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.

David has been to film (but not partake in) the OCR World Championships. They offer their opinions and it would appear that David's elitism has begun to deteriorate.

Jody talks about why it's hard to compare Ultra Running with OCR and has an idea to discuss at the end about a possible BBR spin off.

Here's the second part of the BBR interview with Rat Race's Jim Mee. If you've not listened to the first part, go back and listen first otherwise this ain't going to make much sense...

It's been promised for LOOOOONNNNNGGG time, but here it is at last, the lads' interview with Rat Race founder Jim Mee.

Jody and David dive into the world of Rat Race

  • The guys speak to Jim about the state of OCR and why so many races are disappearing - and what seems to be taken their place
  • Jim looks back at some of the crazier events (a few of which he hinted may be resurrected...)
  • David comes up with some suggestions for the headline act at Rat Race Dirty Weekend (and accidentally reveals the actual act)
  • Jim explains exactly why he feels the need to get naked at every race
  • and they preview the forthcoming Edinburgh Ultra (you know, a race with Edinburgh in the name that is actually based in Edinburgh - take note, Edinburgh Marathon)

We've got an epic two-parter with OCR World Champ and Skyrunner, Jonathan Albon.

Before the guys speak to Jon, David recalls his experience of this year's Marathon du Medoc, reveals a challenge by Monkey Tennis podcast, talks "easter eggs" and reveals why he has a beer named after him.

Then the guys speak with Jon Albon (interview starts on 42 minutes, if you want to skip ahead like Fi Silk...)

In this episode, Jon reveals:

  • How he got started running and his crazy-good first ever race (you won't believe his first ever race time)
  • How he progressed in the sport and became involved in OCR and then Skyrunning
  • His 30 second sleep trick at that infamous Winter Nuts
  • How he preps for races and how he trains away from running
  • ... and his exact stats (so you can compare and contrast... and weep)

Listen to this episodes and you'll get a glimpse into the mind of a serious competitor and champion (... so it's a pretty big contrast from Jody and David's ramblings)

Oh, and make sure you listen to Part 2.

David Harvey talks us through how he lost a load of weight thanks to running. His main goal was to run the Western States 100 and, after a drunken night out, he woke up to find that he'd entered it unknowingly. After waving goodbye to the entrance fee, he got to training and tells us all about his preparation and his experience of actually running the race.

Did sitting in a sauna help? Was lying in a river a waste of time? Is Jody going to run it? Most of those questions are answered in this podcast.
