    This week joining the RunPod run club is someone who loves her fitness, Michelle Heaton.
    The last year has been particularly challenging for Michelle, as she revealed she’s been battling alcohol addiction and that she needed to seek professional help.
    She did get help and is now almost 9 months sober. This also means that she’s been able to get back to running which is something she has always loved.
    In this episode Michelle shares her experiences of running and how important something as simple as going for a run or heading to the gym are key in her recovery.
    She shares her story in the hope that anyone else in a similar situation can see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
    Jenni and Michelle also discuss the impact of early menopause on fitness and how you can tailor your workout for your body.
    It’s a hugely inspiring episode and also there are some great tips and suggestions for you if you’re out pounding the pavement while you listen.
    Happy running!

    Hannah Beecham

    Returning to RunPod, is CEO and Founder of RED January, Hannah Beecham.
    Hannah set up Red January seven years ago to motivate us all to get up off the sofa and keep active in the darkest, coldest month of the year with the aim of doing something active every single day for the first 31 days of the year. Unless you have incredible willpower, I am sure that you may well have over indulged on festive feel-good. In that case, you might need that extra push to get up off the sofa and get back on track for the new year and this episode is exactly what you need!
    Jenni and Hannah talk about how this initiative is a brilliant way to get Britain moving again - and how it can help ease you into 2022 feeling positive, fresh full of purpose and feeling amazing. Listen and I guarantee by the end, you will want to sign up to Red January and get out running!

My running buddy

I love listening to this! I get so into the conversation that I forget about how hard it is to run! 😂 it’s my running buddy but without me having to find breath to talk back 😂
It motivates me to go for a run if I know I’ve got episodes to listen to!
Thank you jenni!
please Keep doing them 🙏

Love this podcast

Love the range of guests - from amateur, new runners to seasoned pros. Quick fire question ‘Why Do You Run?” always motivates me as the answers are never to do with fitness or weight loss. All to do with feeling amazing. Thank you Jenni!

Lockdown listening essentials

Listened to the Will Goodge episode last night and really powerful episode. Thank you both.

James Smith + Runpod = another great episode. Very positive and good tips.

Runpod episodes have been great accompaniment to long walks and runs through lockdown. Thanks Jenni
