Running is BS

#79 - Wind is Bullshit

February 21, 2022

Amy and Stewart are at the age where they're complaining to the council about lampposts and bins. It happens to us all.

Loosely running related topics also include shit gyms, calf freshness, which part of someone would you eat first, grotesquely drawn running tribes and dog shit. Also, uh, can we have you liver?

We have an actual announcement to make about our favourite tea brewers, Bird & Blend Tea! Check out runningisBS.com/tea

#78 - Flashing is Bullshit with Sabrina Pace-Humphreys

#78 - Flashing is Bullshit with Sabrina Pace-Humphreys

February 7, 2022

Sabrina Pace-Humphrey from Black Trail Runners is our guest and she's so good she might have actually inspired us, even though inspiration is exactly what we've been trying to avoid all this time.

We also talk about more weird races, more weird marketing, snot rags and nip tips.

#77 - Falling Over is Bullshit

#77 - Falling Over is Bullshit

January 24, 2022

We're tired, oh so tired... Weirdly, it's because we've been running a lot recently.

We ignore your advice, talk about a bitch that ruined our walk, complain about fell races, talk about the best and worst format to start a race, and speculate on the Hollywood career Stu could have had.

#76 - Personal Trainers are Bullshit

#76 - Personal Trainers are Bullshit

January 10, 2022

Apologies to any personal trainers, but if you're telling us not to run, we're not going to listen...

Our first episode of 2022 is back in typical style with a discussion about shitting yourself, being injured by a dog and running too many races.

We've got more listener injuries, more bullshit marketing and Stu has even bought some race photos!

#75 - Race Photos are Bullshit

#75 - Race Photos are Bullshit

November 8, 2021

It seems race photos are a hot topic and everyone has an opinion! But are they bullshit or not. The answer is, inevitably, more complicated than that.

We speculate on better sponsors for the London marathon based purely on how fun they are to say, Amy doesn't run an ultra, we read our favourite email ever, mock some shoes and talk about poo.

Oh, and Stu ran a marathon.

#74 - Recording Live is Bullshit

#74 - Recording Live is Bullshit

October 18, 2021

Recorded in front of a live studio (cafe) audience in Cardiff!

We speak to Rhys Jenkins, Jimmy Watkins, and Dr Nicky Genders about running the length of the UK, running sober, and not running at all. There's the usual references to dogs and tea, and the audience were even kind enough to laugh occasionally. 

Amy apparently doesn't know the difference between any of our listeners and Stewart has done maths.

#73 - Prostate Cancer is Bullshit with Tim Beynon

#73 - Prostate Cancer is Bullshit with Tim Beynon

October 4, 2021

Our guest Tim has written a book about his experience with prostate cancer, and we ask him weird questions that he didn't expect, but eventually find our way back to the subject at hand!

Recording on the day of the London marathon inspires us to half-watch it on TV and potentially reconsider the virtual race, but still not actually make us want to to enter it.

Stewart has done a stupid race and has a secret weapon up his sleeve, or in his shorts. Amy hurts and is seriously questioning her life decisions. There are dog interruptions, but not the ones we'd usually expect.

#72 - Toenails are Bullshit with Matt O‘Keefe

#72 - Toenails are Bullshit with Matt O‘Keefe

September 20, 2021

We speak to the man who finished third in the infamous Dragon's Back Race about how annoyingly good at running he is.

Amy literally can't stop entering races and Stewart just keeps writing stupid songs.

Don't forget our live show on October 15th 2021 in Cardiff, and tickets are free so please book now!

#71 - Feet are Bullshit

#71 - Feet are Bullshit

September 6, 2021

Amy did an ultra.

Stewart did an ultra.

We talk about those ultras.

ALSO we announce our live show on October 15th 2021 in Cardiff, and tickets are free so please book now!

Congratulations to Alan Burrell for being the worst looking listener who graces the cover photo for this episode.

#70 - Long Runs are Bullshit

#70 - Long Runs are Bullshit

August 16, 2021

We did another long run together, so there's plenty of standard long run and training chat.

Stu has an illness or an injury or both, and Amy uses the phrases "gym journey" with an entirely straight face. We also talk about periods again, Olympic marathon stuff and how to trick runners into being slow.
