    Being initiated into the Runpod run club this week is author, presenter and fellow podcaster Katie Piper!
    Katie talks us through her running journey, how she ran away from unhealthy coping mechanisms (literally), building up to running a half marathon and finding a new love for it. Katie tells us how running has become almost a form of therapy for her, never failing to help her in unexpected ways, whether it’s improving her confidence or just giving her the space to work things out in her head.
    An incredibly worthwhile and inspiring listen, you’ll be reaching for your trainers after this, that’s for sure!

    Ollie Ollerton

    In this gathering of the RunPod Run Club, Jenni chats with someone who is former Special Forces and one of the stars of SAS: Who Dares Wins...Ollie Ollerton.
    Warning: You will absolutely be desperate to get out for a run after hearing this highly inspiring episode.
    Ollie very openly discusses a life-defining near-death experience at the age of just 10, resisting his ‘break point’ in the SAS selection process, as well as why running is so important to his mental health now.
    A fascinating listen, with a man who is one of the tough guys on the telly. But as you’ll see, he’s actually got a very nice side too that will definitely motivate you to get off the sofa!

    Paula Radcliffe MBE

    Joining Jenni on this episode of RunPod is someone whose name is synonymous with running. She’s run countless marathons and she held the Women’s World Marathon Record for 16 years. Oh yes, it’s Paula Radcliffe MBE!

    Even though Paula has now retired from official racing, she has by no means stopped running, it very much plays a part of her life and the reasons are entirely relatable. She opens up on what running means to her now, why she loves it so much, whether (or maybe when) she’d run the London Marathon again and shares some brilliant top tips to keep you going if you’re heading out soon.
    A hugely inspiring listen. Happy running!

    Happy Global Running Day!

    Happy Global Running Day!

    Today is Global Running Day and RunPod couldn’t claim to be the Run Club of the podcast world if we didn’t acknowledge such an event!
    So this is just a reminder why you run, or why you should run. Perhaps it’ll spur you to pop your trainers on and get out there. If there’s one day to pound the pavement, to have a go for the first time or to remind yourself about that amazing feelgood effect running has, then today’s the day!

One of my favorites

Jenni has an excellent interview style. She’s so upbeat and the questions she poses to those she interviews are always great. Very positive podcast and I always walk away feeling better than I did before listening. Good positive motivator to keep on running!
