The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as the technical.

Why do you race? That’s the question Jody and David are tackling this episode as they veer into banging on about whatever it is that helps them run.

WARNING! This episode contains some actual information about running… please don’t hold it against them.

Here’s some of the delightful highlights:

  • Jody talks about completing his 30 day bodyweight challenge… and lets slip a revealing admission about his mum and karate
  • David talks about his ankle…. again and makes the strangest comparison between running and playing the violin
  • An inspirational message to all the non-runners who’ve persisted in listening to Bad Boy Running thus far
  • David thinks about getting an Iron Man tattoo and explains how he earned/scammed a rare Tough Mudder headband
  • The duo question the point of race t-shirts and badly explain Comrades Marathon
  • Why MDS 1st Brit Danny Kendal is better at dancing and writing theme tunes than David (probably)
  • At some point it gets quite philosophical and some actual advice is shared around the 25 minute mark - just skip this if it feels out of keeping with previous content

It’s already Episode 5 and in this episode we’re pondering the question of the worst things you can do before running a marathon.

Some of the things we talk about include:

  • The many reasons why Jody STILL hasn’t joined a running club
  • What the point of those terrible clickbait running listicle features are
  • A list of the worst things you can possibly do before trying to run a marathon (our suggestions are quite frankly ludicrous…)
  • Why David claims to be the slowest person to have run a 2.45 marathon… (or at least explains what the hell he’s talking about when he makes such a claim)
  • Jody getting annoyed at David’s constant mentions of beetroot and demanding an explanation

If you want to join the discussion head on over to Facebook and search Bad Boy Running Podcast and apply to join the private Facebook Group where we randomly put images and videos of ourselves suffering/being made fools of.
