ROT #26 Shoes

March 9, 2021

It's coming up on Spring and what better way to put a spring in your step than to get a new pair of shoes. Or several new pairs. But we know how baffling it can be trying to work out which pair is best for you, so in this episode we break down the different elements of a running shoe and talk about what does, and doesn't, work for us.  And we're (sort of) sorry for the awful punning...

ROT #22 Crewing an ultra - The Arc of Attrition

June 25, 2020

In Jan 2020 we travelled to Cornwall for the Arc of Attrition. Thane was running, Antony was crewing and so we thought this was an opportunity to talk about an ultra from the perspective of the crew. This is NOT an episode on how to crew an ultra. Unless you want to learn how to forget your runner’s kit. Or how to exchange their supplies for other people’s biscuits.

In June 2019 we headed down to Devon & Cornwall to run in 2 of the Tsunami races – Antony in the marathon and Thane in the inaugural, and very daunting, 75 mile / 24 hour race.

ROT #17 The Fellsman

August 5, 2019

The Fellsman is a fantastic race. But if you enter it you might just want to take an umbrella with you. Hear how Antony got on when he took part in this historic event in April 2019, including why he really should have taken more Vaseline with him…
