    Episode 58 - Steve Bullock

    Episode 58 - Steve Bullock

    I am super happy to announce Episode 58 with the one and only Steve Bullock, or @grasshopper_gteve as many know him on social media. Steve tells us all about his weekly sessions and gives an awesome background to his own running story, training and qualifications. For those who know Steve I am sure you will enjoy this episode and for those who don't, perhaps see you at a Grasshopper track session soon .... 👍

    Dave and I catch up, in person for the very first time! This gave us a weird new dynamic to work with as we actually had to face each other while recording for a change. We were both sweaty messes from our workout too.

    As always everyone - thank you for listening to and enjoying these free shows! Happy running .... x

    Episode 57 - Daniel & Dave Race Catchup

    Episode 57 - Daniel & Dave Race Catchup

    On this episode Daniel and Dave spend time catching up on the previous races that they have taken part in. Dave tells us all about his Hardmoors 200 experience walking away from the event with 100 epic miles along the stunning trails up north. And Daniel goes into some details, perhaps sometimes sharing a bit too much, about his long awaited finish at the 2022 Grand Union Canal Race, finishing 145 miles in central London.

    Dave is also fresh back from Glastonbury so gives us a little insight into what the weekend was like there too. Our show this week begins with a short interview from a runner who came through Southsea last week by the name of Paul Minter. He is running the entire coast of the UK and was 2500 miles into this run when he approached our city. Daniel took some time with Paul and some of his friends to help steer them towards Gunwarf where he was stopping for the night. What an epic challenge!

    As always everyone, thank you for listening and do get in touch with us if you'd like to share a story or running tale.

    Episode 56 - BFit with Billie

    Episode 56 - BFit with Billie

    On episode 56 we explore the wonderful world of outdoor personal training with local business owner and PT Billie-Leigh Roberts, founder and owner of BFit with Billie. Billie is a runner herself and enjoys taking part in Southsea parkrun when she's not busy training her clients outside. One of my reasons for asking Billie if she would be kind enough to join us on the show, is that Portsmouth has a lot of fantastic open space and park type areas which are just perfect for this type of activity and business. We believe that it adds to this amazing healthy lifestyle feel that the city has with people using the seafront area more frequently. We are seeing a splurge in people turning to healthy lifestyle living and using social training sessions like PT classes and running events like parkrun and Great Run Local and it really is a wonderful thing. Enjoy the show where Billie tells all about the business and her own background about how it all got started.

    And as a bonus, Dave and I begin with our own introduction about pre race woes and motivation, as we both head towards a big race over the coming weeks.

    Episode 54 - Daniel & Dave Catchup

    Episode 54 - Daniel & Dave Catchup

    On this episode of the Portsmouth Running Podcast, Daniel and Dave bring you the latest running chit chat, involving Dave's latest marathon and half marathon escapades and results, including a nice result too for Daniel at the last Blended Trails race. Due to illness, holidays and such things, we have not got a special guest on the show for this week and so we fill the gaps on this show.

    Daniel and Dave also invite listeners to get involved and try something different - sea dunks! That's right! We've been getting into the water in Southsea each morning and have found out that there seem to be some physical benefits that compliment all the training quite nicely. As always, thank you for listening and enjoying our content. Enjoy the sunny weather and happy miles everyone! x

    Episode 53 - Emma Cardey (Southsea Parkrun)

    Episode 53 - Emma Cardey (Southsea Parkrun)

    Hello all! Welcome to Episode 53 of the show, where we give a warm welcome to Emma Cardey. Emma is the Event Director at Southsea parkrun and Dave and I natter with Emma all about the event and wonderful team who help put this run together for us all each week. We had a lot of questions for Emma about the challenges of looking after such an event, but on the flip side, the fantastic results and benefits that the community down here gain from such a 5k run. 

    Dave and I start our show introduction this week with a completely blank slate and no agenda, so also tune in to hear us waffle on a bit about the new highway code rules (which we both knew nothing about!). 

    As always, thanks for listening everyone and wishing you all very happy miles! x
