The podcast that loves to hate running. 🏃 = 💩
#88 - Mountains are B******t with Nicki Lygo
New name for Amy but the same old b******t.
The newly-dubbed ACG and Stewart get into some wedding chat, banana anger, dog interruptions, a noble DNF, manky feet, some of the most bizarre shoes we've ever seen, horses being put in their place, and the fact that you don't fuck with mountains.
Our guest Dr Nicki Lygo has crewed for John Kelly and Damian Hall on their incredible Pennine Way FKT runs, and has had a terrible time walking it herself so who better to tell us all about the art of the run crew, along with a delicious recipe for an ultra trifle.
#87 - Orienteering is B******t with Clare Dallimore
We're tired, so tired. Stewart is because he can't stop racing and Amy is because it's 3pm and she hasn't had a nap.
Our guest Clare tells us all about orienteering and why you should give it a bash.
We also discuss many bodily fluids, injuries, Neher's Law, more infuriating research, and the Fyre Festival of trail runs.
#86 - Horses are B******t
Apologies to all the horsey people, but horsey people we are not.
Stu is still doing ALL the races and Amy is still doing NONE of the races as we discuss 'oh shit pace', running dates, an utter lack of sympathy for our fellow runners, and why did it have to be snakes?
#85 - Mansplaining is B******t
Sigh, another ultra, whatever, no one cares anymore.
Saturday races may or may not be terrible, failed runs definitely are, mansplaining also is. We hear a chilling anxiety dream come to life, bruised souls, and we finish on a story that will make you run a bit slower due to nausea. Not sorry.
#84 - Running Films are B******t, part 3
We return to the world of Hollywood, or rather the world of Christian straight-to-Youtube and Indian cinema for more spoiler filled reviews of running films: Remember the Goal and Budhia Singh - Born to Run.
Some classic early ranting, dog chat, banana fury, awkward running, mansplaining, and the absolute worst food to be given at an ultra.
