    Ep 295 - How to run 95 marathons back-to-back with Alyssa Clark

    Ep 295 - How to run 95 marathons back-to-back with Alyssa Clark

    Most people chose to do something sedate during lockdown.

    Baking bread. Growing vegetables. Learning to paint.

    Not Alyssa Clark.

    She kicked off with a plan to run a few marathons back to back... and ended up running 95 marathons before we was stopped in her tracks by, yes you guessed it, COVID.

    In this episode, Jody and David speak with Alyssa to discover why she did it,  the pressure of doing it - even outside of COVID - and whether she'd do it again.

    Ep 291 - Dean Karnazes on A Runner's High

    Dean is back with BBR for his THIRD time, under the auspices of talking about his latest book, A Runner's High.

    However, Jody and David quickly derail talk of all things literary when they get Dean talking about the unbearable fear of DNFing and why some people lose their bottle in races, how Dean hates the cold,  his latest adventure running a relay across Australia and, importantly, bronzing your shoes.

    And everyone tries to get to the bottom of why David is conducting this interview holding a spoon (answers on a postcard listeners/viewers).

So good !

When I need cheering up after a long day, I always love to listen to BBoys. The reggae is a bonus. Keep up the good humour and bring back Ali and more ladies to contribute to the show !

The perfect run buddy

Been 6000 miles away from home this lighthearted podcast filled with good old British humor is the perfect running companion. With a good selection of guests that are asked the questions you actually want to know the answer to and topics engaging enough to keep you coming back for more #FYB

Y’all make me laugh

As a back of the pack runner with my share of DFLs and DNFs, I find this podcast relatable. Love the British sense of humor!
