    Episode 27 – Harry Morgan

    What an exciting show this week as I got to speak to the wonderful creator and host of the JogOn podcast, Harry Morgan. Harry and I first met over a year ago when he invited me onto his show as a guest. Now the tables are turned and Harry reveals all about his introduction to running from his earliest childhood memories, to captaining the Portsmouth University Atheltic team, and all about his races and future plans to aim for some of his father’s PBs. We also shared some experiences around the podcasting which was great fun to speak about. Harry had a great story about how he got into the podcasting arena and specifically, the podcast around the running. My co-host Dave Harvey and I also reveal a few details about the upcoming changes to the Portsmouth Running podcast too, but you’ll have to listen to find out more. Enjoy the show everyone xxx

    Episode 26 – Davina Glading

    On this weeks show Dave and I catch up in our introduction about his crewing at the NDW100 along with his upcoming Centurion race. I give an update on our Shipwrights Way FKT attempt which was an interesting day out. I also interview Portsmouth Joggers membership secretary, Davina Glading and it was really interesting finding out about how about the start of her running journey. Davina has done many races and is a member of the 100 half marathon club. Davina and her family have also set up a really interesting relationship with an athletics club in South Africa where they take running clothing and shoes to help support runners in their training and racing. This was a great chat and I enjoyed every minute. I hope you do too! As always, happy miles all xx

    Episode 25 – Russ Bestley

    Episode 25 – Russ Bestley

    On this weeks show I got to speak with the Portsmouth running legend Russ Bestley. Russ’s running journey started back in 1975 and is filled with many really interesting stories and experiences. Russ competed at a very high level in race walking in his early days, and eventually through a series of moves, career changes and health challenges ended up in Portsmouth running with Pompey Joggers and taking part in many long ultra distance races, and still does to this day. Russ is a member of the 100 marathon club as well and has clocked up some great times at the marathon, half marathon and 10k – 10 mile distances too. We chatted about so much, including the Cardiac Athletes Support Network which he was involved in helping set up. This story is one that covers the importance of the support runners get from everyone around them, but not only crews and coaches, but family, friends and many others. Enjoy the show and as always, happy miles everyone! xx

    Episode 24 – David Poole

    Episode 24 – David Poole

    On this weeks show I finally got to speak to runner Dave Poole from Portsmouth. Dave has had a remarkably fast introduction into the world of long distance which started in just 2015 when he decided to run a half marathon, along with a bunch of marathons to raise money for the Epilepsy Society which was a charity very close to his heart. It really seemed like he just immediately found and regained the love for the running, especially the long distance because within a matter of just a couple of years or less, Dave was well into the world or long distance running. Enjoy the podcast as it dives into a few of Dave’s races and reasons for running, including a chat about club life and how running can be a tricky thing to juggle in terms of time with a family. We also cover some interesting races including the UTMB CCC and the Golden Ultra in Canada which Dave has run. As always everyone, happy miles! xx

    Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce the release of the next episode of the podcast, and this time I got to speak to the lovely local runner, Anna Smith-James. Anna has been running for about seven years and has completed all the major marathons and earned herself the six star medal for doing so! Don’t know what that is? Listen to the show as it was an awesome running chat discussing lots of great topics from strength and conditioning, to social media and blogging, to travelling all over the world to complete the marathon majors. Anna was an awesome guest to have on and I can highly recommend following her running journey on Twitter (@AnnaTheApple88) and Instagram (@annatheappleblog) and also her blog which you’ll find at: https://www.annatheapple.com/







    Enjoy the show everyone, and as always, wishing you happy miles! xx

    Episode 22 – Tony Conway

    Episode 22 – Tony Conway

    Pleased this episode to be joined by one of the group leaders for Portsmouth Joggers, Tony Conway. Tony is a big character in the running community here in Portsmouth. I’ve had the pleasure of not only being welcomed by Tony before at club nights, but also to run with him a few times, where I found his incrediby mindful of his surroundings and being aware about the enjoyment of running – something many of us can forget from time to time. Tony is very close to achieving his 100th marathon race and is looking forward to getting over the finish line of that one as soon as possible. It was great to find out from Tony how he got into running, which is what the show is all about. Another fantastic story and shared experiences that I hope you will all enjoy….x
