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.

We've got an epic two-parter with OCR World Champ and Skyrunner, Jonathan Albon.

Before the guys speak to Jon, David recalls his experience of this year's Marathon du Medoc, reveals a challenge by Monkey Tennis podcast, talks "easter eggs" and reveals why he has a beer named after him.

Then the guys speak with Jon Albon (interview starts on 42 minutes, if you want to skip ahead like Fi Silk...)

In this episode, Jon reveals:

  • How he got started running and his crazy-good first ever race (you won't believe his first ever race time)
  • How he progressed in the sport and became involved in OCR and then Skyrunning
  • His 30 second sleep trick at that infamous Winter Nuts
  • How he preps for races and how he trains away from running
  • ... and his exact stats (so you can compare and contrast... and weep)

Listen to this episodes and you'll get a glimpse into the mind of a serious competitor and champion (... so it's a pretty big contrast from Jody and David's ramblings)

Oh, and make sure you listen to Part 2.
