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. 

Mar 18, 2017

Today the guys talk to Colin McCourt, a former pro-athlete who is documenting his transformation back into shape. His friends have all bet him £100 that he can't do a sub-16 minute 5k by the end of this year. If he wins, that's a nice windfall, if he loses, he has to get seventeen first and second names tattooed on his body. 

David and Jody start off with the basic questions about how's training going, whether it's realistic, before, in classic Do-Badder style, they veer off course and end up talking up about how social media could be used by those who are of a higher profile to bring more attention to the sport.
