Running is BS

#35 - Showers are Bullshit

March 23, 2020
Amy massively overreacts to a single comment about her audio and has taken a drastic solution to improve the ‘studio’.
 
We inevitably drop the C-bomb as the world of running is now dominated by the reaction to COVID-19 and its impacts, as well as post-run showers, brambles, fancy teas, and fell races that haven’t been cancelled.
 
We also ask very important questions such as “Would you wear a manbra” and “Is it ok to just go and run a strava segment?”… See more

A last minute stand in for Amy sees SBC rock the mic with Stewart for this episode full of all kinds of running bullshit.

There's sweary banter galore with chafing, race cancellations, filthy puns, and making noises at gross out comments. 

We have bonus double guestage with London Marathon pacer Liz Ayres giving us a rundown of the changes being made to this year's race and Howard Owen's review of his, understandably, slowest ever marathon in Siberia.

Stewart and Amy (and a yappy Corgi) take on the biggest and most important topics in running (probably) in yet another episode of the podcast that loves to hate running.

We talk about being ill, boobs, race tshirts, and speak to a former international high jumper and coach who only bloody went to the Olympics, Sharon Heveran.

February 10, 2020

The podcast that loves to hate running delves into the murky world of shoes, and the whole Nike debacle. Watch out, Stu has read, like, two articles and now has Opinions.

We also talk about why you shouldn't use Eventbrite for races, how far breasts bounce, and the best way to kill time during a quarantine.

This episode is dedicated to Cactus. He was a very good boi.

It's Cross Country time, so we've spoken to Maud Hodson about Run Equal, a fantastic campaign that wants men and women to run the same distance. It doesn't sound like a lot to ask does it? You'd be surprised at the bullshit they encounter...

This episode's Bullshit Running News theme is like nothing you've ever heard before (by which we mean good), and that's all thanks to our awesome Patreon subscribers. Why not give us a dollar? If you want a buff, this is the place to go.

January 13, 2020

The running podcast with the worst running hosts is back, and who better to dish out the advice than someone who's been injured for 2 years and someone who doesn't run?

In this episode, we insult New Zealanders, talk about dog shit, and endlessly scream into the void about 'burning off those Christmas calories'.

‘Women have less ego. Men think: How hard can this be?’: the female ultra-athletes leading the field.

 

This episode is sponsored by Angela Foster-Swailes, Ben Timpson, Elizabeth Rees, Francis Snoding, Harry Bryant, Huw Phillips, Jay, John Welch, Jonathan Carter, Kris Whitmore, M Jones, Matt Caffyn, Matt Garner, Nicky Genders, Richard Skyrme, Rob Smith, and Steph Hall - THANK YOU!

December 30, 2019

Our yearly review of the year, and you guessed it, it was bullshit.

Naturally, we bring you more exciting tea updates, and talk about Amy's ludicrously cute puppy Finley and how much he shits and has ruined her life.

We talk about our new year's resolutions (don't hold your breath), and recap the Bullshit Running News that caught our eye during the year.

AND there's a new way to support Running is Bullshit - Patreon.

Well Amy hasn't been running, but that's no longer a big deal as Stu can't stop racing for some reason.

We have double guest action with Gary Damer and Dean Smith from Behind the Medal podcast, who definitely love running and swearing more than us! 

We give you top dogging tips, and all we ask in return is your opinion on what Bullshit Tea should taste like. It makes more sense if you listen rather than reading this tbh...

Another episode, another week where Amy hasn't run, but don't worry you won't be disappointed by the reason.

Our guest is Kerrie Aldridge, one of the pack of the back runners at the 2019 London Marathon who were so mistreated. We find how she got started and why she's going back to London. You can also find out more about her amazing charity work here: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

The best three weekly podcast that loves to hate running is back.

There's the usual amount of bullshit, and somewhat inevitably, actual shit to discuss. We talk about American race fees, the 'Great' Runs and arbitrary scoring systems.

Stu had so much to complain about he forgot to mention the extremely minor barbwire injury he got while trail running, but hopefully now you've read this and know about it.
