Whether you're a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon runner or ultramarathon runner, you'll find something in here to be offended by. Bad Boy Guarantee.

Jody and David turn their attention to running clubs and the pros and cons of joining one. But in case you thought it was getting too serious, there’s also chat about Pokemon, Stormtroopers and booty sculpting… Here’s what went down in this episode: How a children’s TV star of yesteryear is officially faster than Jody over marathon distance David takes his inspiration from a famous band for his rendition of the theme tune… not that you’ll ever be able to tell who David wonders why his ankle isn’t getting better after running on its for 15 miles and then drops a bombshell about his dating situation (it’s not good news… although that doesn’t stop Jody having a good laugh about it).

Ep 5 - Should Jody join a running club?

Ep 6 - What makes a race great?

Here's what goes down in this episode: David liberally dishes out his plentyoffish.com nickname for any interested ladies David ponders the similarities between Jody and Graham Norton David makes the outlandish claims he’s strained his ankle in his sleep Jody’s pressured into filming a viral video to promote the podcast What makes a great race, not a good race, a GREAT race The guys extol the virtues of London Marathon and why you should make it your first marathon David ruins his chances of ever being a London pacer again with a damaging admission Why David’s favourite race is one you’ve probably never heard of Why you need to beware of Dutch men in coaches David explains why you should never do a great race two years in a row Why you shouldn’t dress as a member of the Ku Klux Klan on a race David reveals the best race you can’t enter with an eye-watering £8,000 entry free and Jody gets really confused at his explanation of what happens during the race… (and you will too) David unashamedly plugs one of his running products Jody and David use the word ‘unbelievable’ a few too many times Jody’s put off the running club experience.

Why do you race? That’s the question Jody and David are tackling this episode as they veer into banging on about whatever it is that helps them run. WARNING! This episode contains some actual information about running… please don’t hold it against them. Here’s some of the delightful highlights: Jody talks about completing his 30 day bodyweight challenge… and lets slip a revealing admission about his mum and karate David talks about his ankle…. again and makes the strangest comparison between running and playing the violin An inspirational message to all the non-runners who’ve persisted in listening to Bad Boy Running thus far David thinks about getting an Iron Man tattoo and explains how he earned/scammed a rare Tough Mudder headband The duo question the point of race t-shirts and badly explainComrades Marathon Why MDS 1st Brit Danny Kendal is better at dancing and writing theme tunes than David (probably) At some point it gets quite philosophical and some actual advice is shared around the 25 minute mark - just skip this if it feels out of keeping with previous content Enjoy!

Ep 4 - What are your running goals?

Ep 5 - Should Jody join a running club?

Jody and David turn their attention to running clubs and the pros and cons of joining one. But in case you thought it was getting too serious, there’s also chat about Pokemon, Stormtroopers and booty sculpting… Here’s what went down in this episode: How a children’s TV star of yesteryear is officially faster than Jody over marathon distance David takes his inspiration from a famous band for his rendition of the theme tune… not that you’ll ever be able to tell who David wonders why his ankle isn’t getting better after running on its for 15 miles and then drops a bombshell about his dating situation (it’s not good news… although that doesn’t stop Jody having a good laugh about it). David gives out his dating profile... women everywhere shrug their shoulders Jody makes some pathetic excuses and jumps into an exciting new exercise routine that may or may not be for guys David makes a terrible suggestion for a fitness video for listeners Jody reveals his cunning strategy to run100 miles… by not running long distances Jody does what he never thought he’d ever considerand David effectively calls him ahipster Jody gives his uncensored, irrational opinion about running clubs (and David try to talk him down) David puts up a sterling defence for running clubs and explains why he likes it rigid David totally belittles Jody’s marathon best with a story about his ex then almost talks Jody out of joining a running club Why Tynebridge Harriers is the best running club to model, according to David Jody reveals his reluctance to wear running gadgets (even though he used to review…) Why David loves a good Sunday run after going on the lash the night before David explains how he likes to unload all his most boring chat on his running buddies and accidentally reveals his favourite topic of conversation David asks members of Jody’s local running club to abuse him or kill him with kindness Jody reveals the first official comment and ask David to explain a story about running Stormtroopers David tells the story about how a runner dressed as a Stormtrooper destroyed a local running hero David asks listeners for their views on running clubs at letters@badboyrunning.com Enjoy!

Ep 5 - Should Jody join a running club?

Ep 6 - What makes a race great?

Here's what goes down in this episode: David liberally dishes out his plentyoffish.com nickname for any interested ladies David ponders the similarities between Jody and Graham Norton David makes the outlandish claims he’s strained his ankle in his sleep Jody’s pressured into filming a viral video to promote the podcast What makes a great race, not a good race, a GREAT race The guys extol the virtues of London Marathon and why you should make it your first marathon David ruins his chances of ever being a London pacer again with a damaging admission Why David’s favourite race is one you’ve probably never heard of Why you need to beware of Dutch men in coaches David explains why you should never do a great race two years in a row Why you shouldn’t dress as a member of the Ku Klux Klan on a race David reveals the best race you can’t enter with an eye-watering £8,000 entry free and Jody gets really confused at his explanation of what happens during the race… (and you will too) David unashamedly plugs one of his running products Jody and David use the word ‘unbelievable’ a few too many times Jody’s put off the running club experience. Again. Why we’ll only interview AWESOME people - let us know the subjects you want us to talk about at letters@badboyrunning.com Enjoy!

Ep 7 - David goes Special Forces Hell Week

Ep 8 - The worst things to do before a marathon

Ep 9 - David talks about leaving Special Forces Hell Week

Ep 10 - What motivates us to run?

Why do you race? That’s the question Jody and David are tackling this episode as they veer into banging on about whatever it is that helps them run. WARNING! This episode contains some actual information about running… please don’t hold it against them. Here’s some of the delightful highlights: Jody talks about completing his 30 day bodyweight challenge… and lets slip a revealing admission about his mum and karate David talks about his ankle…. again and makes the strangest comparison between running and playing the violin An inspirational message to all the non-runners who’ve persisted in listening to Bad Boy Running thus far David thinks about getting an Iron Man tattoo and explains how he earned/scammed a rare Tough Mudder headband The duo question the point of race t-shirts and badly explainComrades Marathon Why MDS 1st Brit Danny Kendal is better at dancing and writing theme tunes than David (probably) At some point it gets quite philosophical and some actual advice is shared around the 25 minute mark - just skip this if it feels out of keeping with previous content Enjoy!
