My good friend Ally Brettnacher is on the podcast today!
I’ve known Ally since the early days as a young professional in Indianapolis. She is a huge part of the running community in Indianapolis and is on the board at the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon.
Ally is the founder of Athlete Bouquets, which are unique gifts for runners that are filled with runner goodies. These are just the best gifts for holidays, birthdays, and post-race gifts for runners! She partners with a lot of other women-owned small businesses with this! I loved hearing about her journey to starting that business in this episode!
Ally hosts the podcast called Finish Lines and Milestones. I’m excited that she has taken the plunge into podcasting!
She’s completed 55 half marathons and 7 marathons. She just ran a half marathon PR about two years after having her second baby! I was lucky enough to give her a hug post race there! We talk all about that in this episode about running faster post baby even when she believed her PR days may be over!
