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.

In today’s episode the Bad Boy Runners stray into a new realm of Podcasting by giving actual genuine advice for anyone thinking about doing the Marathon des Sables, and the usual off-topic asides for anyone who isn’t thinking about running it.

  • David begins by pitching other podcasts to Jody
  • A new member of the team is introduced
  • There’s more quality MILF banter to be had (amongst other things)
  • We learn why Jody’s hip has ruined his reputation in the eyes of his family
  • David talks us through why Caesar and Primavera Salads are going to be his go to fuel
  • Jody tries to pry David’s race number out of him so we can overwhelm him with anonymous abuse
  • They discuss some delightful toe nail stories (don’t listen whilst eating)
  • David pitches a new method for recovery for professional athletes (although don’t expect to see this at the next olympics)
  • Jody tells David exactly why his tent mates will finish the week hating him.
  • If you want to know what WWAPD stands for then you’ll want to listen to the end

Once you’re done listening, be sure to join the conversation on the Bad Boy Running Facebook Group where hopefully you can help David find Pato Banton’s contact details or nominate somebody for Bad Boy of the Month.

If you have any further MdS advice then be sure to post it in the group and get involved!
