The best podcasts I’m listening to right now – a list of my favorites in each category and a lil bit about them.  I’m answering a super important but maybe tmi running question – do you wear underwear under running shorts / tights?  And finally the awards this week are HUGE!!


In case you’re new here…

I’m Monica and I created Run Eat Repeat.com to share 2 huge goals  – run 1 full marathon, lose 20 pounds. Since then I’ve run 30 full marathons, 50 halfs, 900 donuts and now Run Eat Repeat is a huge community online and now this podcast. I’m happy you’re here!


Warm Up: 

– I’m going to a knife skills class tonight! I’ll let you know if I chop off a finger! Maybe I’ll raffle it off…

– I just listened to Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. It was amazing!

I turned on YouTube before my long run this weekend and randomly a talk by a doctor that was on Mt. Everest the season Krakaur was where a lot of people died was talking about crisis response. Since they mentioned the book I downloaded it and immediately started to listen to it on the run. I was done in a few days. Yeah! Good books and running!!

I have an Audible subscription so I listened to it – but it’s available the old fashioned way too.


– I’ve been getting questions about the Pile on the Miles for this year. Yes! I’m going to do it again in November but I’m thinking about options for check-ins and considering doing a Run Bet.

Run Bet – you bet $40 on yourself that you’ll run a set amount of times. It’s usually 4 days a week for 30 minutes.

Would you be interested?

What would be a good goal for you?


My favorite Trader Joe’s Pumpkin seasonal foods that are healthy. List up now!


Running Gear Question:

Hi Monica,

I’d like to remain anonymous because, maybe everyone already knows the answer to this but…what do you/people wear under their running shorts/tights? I just listened to your “best running shorts” podcast and wondered. Commando? Thong? If so, which ones? Thanks for letting me ask this slightly embarrassing question.


Take the Instagram Poll to chime in if you wear underwear while running!

>>> Instagram polls are in my Instagram Stories = you have to click on my bio pic in IG and that will take you to my stories. They’re only available for 24 hours so check it out before they’re gone!

If you want to wear underwear while you workout try a pair that’s made specifically to wear under running tights, shorts or yoga pants.

Workout / Running Underwear:

Under Armour Pure Stretch Thong (I’ve heard good reviews of these)

Adidas Seamless Thong Underwear

My Favorite Podcasts

Best Running / Fitness Podcasts:

My favorite running podcasts right now are

1. Another Mother Runner the podcast – mix of interviews with runners, race tips & recaps, training Q&A and more.

2. Endurance Planet – I’m kinda new to this one so far it’s 2 guys answering listener running, triathlon, nutrition… questions. They have mentioned a female co-host though so I think it’s co-ed sometimes. The male hosts both sound experienced and educated on running and training.

Other running podcasts in my list…

The Running Lifestyle podcast – I used to listen to this one a lot and just lost it in my usual rotation. I think it’s cute and helpful. I like that the host is big on emotional psychology.

DizRuns – He was on the RER podcast and is super fun!

Get Fit Guy – love this style of short episodes packed with research based advice. Each episode is on one specific tip or question.

The Run to the Top podcast – I used to listen to this when Tina Muir was the host. She has another podcast now – Running for Real podcast! I just haven’t updated my podcast list to listen yet.
