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. 

Dec 24, 2015

Warning! If you've not listened to another Bad Boy Running Podcast before, probably best not to start with this one... everything in this relates to other episodes.

Wondered what had happened to all those challenges Jody and David set in the earlier episodes?


Oh, well... you're going to hate this episode then as we catch-up on everything they've been up to, including:

  • David reveals two (completely irrelevant to running) dating stories which reveal too much about David
  • The first Bad Boy of the Month awards is handed out to an absolute star of a story.
  • Jody and David react to their first ever one-star review (shocking purely because it took so long)
  • Jody and David then react to NOT making the finals of The Running Awards and call on Anonymous to help them
  • Oddly, the conversation veers onto who would play Jody and David in a movie about themselves...
  • ... then the chaps discuss the first EVER Bad Boy Running Pubcrawl on Monday 28 January 2015.
  • And the accompanying Virtual Run (no SERIOUSLY!)
  • David gives an update on his Kenyan friend Boaz, who despite talking with him is still not convinced he’s a real person
  • David reveals exactly what he’s done to get Jody into the ultramarathon theatre film… mainly consisting of lying about Jody’s acting credentials
  • In a question from a listener, when is it acceptable to return the runner’s nod and how do you do it without looking dodgy?
  • We re-open the DNF debate… and listeners give their feedback
  • David realises his ‘humble’ approach may have made him more enemies
  • Jody suggests using the Mourinho approach to winning races and not “looking like a cock”
  • The guys veer into talking about the Marathon des Sables (again) and somehow end up attacking IronMan competitors (again)
  • A general call out for more stupid challenges and feedback in the Facebook group
