our RED-S: Realize. Reflect. Recover program. They help athletes who are trying to make the Olympic trials, and they offer scholarships for creatives to work on their crafts. They also have lots of events - Tina will be hosting events with them at the Boston and London marathons.
Go here and use the code TINA15 at checkout. It will give you free shipping and Tracksmith will donate 5% of your order to Rising Hearts, the Indigenous-led nonprofit founded by Jordan Marie Daniels.

AG1 is an easy way to get 75 vitamins, minerals, and whole food source ingredients. It promotes gut health with prebiotics, probiotics, and naturally occurring enzymes; supports your immune system with Vitamin C, zinc, healing mushrooms, and more; provides magnesium to boost energy; and it's packed with superfoods, adaptogens, and antioxidants to help recovery. It’s simple to make and it tastes good!
This is the time of year when our immune systems can use a boost, not only because it’s cold and flu season, but because with less sunlight, our vitamin D levels drop. Go here to get five free travel packs of AG1, and they’ll also send you a free one year’s supply of vitamin D3+K2 with your subscription, to help keep you healthy year-round.
