The Aussie Runner Podcast covers the Australian running scene via trail, road and track. If you love running as much as we do, then join us on your next run as we talk to real Aussie runners and learn about all the things that make running great.
Presented by Damon Roberts & Jeremy Francis.
TEMPO : Joe Ward
Neil & Geoff chat to Brisbane to Sydney Ultra-runner, Aussie rep, coach, feral pig whisperer, C2K podium hopeful & founder of the Manly Beach Running Club, Joe Ward. The boys learn why Joe chose to run 1000km in silence, how he has a coach for almost everything he does, how to tackle your inner running scientist, mongrel & hippy, micro-dosing your training & why hiking/walking is a must for those tackling ultras.
Jez & Damo speak to Olympian & Aussie steeplechase star Genevieve Gregson, covering her recent heartbreaking injury in Japan, her recovery, how her upbringing has helped, why steeplechase is nerve wracking, scary and running hierarchy wise sits above ‘flat’ track runners, sharing a stage with Kylie in Glasgow, her new coaching business with husband Ryan and finally what’s the number one (or two ;-)) thing that she would give up an Olympic medal for?
Tempo : Liam Adams
Neil & Geoff talk to Aussie mara running’s people’s champ, true blue battler & Olympian, Liam Adams … the full time electrician non-professional elite runner that still manages 160-200km per week. You’ll hear how the Olympics in Japan compared to Brazil, his journey from junior x-country to the world stage, how he manages the work / elite balance & insight in to how drug testing influences his life. What could he achieve if he was able to go fully pro, sub 2:10? … new Aussie record? … we think
Damo & Jez talk to gent & legend of Aussie running, Shaun Creighton. A man with such an amazing range to his running talent, holding national records for the 5km, 10k & marathon, representing his country at multiple Olympics & Commonwealth games, holds the Aussie record for the 3000m steeplechase, Aussie selector, broke a marathon age record that stood for 32 years & finally, possibly the only man to finish a 2:10 mara with a hand down his pants for the last 2km #knobchaffe ;-)
TEMPO : Jye Edwards
Geoff & Neil speak to recent Olympian Jye “Zoolander” Edwards, find out how this Aussie 1500m speedster came back from injury through recovery, less volume & sticking to soft surfaces (i.e trail running Jez). Also learn how a social media blackout helped him perform at the Olympics, how 100km+ weeks are required for a 1500m athlete and which shoe colour is faster: black, white or hot pink?
Jez & Damo grab some time with Harry Potter mad Olympian & marathon star Ellie Pashley, what a lovely engaging representative for Australian sport … the boys catch Ellie mid way through her hotel quarantine following her superb run in Japan, they go deep in to her Olympic experience … find out how she used ice jackets, saline drinks, Powerade slushies & ice baths to ace her performance in the heat, no surprise she got to the start line shivering & with brain freeze! :-)
