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.

Grit, strength, determination and ignorance...

... all qualities we admire and are essential when running your first marathon.

But what if you ran your first marathon without ANY training at NIGHT and with a SIX HOUR cut-off (oh, and you'd been drinking all day...)?

Sounds ridiculous, right?

Well, that's exactly what Ian McNamara did and his story of losing a bet and running his first marathon on no training made it to the pages of UNILAD.

Here's the story, if you didn't see it: https://www.unilad.co.uk/video/guy-completes-entire-marathon-without-training-as-punishment-for-losing-fantasy-football/

We'll level with you. Ian is a hero for our times, and we discover just how ridiculous this challenge was (and how funny) during the chat.

Enjoy!
