    A “Good Causes” special with Chrissie Wellington OBE, made possible by The National Lottery.

    A “Good Causes” special with Chrissie Wellington OBE, made possible by The National Lottery.

    In today's episode Amy interviews Chrissie Wellington OBE, former professional triathlete, four time world IronMan Champion and now Head of Global Wellbeing at the National Lottery-supported parkrun. Whilst Chrissie remains the world record holder for Ironman distance (completing it in an incredible 8 hours 18 minutes!) she now devotes her life to improving individual and population health and wellbeing, specifically by getting people involved in physical activity. Together Chrissie and Amy compare top parkrun stores, discussing the diverse and welcoming nature of these free events and the many benefits it can bring to individuals and the community. We'll also hear how, thanks to The National Lottery Players, parkrun has received £3.6million of funding over the past 8 years, which has been ground breaking in its success. Chrissie believes it's this support of grassroots organisations, the ones that remove the barriers to exercise, that is so key for our emotional and physical health, but it's also key to a healthier future for our children. Together Amy and Chrissie cover Chrissie's remarkable road to sporting prowess and how she's carried these lessons into her family and work life now, and some of her top tips for getting involved... the key is starting somewhere, it doesn't have to be big and bold!

Amazing Running Podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast! I’m a PT and ran track in college - I was more of a sprinter than a distance runner, but I’ve run my fair share of 5Ks and 8Ks for fun. Now that I’m dead bored in the quarantine, and getting married in 4 months😍I need a new goal to keep me sane! I’ve decided to train for a half marathon, found this podcast and feeling so inspired. While I know plenty about performance and movement, I so appreciate the tips and tricks in this podcast many of which are little things that could only be learned by years of experience and mistakes. This podcast is certainly making my first attempt fun, enjoyable and exciting - thank you Amy!!!

Love it!

Love this podcast! Idk how I found it exactly...was just looking for something to listen to while running and turns out I listened to them all at home or driving because they were so good! Now that’s I’m caught up I wait for Sundays(Saturdays for me since I’m in the US) but I look really forward to it! It’s very informative and relatable! I just ran my first half marathon and getting my inspiration for a full!
