Show Notes

The elite runners may nearly be back at the finish, but the green wave of podcasting is just setting off which means it's time for us to get started on this year we call 2018. We set ambitious goals, plan to infiltrate a gamergate stretching class, and get some long overdue slidey experience. Nick's been over the mountain, Jon's got a very long agenda, and we employ an unorthodox Runner Pod editing strategy. This conversation will conclude in Runner Pod 19: Between my Face and My Finger. See you next week (honest). ## A word from our sponsor Thanks to our podcasting host [Podiant](http://podiant.co/) for supporting _You Don’t Look Like a Runner_.

Memory in the battery

It’s the show that changes every week! It’s Runner Pod, and we are here once again to talk about fitness, running and lithium ion batteries. This week we are in a self-congratulatory mood off the back of the triumph that was episode 21 (or was it 20? Nobody is sure anymore). We talk about adjusting training plans when life happens, Nick makes a bold claim that something which has run once is, in fact, a tradition, Jon chooses shoes wisely, and we audition for /I Love the 90s/. Please ensure that you fully discharge your podcast player’s batteries before you play the show. * [Battery Memory effect](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_effect) * [The Jog Shop 20—South Downs 20 mile race](http://www.jogshoponline.co.uk/thejogshopjog.html) We are hosted by Podiant and you can be too.

Bandit at mile 5

OK juicer, it's time for some fitness, running and tech chat. This week it's actually about ethics in bluetooth headphone journalism. Nick's on the cans, Jon just wants to eat his dinner, and we try out some edgy current affairs jokes that are already out of date. As well as comparing notes on our latest runs, we get into some heavy follow up about ethics and consumption in consumer electronics, put together our Runner Starter Pack and explore the curious world of boozed up running. * [Cheese and wine marathon](https://secretldn.com/marathon-du-medoc-cheese-wine/) * [The Hovding Airbag cycle helmet—scroll down for the video](https://hovding.com/hovding3/) * [This fucking hat though lads](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/1198389536532901889) * Tell us about your [#runningstarterpack](https://twitter.com/hashtag/runningstarterpack?src=hashtag_click) on [popular hell site twitter dot com](https://twitter.com/runnerpod) * Send us shitty content and SEO proposals to [anything]@runnerpod.com * Join us on [Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/you-don-t-look-like-a-runner-445740) * Stickers still available if you [donate to Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod) ...

The one person who looks like a runner

We’re back, like the rappers are, to lay down diss tracks for one another through the medium of podcasting. This week our biggest fan doesn’t listen to the show, Nick gets stretched and Jon feels vibrations through his skull. If you want to listen along without spoilers, please watch _The Barkley Marathons_ before playing or pause at 43:25 and then hit us back, just to chat, truly yours, this is Stan. * [Top Four #36: Misheard Eddie Vedder Lyrics - Relay FM](https://www.relay.fm/topfour/36) * [Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone conducting headphones](http://amzn.to/2FASmGJ) * [Reconcilable Differences #68: includes a discussion on The Barkley Marathons](https://www.relay.fm/rd/68) * [The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young – A Documentary Film](http://barkleymovie.com/) ...
