Ali on the Run Show

Feb 16, 2017

Alice Saunders is the creator of Forestbound, a Boston-based company that makes and sells canvas and leather bags made from historic textiles. Alice is also a super speedy runner and marathoner. She started running later in life, and now boasts some pretty serious PRs, including a 3:19 marathon and a 1:37 half marathon. In this episode, Alice and I talk about how she created Forestbound, why she started running (for a good cause!), and our unathletic pasts — including our best strategies for skipping out on the mile during gym class in fifth grade. (Plus a few hot takes about important things like pineapple pizza.) We’re also hosting a giveaway with this episode! One lucky listener will win Alice’s famous ESCAPE Canvas Utility Bag. (You’re going to want this bag. It’s the best.) To enter, leave a rating and review on iTunes ( before Tuesday, February 21. I’ll pick a winner at random and will announce the lucky ESCAPE bag winner on next week’s episode.
