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.

When you were 13, what did you get up to?

PlayStation? Football? Hanging out doing nothing with your pals?

In other words, not much.

Well... we bet you weren't breaking marathon world records, were you?

Prepare yourself for a fascinating one, Do-Badder.

In this episode, Jody and David speak to Maureen Wilton, aka "Mighty Moe" whose untold story of how she achieved the incredible feat of breaking the world marathon record when she was just 13 is only now being told.

They're joined by Rachel Swaby, author of the book, Mighty Moe who explains exactly what happened and why the record was never made official... despite being officially recorded.

This really is one to be heard to be believed.
