645. Emma Bates, LIVE at the Bayshore Marathon


“That’s the only reason I still do this today, and I’m able to reach new heights in my performance — it’s because of the people that I’m around.”

We heard from Emma Bates here on the Ali on the Run Show right after she ran that 2:22:10 personal best and finished fifth at this year’s Boston Marathon. Now, just a few weeks later, she’s back and she’s live! This episode was recorded in front of a live, 170-person, Disney Channel Original Movie-loving audience at the City Opera House in Traverse City, MI, during the Bayshore Marathon weekend. We caught up, got some life (and dating) updates, and played a few rousing rounds of new-to-the-show games, including Bates Rates, Bates Debates & Hot Takes, and Bates Hates! (Key takeaway from it all: Run hard. Have fun. I love you.)
