For Christmas, Jody and David sing out their 12 Days of Bad Boy Christmas... and it's very different from the original.

 

There's no let up in the disgusting subjects and today's is about how to spit when running.

Caution advised....

... it's a full-on gob and snotfest that you'll only find funny if you're a toddler or a Do-Badder.

If Jody and David have ANY listeners left after this, they'll be lucky....

Here’s Part II of the Race Preparation episode.

(To be honest, we could have squeezed it all into one much-shorter episode if we didn’t keep going off on tangents… but then that’s exactly what OTHER running podcasts would do, isn’t it?)

In the second half we discover:

  • Why you STILL shouldn’t have broccoli in the morning before the race
  • David reveals his three-stop toilet strategy…. and the one tablet you need to take before your race
  • The hydration technique that ensures you don’t need to keep weeing during the race
  • David says expresso, not espresso…. expresso
  • David’s counterintuitive anti-superstitious approach to race preparation
  • Jody and David officially do the WORST Arnie accents
  • David admits to talking to himself… and talking to himself like a proper twat
  • The Ultimate Playlist idea to raise money and have the best music playlist of all time for your race
  • Jody’s super-cold compression tights nightmare
  • An interesting drinking game that involves pants… not best played with David
  • The stretching question. Not answered.
  • David shows off his Classics knowledge and fails
  • Jody suggests a new challenge for David and tries to rope the listeners in
  • Jody and David talk about The Running Awards and their experience last year
  • David scuppers his chances writing for any major running blogs by slating most of them

In Part I of this special two-parter on Race Preparation, we discuss how to set yourself up for your best race ever… or at least not totally crash and burn.

There’s some attempt to offer running advice in this episode. Clocking in at an hour and 40 minutes total run time, it would have to happen at some point on the balance of probability.

Is it useful? Who knows…

Here’s what Part I looks like:

  • Jody and David demonstrate again why they shouldn’t have sponsors
  • David explains the beauty of our latest sponsor (if you’ve heard of them, answers on a postcard please)
  • David happens to mention that he’s won TWO races
  • David makes another damaging revelation of something he’s SCARED of (we’ll be using this later…)
  • Why you should always check which race your competitors are running
  • David reveals he doesn’t actually know where the last race he won was
  • David can’t hide his disappointment at feeling terrible after winning his races… (wtf?!)
  • David’s date from the first podcast gets in touch
  • The weekly check-in for David’s Plenty of Fish account… it’s barren
  • ALERT! ALERT! Both Jody and David feel shame after reading a recent Runner’s World article… (this is disgusting)
  • Why Jody and David need to UP the filth factor just to stay in business
  • David reveals EXACTLY what he does with beetroot for a week before the marathon
  • Why David often reverts to being a 90s A-level student on his races
  • Jody’s marathon-long run-in with coconut water

Hallelujah, it's here. Jody finally makes the leap and goes to a running club... but was joining the right thing to do...?

If you've not already done it please cast your vote for Bad Boy Running at The Running Awards 2016 (www.therunningawards.com) - you'll find us in the Online & Publication/Online Community section. Thanks!

Now what were we talking about again...?

  • David rues the quality of modern dance music (while inadvertently undermining his case by admitting he thinks The Prodigy are good)

  • The Bad Boy Running Podcast receives what is possibly the most accurate (but in another way wholly inaccurate) review so far

  • The podcast hits a landmark… by officially saying something helpful to someone as one listener reveals
  • David reveals a terrible devious side to himself in a discussion about shoes
  • Michael Jackson is mentioned (needless to say you’re only hearing a small snippet of the actual, now deleted, conversation)
  • The guys give a definitive guide to being a Bad Boy

It's a tough subject, but someone's gotta talk about it... yes, those dreaded three letters.

D. N. F.

Did Not Finish.

In this episode we talk all things DNF as we introduce the first (and possibly last) ever Bad Boy Running guest, ultra-athlete Stefanie Bishop.

Here's what we got up to: 

  • Jody confesses to doing something he’s never done before… and David shows absolutely no sympathy towards him (honestly, not a word of support)
  • The chaps drop the bombshell that the actually have a guest… introducing the incredible extreme racing champion and Death Race veteran Stefanie Bishop
  • Stefanie explains her experience of running the first winter Death Race, shooting 9mms and tackling Olympic wrestlers… as well as the slightly lacking ‘motivational’ speeches by the organiser to help you through it
  • Stefanie ponders which is more difficult: sat in a cold pond for hours with hypothermia or drinking 4 litres of milk?
  • Stefanie reveals the quality of the reward for completing Death Races (honestly, it’s worth spending hours in a pond with hypothermia for…)
  • David recalls the first time he met Stef at a race… and it wasn’t pretty (for a very good reason)
  • Why Stef had to be forced to DNF and why less clothes is often better (or not, as we discover)
  • Stef reveals the frankly RIDICULOUS amount of time she spent trying to overcome one obstalce during a race (no, really you won’t believe this)
  • David accidentally reveals the names of two people in a relationship no-one is supposed to know about
  • ALERT, ALERT… a genuinely good idea actually features on the show!
  • David decides to end the podcast episode on a particular awkward question for Stef

If you were a fan of David from his Special Forces appearance, then this may be the episode that changes your opinion of him... (he goes into dark territory here.. only kidding!).

In this episode, we're talking about elitism in running and whether some competitions need to be more elitist to actually mean anything.

(Oh, and the Jody joining a running club saga continues to rumble on...)

Here's some of the japery you can expect:

  • Jody rolls out a new load of excuses and reveals the pitiful amount of running he’s done and cleverly tries to shift the blame for his lethargy by accusing David of being a poor motivator.
  • Jody rolls out a new load of excuses and reveals the pitiful amount of running he’s done and cleverly tries to shift the blame for his lethargy by accusing David of being a poor motivator.

  • Jody does a minimal amount of running and explains why he hasn’t been able to handle “the hilliest Parkrun in Sussex”.

  • David recounts his first race for ages and inadvertently qualifies for the World Championships

  • David explains why he’s not 100% convinced that’s he’s the best of the best of the best and why he won’t be going to the World Championships

  • Jody and David are rude about Ohio… for no real reason.

  • David tells a story about a friend who is inexplicably annoyed about a guy who invented a racket sport (the name of which David can’t remember) and has his own World Championships in that racket sport.

  • David asks the question - are the OCR World Championships elitist enough? (And alienates half the audience…)

  • Jody gets his Woody Allen mixed up with his Groucho Marx

  • 19:21 The point at which David loses friends and immediately offends Jody

  • Jody challenges David on the point of OCR and questions him on Tough Mudder

  • David uses the word ‘Strava’ again.

  • David goes all Socialist railing against Capitalist race organisers… but finally admits to being a dick.

  • David imagines tearing up the nightlife of Ohio and reiterates he really doesn’t like show-offs

  • Jody tells a story about testicles and running the Brighton Marathon

  • The guys set a challenge to the listeners… and continue to say the word ‘balls’ repeatedly

  • Why Jody is positively encouraging hate mail as a result of this episode and why Bad Boy Running is most definitely trans-gender... or something like that.

Why do you race? That’s the question Jody and David are tackling this episode as they veer into banging on about whatever it is that helps them run.

WARNING! This episode contains some actual information about running… please don’t hold it against them.

Here’s some of the delightful highlights:

  • Jody talks about completing his 30 day bodyweight challenge… and lets slip a revealing admission about his mum and karate
  • David talks about his ankle…. again and makes the strangest comparison between running and playing the violin
  • An inspirational message to all the non-runners who’ve persisted in listening to Bad Boy Running thus far
  • David thinks about getting an Iron Man tattoo and explains how he earned/scammed a rare Tough Mudder headband
  • The duo question the point of race t-shirts and badly explain Comrades Marathon
  • Why MDS 1st Brit Danny Kendal is better at dancing and writing theme tunes than David (probably)
  • At some point it gets quite philosophical and some actual advice is shared around the 25 minute mark - just skip this if it feels out of keeping with previous content

It’s already Episode 5 and in this episode we’re pondering the question of the worst things you can do before running a marathon.

Some of the things we talk about include:

  • The many reasons why Jody STILL hasn’t joined a running club
  • What the point of those terrible clickbait running listicle features are
  • A list of the worst things you can possibly do before trying to run a marathon (our suggestions are quite frankly ludicrous…)
  • Why David claims to be the slowest person to have run a 2.45 marathon… (or at least explains what the hell he’s talking about when he makes such a claim)
  • Jody getting annoyed at David’s constant mentions of beetroot and demanding an explanation

 Bad Boy Running Episode 1 Part 2

Continuing from Episode 1, Part 2 kicks off following Jody's revelation about how running Brighton Marathon with only 90 minutes notice was hands-down his worst marathon experience. Now it's David's turn to reveal his worst race experience.

The action continues…

  • 01:05 David confesses to being about to tell a really bad joke… but then in revealing it, still manages to cause offence without gaining any benefit
  • 02:29 David explains his worst race… without being able to name neither the race nor the start and end points of the race.
  • 03:40 Why, as a race organiser, it’s not a great idea to get a bunch of squaddies on your bad side (things go from bad to worse)
  • 04:28 David accidentally reveals the starting location… and pleads to have it bleeped out of the episode (we didn’t, of course)
  • 07:00 David explains the moment when the relay team hit breaking point, how the organiser failed to pick up on the mutiny in his midst (despite everything that went wrong) and how he’s avoided saying “yes” ever again
  • 11:29 Jody accuses David of neglecting his responsibility to the listeners… and David agrees
  • 11:58 The moment we realise Bad Boy Running was a terrible name choice for the podcast (and we beg you to think of the podcast as gender neutral)
  • 12:36 Where we open it up to you to let us know what your worst race was… and the kind of stuff we’re looking for
  • 13:26 David reveals the incredibly “high tech” way you can give your opinion and feedback on the show and reads out letters from non-existent listeners
  • 14:48 In a confusing twist, Jody reveals where he gets his hair cut (and how he shares his salon with a very important local figure)
  • 15:45 Why you may want to revisit this episode if we ever make it to Episode 150 (we’re being a touch hopeful here)
  • 16:08 David recklessly invents an email address and asks listeners to send their feedback, possibly prompting an avalanche of spam to an unsuspecting individual (If your name is Mr BadBoyRunning, watch out…)
  • 17:09 Why you need to use the #BadBoyRunning hashtag on twitter
  • 18:12 David has a sudden realisation that transforms the podcast recording into a romantic drama
  • 18:57 What happens next? The episode ends on a cliffhanger…

  • 00:42 David’s GCSE Music grade C skills come to the fore when he unveils Bad Boy Running’s inaugural theme tune, while Jody’s anticipation of the theme tune almost gets to him
  • 01:52 David unveils the Bad Boy Running Podcast theme tune… to much fanfare (and bemusement)
  • 03:05 Why Bad Boy Running is just like Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and why Jody and David have a special message for those people listening in from the future
  • 03:34 The purpose and title of the podcast is questioned when after three and a half minutes,  “running” is only mentioned for the second time
  • 04:08 David explains the idea behind Bad Boy Running… and then starts making wild, unsubstantiated claims about our running knowledge and expertise
  • 06:00 Why you may want to tune out right now if your primary aim was to learn something about running…
  • 06:15 Jody (badly) introduces David
  • 08:26 David introduces Jody (much better)
  • 10:53 Jody explains how he first met David
  • 11:13 Why Jody has been christened the Karl Pilkington of the running press
  • 12:07 Jody explains his personal experience of the Sierra Leone Marathon including his “rustic” hotel and why he forced to hand over his race winnings… for a bucket of water.
  • 17:05 Jody reveals the worst race he’s ever run (it’s not so much the race, but the lack of preparation beforehand that made it an ordeal…)
  • 18:33 Why it’s impossible to offer Jody a race and say no… and an irresistible offer for listeners to put him to the test

And thus, it ends for now.

Download or listen to Episode 1 Part 2 to hear David’s worst race experience and experience once of the best endings to a podcast episode… EVER.

Bad Boy Running Episode 0

 

Now this is a super-short introductory episode to the Bad Boy Running Podcast.

David and Jody spend less than 5 minutes explaining why the Bad Boy Running Podcast is different from all your usual running and marathon podcasts and how you’ll benefit from subscribing and listening.

They also preview the kind of high brow, pseudo-intellectual musings you can look forward to hearing in the future… ahem.

If you can’t even be bothered to listen to that, here it is in a nutshell:  

Bad Boy Running is a nowhere-near professional but funny podcast during which we (occasionally) talk about running.

If you take running a bit too seriously, you may want to steer clear.

Go on, give it a quick listen.
