About the show

Hamstrings and Heartstrings is two friends, Chris and Ellie, catching up and having some straight running talk. One of us is real competitive with our running and the other is pretty chill. We'll leave it as an exercise to the listener to decide who is who. The answer may not be the same for each episode!

We promise to mostly talk about running and running-related things but don't be surprised if some general nerdery sneaks in. And definitely expect talk about what we're eating. Afterall, Food is running related!


  • 003: Out of Food by Tuesday and a Half

    January 10th, 2020  |  Season 1  |  39 mins 7 secs

    Ellie is in a bit of a training funk and Chris is a bit of a work funk. It’s not exactly pure joy around here at H2, but we promise to provide a few chuckles! We commiserate a little bit and gain a little bit of perspective along the way. Plus, there’s always comfort food!

  • 002: In the Corner, Just Drinking Franks

    January 8th, 2020  |  Season 1  |  39 mins 20 secs

    Ellie and Chris get together on Christmas Evening to bring you some hot, hot content (and then wait to release it until 2 weeks later!) We talk about what we learned in 2019 and lessons we think we will bring forward with us into the future. And Ellie shares the recipe for her Hobo Stew!

  • 001: It Was Extremely Painful

    December 17th, 2019  |  Season 1  |  32 mins 8 secs

    After training super well to hit a 2:41 Marathon, Ellie ran JFK 50 Miler and finished 3rd in a race where the top 3 women were separated by less than 2 minutes. Chris ran the Philadelphia Marathon on "Experience." And we dabble in a brief Food Segment.

  • 000: Introductions - This Show Can't Get Any Better!

    December 14th, 2019  |  Season 1  |  7 mins 40 secs

    Chris and Ellie are two runners who come from different sides of the sport. One of us is a competitive road runner (like 2:41 Olympic Trials Qualifier) and the other of us spends lots of time in the woods. In this new podcast we'll chat about our running, how we feel about it, what it means in the greater context of humanity, and what goodies we are eating!
