Listen To These Podcasts During Your [Long] Run
If you know City Fit Girls, you know we're always up for a good group run. There's nothing like tackling a 6, 12, or 20-miler with a few friends while chatting about personal/professional goals, relationships and pop-culture. Unfortunately there will be times when you have to skip a group run and hit the trails solo. No worries. We compiled a list of podcasts that are - almost - as good as talking with your bff when you're putting in your long miles.
Each podcast is hosted by rockstar women who discuss a range of topics including business, finance, relationships, news and more. Check out our list below.
