    Yahya Pandor

    Yahya Pandor

    Today's incredible guest Yahya Pandor is running The Manchester Marathon 2024 and is attempting to set a record as The First Blind Runner to run without a Guide Runner.
    Yahya is amazing, and his story is remarkable. After losing his sight to a variation of macular degeneration, he decided to have more good days than bad days and leant into the positive side of life. On the side of his day job, he started making TikTok videos together with his brother Isa, to show people what having a vision impairment is like, and has since become an inspiration online.
    The RunPod RunClub wants to wish Yahya the best of luck with the Marathon - he's going to kill it!

    Daniel Fairbrother - FRIDGE MAN!

    Daniel Fairbrother - FRIDGE MAN!

    You don't get a better friend than today's incredible RunPod guest, Daniel Fairbrother.
    Daniel's best friend Sam has Type 1 Diabetes, so to raise money for Diabetes UK Daniel is attempting to break the world record for "the fastest marathon while carrying a household appliance".
    This is where we introduce you to 'Tallulah' the name he's given to the Fridge which he's strapping on his back and running The London Marathon with!
    Named after his favourite film 'Cool Runnings', Tallulah has caused quite the media surge so we had to get her in the studio - even if security were suspicious!
    Daniel started running after his divorce, as a way to find balance and clear away his stress.
    It's had a huge positive impact on his health, and Daniel believes that running is 70% about mentality and 30% about physicality. If anyone is going to get you running today, it's a guy with a fridge tied to his back. Think he needs to carry a cold beer in there for the finish line!

Best thing to listen to on your run!

Jenni has a lovely, happy interview style and brings out the same positivity in her guests, who are often inspiring figures in the running world. She has a genuine love of running and a passion for spreading the word about what running can do for people, mentally, socially and physically. I love listening while I’m running, as it usually makes the time go faster and makes me go that bit further. If I listen without intending to run...I usually find myself lacing up my shoes within a few minutes. Thank you!

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!

My favorite 5k challenge

This is, by far, my favorite 5k challenge! It’s fun to run and laugh and have the encouragement from Faisal and Jenni! I’m so grateful for them because they helped reignite my love of running!
