  • hi dj Peter canellis!

    I just needed to pass along some praise for your podcast running to the beat. I know it's been a while since an episode has been released but I feel like I know you. Your podcasts have been my running partner since I started running back in 2012. The mixes are just simply a work of art and I love how inspiring the music is! I truly transform out on the pavement while being guided by your mixes. It's like I turn into a higher being and it's all thanks to you and putting your art out there for the world to be blessed by. I know this sounds a bit over the top but I truly mean every word. My occupation by day is a music therapist and many times I have considered your podcast along with the physical act of running my own form of music therapy. Thank you!! I'd love to hear more or maybe even collaborate. Who knows?! Just knew this praise and gratitude was way overdue. Thanks for being awesome. Liz

  • “I’ve been running for about a year now and just found your music via GotRadio and this is the best thing since sliced bread. I get lost in the music and I can truly just run and run and run. Keep it up!”
