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 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.
