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 attempt (and fail) to be semi-serious in this episode of Bad Boy Running as we discuss our running goals...

... while poking fun at David's dating situation.

Here's how this episode rolls:

  • Jody ruins the internet with some shocking white boy rapping and chooses the rapper who’ll play him in a film (if he’s still alive…)
  • Jody reveals another gender-confused race kerfuffle and David shares his worst/best ever race position
  • David’s explains the ending to last episode’s late dating cliffhanger and shares his top lesson learnt from spectating at Pride.
  • David regales Jody with his running stag do story which involves a rude awakening for a visiting Italian obstacle race champion
  • David admits feeling a bit lost when it comes to his running goals then suddenly reveals he’s part of a TV show on the BBC which he can’t talk about… before spends 5 minutes talking about it.
  • David lays down a massive goal for running the Marathon des Sables while Jody talks up his big challenge for the next 12 months, including cracking his marathon time
  • Jody predicts the success of this podcast will ensure his and David’s place on the celeb start at London Marathon
  • David explains the struggles of a pacer at London and how different it was pacing Jody on an ultra
  • David previews some pacing horror stories - share yours at or #badboyrunning on twitter
