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.

This episode has a true international feel to it, as Jody and David discuss David's recent trip to Somaliland via Ethiopia...

... during which David won the Somaliland International Marathon.

Among the topics up for discussion on this episode are:

  • David's uber-romantic Valentine's Day gift for Briggsy
  • The unbearable difficulty of getting your hands on a pair of Nike Vaporfly...
  • ... and why David may need surgery to wear his pair
  • Jody gets more excuses in for his Sub4 challenge
  • What David has in common with a 60 year old, a Mongolian man and pretty much everyone else getting a visa at the airport
  • How David ended up going to Somaliland
  • What it's like Hashing in Ethiopia
  • Where David got his Poundland Bad Boy Running vest from
  • David's race strategy for the Somaliland Marathon (or how he reeled them in one-by-one)
  • The incredible winning trophy and goodies David received
  • What it's like to be a celebrity in Somaliland (at least among taxi drivers)
  • Why David now feels equipped to taunt Mo Farah
  • Jody and David shower praise on Lee Stuart-Evans's successful attempt at the 10,000 Calorie Challenge... and challenge the Do-Badders to come up with some more challenges for Lee
