    27. Ian Arnold @ianrunsldn - “you do you!” Devoted Father, Dedicated Runner Story of transformation

    27. Ian Arnold @ianrunsldn - “you do you!” Devoted Father, Dedicated Runner Story of transformation

    Ian Arnold, aka @ianrunsldn is a Runner, a Father and an SDruncrew (Sports Direct Running) He is also a Jaybird ambassador. He is a dedicated runner and devoted father, he is a brilliant character - so personable and easy to talk to. He is full of wisdom, and not afraid to speak up. 
    Ian was a swimmer when he was younger, and played football, until he left sport and exercise behind and preferred to drink and party.. Ian nowadays though has transformed himself and his life. He was incredibly fortunate to obtain a London Marathon Ballot place in the 2016 event, this was Ian's first Ballot attempt, and his first Marathon experience. 
    Ian's reasons for running are big, and the affect he has upon his young daughter are credit to him as a person, and his dedication to his running, and wellbeing. He is a not only a devoted father, boyfriend, and dedicated runner but he works hard and manages to juggle Marathon Training with family and life and work, and the reason he is able to do so is down to his incredible resilience and epic self-determination and of course his purpose and his Why's. 
    He has some Big goals this year, which he tells us a little of... 

    What else to expect:
    Why and How Running has changed Ian’s life
    Ian’s Reason to run and his #WhyIRun
    Ian’s very controversial (to runners) stance on Sleep and Routine
    How Ian’s active lifestyle started but then fell at they wayside until he later discovered running
    Why Ian opts to self-coach
    Why we shouldn’t let a bad run consume us
    Do’s and Don’t to Marathon Training

    26. James Shoulder @shoulder_runner - Talented runner, self-motivated, 3:18 Marathoner. "You're the only one who can create your own (true) happiness"

    26. James Shoulder @shoulder_runner - Talented runner, self-motivated, 3:18 Marathoner. "You're the only one who can create your own (true) happiness"

    James started running four years ago when he started getting into the gym to improve fitness, and keep in shape. Inspired by his friend, who was training for a Marathon - he signed up for his first Marathon just six months into running and went on to Run London Marathon in 2016.

    James has run 6 marathons to date, and he tells us in this episode what works for him in Marathon Training, including the do’s and don’t’s to Marathon Training, and Race Day. We talk about his progress in the Marathon, and his ability to be self-motivated and the goals he has set himself. We talk about the importance to enjoying life, and not taking training too seriously, and how brilliantly inclusive Park Run is - and why we ought to get down to a Park Run. Mental Health and well-being is a strong topic in this chat, and James reminds us how we are the only one truly responsible for our own happiness.

    James, not only is he a talented runner - but a brilliant character, he is charismatic, hilariously funny, and has a heart of gold - this is a fun episode, not to be missed!

    25. Jon Flynn - aka @this_man_runs : Running Home For Christmas - Raising Money for those with limited food and shelter

    Jon, who is a previous guest of the Podcast (episode 5) is back to catch us up with his recent escapades. It includes much running, gym-going, and a crazy challenge.

    Jon will be "Running Home for Christmas" - he will be completing a Running Advent Challenge. Running 1 mile on December 1st, 2 miles on December 2nd, until 25 miles on 25th December. The total mileage for the challenge will be a total of 325 miles. He will need to complete 12 days of 13+ miles, 5 days of 20+ miles. He will see his highest weekly mileage double! The challenge is epic, and he is raising money for a worthwhile cause: Trinity Winchester in Jon's local area, where they support and address the affects of homelessness to offer solutions, hope and choices.

    Take a listen to some of Jon's brilliant escapades during these past few months, including a near miss with an electric fence, wheelie bin Wednesdays, Wiggle Wednesdays, cross trainer hacks, attempting home made world records. There's much nonsense to keep you entertained in the busy build up to Christmas. So relax, enjoy and make sure to support Jon.

    24. Liz Warner - Run to Reach. A Woman on a Mission. 30 Marathons before 30 raising money for local charities globally - Supporting & Empowering Women. "Say yes to a crazy idea!"

    24. Liz Warner - Run to Reach. A Woman on a Mission. 30 Marathons before 30 raising money for local charities globally - Supporting & Empowering Women. "Say yes to a crazy idea!"

    Today's guest is Liz Warner, a 29 year old woman with a major mission. Liz has challenged herself to complete 30 Marathons before she turns 30 in June 2020, but not only that - she created this mission: Run to Reach. Running the Marathons in different locations across the World and raising money for local charities, supporting women-focussed NGO's in each of the countries. In her words she's "Helping locally by running globally."

    Liz does not class herself as  fast runner, and her purpose and her #WhyIRun is far more profound than chasing times and PB's, striving for calm: for a peaceful flow of mind, Liz states "it's far more than putting one foot in front of the other."

    By the end of the mission Liz will have completed marathons in 30 different locations including Western Sahara, Guatemala, Mongolia, Sierra Leone, Chile, and Antarctica,

    When Liz Thought up this idea and challenge - she was on her honeymoon, and hoped to continue working freelance to fit in with the project. Liz has since had to take time out of work as the mission has required her time and dedication. Despite completing 14 Marathons this year and travelling across the world, and to some remote and less developed countries and areas of the world, the hardest and most demanding part of the project for Liz has been the administrative side of this mission; the work required to liaising with all 20 different NGO's and organising flights, accommodation and everything that goes with the logistics required to support this mission and make it possible.

    If you aren’t convinced yet to support Liz and her mission and her goal of raising $100,000 - then please listen to Liz’ story;  what motivates and inspires her. Towards the end of the show I ask her for three pieces of advice to give to others to take away in life - something that we should all listen to. And remember you can say YES to a crazy idea, you will never know where it may take you in life.

    23. Cari Brown @therunninglifeofcari - "Running to keep the crazy at bay" - Marathon Runner

    23. Cari Brown @therunninglifeofcari - "Running to keep the crazy at bay" - Marathon Runner

    Cari started running 23 years ago, when she was 10 years old. It has played a massive part of her life, with just few interims away from running. Cari started running Track and after a a period away from running she rediscovered the sport and specifically road running in her twenties. Cari had a long-time goal to complete a Marathon before her 30th Birthday. One month away from her 29th she reminded herself of this goal, and got training.

    Cari is a great example of when - sometimes we need to alter our daily and weekly schedule slightly in order to juggle everything swapping her morning/evening runs to lunchtime runs. 

    Cari tells us she is stubborn and self-motivated, She explains just how she achieved a massive PB of 13 minutes in the Marathon this year at London Marathon, achieving a time of 3:01. Like most episodes, Cari shares with us the do’s and don’t’s to Marathon Training, and her top tips to getting started with running as well as her #WhyIrun.

Awesome Podcast

I have been following Matt for most of the year and was impressed with his perseverance. I had been meaning to listen to the podcast for a while.
Glad I did. It was awesome. Natalie really asked good questions and let Matt speak.
I plan to listen to more of NotAnotherRunner as I continue to grow.

Great motivation

I think this podcast really good and interesting. I’ve been running a few months very faithfully but have really enjoyed it and even finished well in a half marathon far sooner then I dreamed possible.I like that the host more talks about the experience and intangibles about running and not the wonky mechanics of it (Not very interesting to me) I know it will always be just a escape hobby, but she makes that ok and motivating for everyone with all sorts of goals.
