The Wild Dog Pod

Hosted by Abby Heffern; ultrarunner, weightlifter, powerlifter, swimmer, and coach/owner of Wild Dog Athletics, The Wild Dog Pod serves to inspire through story sharing. Our roots are in athletics, but we hope to bring you guests from a variety of backgrounds with a diverse range of experiences. We hope that each episode will offer you nuggets of inspiration, new ideas and perspectives, and maybe even send you down a path you never knew existed.
