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.

It's a tough subject, but someone's gotta talk about it... yes, those dreaded three letters.

D. N. F.

Did Not Finish.

In this episode, Jody and David talk all things DNF as they introduce the first (and possibly last) ever Bad Boy Running guest, ultra-athlete Stefanie Bishop.

Here's what we got up to: 

  • Jody confesses to doing something he’s never done before… and David shows absolutely no sympathy towards him (honestly, not a word of support)
  • The chaps drop the bombshell that the actually have a guest… introducing the incredible extreme racing champion and Death Race veteran Stefanie Bishop
  • Stefanie explains her experience of running the first winter Death Race, shooting 9mms and tackling Olympic wrestlers… as well as the slightly lacking ‘motivational’ speeches by the organiser to help you through it
  • Stefanie ponders which is more difficult: sat in a cold pond for hours with hypothermia or drinking 4 litres of milk?
  • Stefanie reveals the quality of the reward for completing Death Races (honestly, it’s worth spending hours in a pond with hypothermia for…)
  • David recalls the first time he met Stef at a race… and it wasn’t pretty (for a very good reason)
  • Why Stef had to be forced to DNF and why less clothes is often better (or not, as we discover)
  • Stef reveals the frankly RIDICULOUS amount of time she spent trying to overcome one obstacle during a race (no, really you won’t believe this)
  • David accidentally reveals the names of two people in a relationship no-one is supposed to know about
  • ALERT, ALERT… a genuinely good idea actually features on the show!
  • David decides to end the podcast episode on a particularly awkward question for Stef
