The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) 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. 

Feb 19, 2016

We're talking ultramarathon running as David attempts his first (even with his 'broken' ankle). 

Here's what's up for discussion: 

  • BBR ponders a possible all-French episode (pour un moment)
  • The guys reveal the first ever race to receive the Bad Boy Seal of Approval (hint: it's not Edinburgh)
  • Why Jody hates half marathons
  • David reveals his 80s action hero upbringing and explains his alter-ego movie star heritage
  • Jody explains why fitness writers events are very different from other writers' events
  • Some serious discussion about threshold running and getting it right
  • David signs up to run his first proper ultra and wants some advice
  • Jody reveals his theory of distance and why running a 'short' ultra and running a marathon are the same (kind of)
  • Why David's choice is a BAD first ultra...
  • The big 'what kit to take' debate (and another dig at Edinburgh Marathon)
  • The No.1 reason to run an ultra (according to Jody)
  • The unbearable boredom of running 24 hour ultra races on a running track
  • The guys explain how much sponsorship has been offered to the podcast
  • Jody explains he's as old as David now
  • And much more...
