About Running On Om
The Running On Om (ROO) podcast began in 2013 when Julia Hanlon, creator and host, embarked on a journey to explore connections of the mind, body and spirit. By 2016, Julia had shared 220 compelling conversations featuring innovative minds from a wide range of backgrounds, including authors, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs and yogis. After a pause, from 2019 to 2020, ROO returned with a refined focus: to share stories of women who have committed their lives to endurance sports and the outdoors. Julia is passionate about understanding and sharing how these women live and learn with a connection to their mind, body, and spirit in their respective pursuits. Julia is no longer releasing new ROO episodes, but the podcast still strives to empower, inspire, and uplift all who listen to these powerful stories, all the while elevating the women who share them.
