Welcome Do-badders! This week’s episode is all about KIT! Well. Actually Jody and David do get rather sidetracked. So you could say most of it is about kit. Definitely over 40% anyway…

Coming up!

  • Buffs cause a division in opinion
  • Watches are seen as a must by David
  • Shorts are seen as optional by David
  • Gel packs are portrayed as both a hinderance and a help
  • David reveals how a Dry Robe is not only a great piece of running kit, but also an incredible social tool
  • Jody is reminded of his commitment to the 2017 Winter Nuts Challenge
  • David announces his new (but old) product - the Camel Tow

Once you’re done listening, be sure to join the conversation on the Bad Boy Running Facebook Group where hopefully you can help David completely restructure his business model! If you can't do that then definitely post about:

  1. Your key bits of kit
  2. Your most spectacular kit malfunctions
  3. Kit that you want and need
  4. Kit that doesn't exist

In today’s episode the Bad Boy Runners stray into a new realm of Podcasting by giving actual genuine advice for anyone thinking about doing the Marathon des Sables, and the usual off-topic asides for anyone who isn’t thinking about running it.

  • David begins by pitching other podcasts to Jody
  • A new member of the team is introduced
  • There’s more quality MILF banter to be had (amongst other things)
  • We learn why Jody’s hip has ruined his reputation in the eyes of his family
  • David talks us through why Caesar and Primavera Salads are going to be his go to fuel
  • Jody tries to pry David’s race number out of him so we can overwhelm him with anonymous abuse
  • They discuss some delightful toe nail stories (don’t listen whilst eating)
  • David pitches a new method for recovery for professional athletes (although don’t expect to see this at the next olympics)
  • Jody tells David exactly why his tent mates will finish the week hating him.
  • If you want to know what WWAPD stands for then you’ll want to listen to the end

Once you’re done listening, be sure to join the conversation on the Bad Boy Running Facebook Group where hopefully you can help David find Pato Banton’s contact details or nominate somebody for Bad Boy of the Month.

Part 2 of the charity episode and this one gets controversial.

David explains his theory on the effect of celebrities on charity fundraising and the long-term damage of The Eddie Izzard Effect

Jody reveals exactly what makes a good charity and why he'll never run as a rhino

Part 1 of the Charity episode, all about the things we do raise cash for good (and not so good) causes.

In this episode, the chaps talk charity and David specifically discusses his latest challenge to raise money for Street Child... running the Under Round and trying to beat the record for the fastest time.

Jody admits to no running, no records and no money raised for anything.

  • … and then some bad maths
  • Another call out for sponsors (and this is a real half-hearted attempt)
  • The attention turns to the Color Obstacle Rush UK
  • A discussion of the anger about BBR’s lack of awards nominations
  • Why Tyson Fury would LOVE Edinburgh Marathon
  • Some seriously good Bad Boy performances are revealed… and why David and Jody’s advice WORKS
  • Jody reveals that David has a stalker
  • David argues he doesn’t have serious job titles… and reveals how he manages to spend his time
  • David inadvertently reveals the nickname of his ex-girlfriend… and gets all cryptic (answers on a postcard please) as he goes off on a story about he met her
  • One listener’s attempts at match making with David… and David reveals he’s off the market (allegedly)
  • David reveals his worries about jinxing the relationship by mentioning her in the podcast… oh.
  • The guys reveal what they do on Valentine’s Day… (not with each other, of course)
  • Officially the WORST segue EVER
  • Letters from international Bad Boy Running listeners
  • A call out to US runners as Jody and David make an unashamed play to win over the US running market
  • David tries another Pato Banton impression…
  • A reader question about pacing leaves the guys confused about a race’s pacing strategy… and then fail to work it out
  • A warning about pacers… and why you shouldn’t always trust them (and a clearly made-up stat from David)
  • How to seriously p*** off a Park Run
  • The rise of BBR’s resident veterinary expert
  • A call out for technical experts to edit Bad Boy Running

And, at last, it ends....

The final day of the 12 Days of Bad Boy Christmas.

We're talking abuse received while running.

Yes, it's no longer Christmas. Or 2015. Or even January...

... but it's here. At last.

For the eleventh day, we talk running music and what gets you moving.

And then it descends into farce...

... culminating in possibly the worst attempt at reggae ever recorded.

Worth listening if only to hear that.

"I didn't expect THAT!"

Today's episode focuses on that wonderful moment we all run our first race. Yes, the newbie race experience and all those things about it no-one ever told you.

Please note, in this episode we discuss the Running Awards... which are now out of date as Bad Boy Running wasn't put into the final (we're going with a conspiracy theory).

SO, PLEASE DON'T TRY TO VOTE - IT WON'T WORK!

Anyway, it's been left in almost as a historical artefact, a memory of what might have been.

In this episode:

  • The chaps discuss children’s TV presenters (no, not 1970s ones...)
  • Jody explains the concerns he has about the running club
  • David reveals another enemy of his who is trying to overcharge him for his running club

  • Why David’s sponsors LOVE watching him getting his arse kicked
  • Announcing the global search for a solution to David’s ankle
  • David announces he’s running the Afghanistan Marathon and reveals he know NOTHING about what’s going to happen
  • David lets listeners know what he looks for in a night out (not safe listening)
  • Jody belatedly explains Bad Boy Running’s intentions to win the Running Awards… and David comes up with a plan which involves us dressing up
  • [PLEASE DON’T VOTE - NOMINATIONS HAVE CLOSED]
  • David and Jody FINALLY get round to talking about the subject
  • A reader asks a brilliant question
  • Why you should NEVER shout out David’s name in a race
  • Jody discusses the Nipple Situation and the scourge of bad race photos
  • David explains how he felt sea sick running Berlin and his newbie strategy for dropping out of races so he wouldn’t have to carry on
  • Jody explains why he turns into Gollum on a long race
  • What are your first race experiences and war stories? What went hideously wrong? What didn’t you expect? Let us know via letters@badboyrunning.com or join the discussion on the Facebook group - details below.
