Excellent review of the Spine
Having just completed the spine myself this was a brilliant episode. My head is in the same space as James in that I will never do it again! Really interesting to hear Matt (5 time finisher) and Damien (4 time finisher, winning this year) talk about what gets them going back year after year. James and Dan have a great sense of humour and work well together. Awesome.
Utterly interesting even though it’s just two blokes chewing the fat . Love it and wish they would do more , shame they too busy running . Probably my favourite podcast
Great listen. Both informative and amusing. Excellent banter between the hosts who clearly love running, respect each other, and don’t take their impressive achievements too seriously. About to have a crack at a 250km and have found this a brilliant listen
