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.

It's a catch-up episode with Jody and David and, for once, they're talking about running.


In this episode you'll learn:

  • Why Mike Bushell is clearly playing for laughs at the Commonwealth Games
  • How BBR have managed to end up at the Running Awards again (and still with no sign of a trophy...)
  • David reveals another romantic gesture from an old flame that went horribly wrong when the lady in question failed to understand his esoteric reference
  • Jody explains his Sub4 failure at Brighton Marathon and why it's better to run a 4:40 than a 4:01
  • A full list of all the things Jody got wrong on his marathon...
  • ... and the one thing he got right (i.e. the location)
  • What is absolutely amazing about being a Do-Badder
  • An introduction to a race you may not have heard of before... that begins with M and ends in "onarch's Way"
  • Why BBR is the best community on the internet (seriously, guys and ladies, we LOVE you...)
  • David talks through his Arran Ultra experience and his surprisingly hard second day racing
  • The boggy joy that one Do-Badder founds themselves stuck in
  • How David managed to get Caffeine Bullet promotion in despite racing

Sorry, Fi. There's no Silk Cut in this episode - it's just Jody and David.
