Narc, Narc, Narcing on Heaven's Door

Help yourself to one of Daddy's sports biscuits and enter with us into the Book of Dreams, where we discuss the 2020 National Running Show, meet our idols (and immediately reject them) and try out yet another sports watch.

The Woke XI

Live from the echo chamber, Nick and Jon are back and woker than ever. This week we refine our sales pitch which can now be delivered by bike. We go deep on follow up, set some challenging goals, and go back to the drawing board on fitness watches. Nick has ordered new headphones, Jon just needs to try harder, and we wait for our advertising plans to go “woooosh” and _literally_ let all the air in. ## Show notes * Graeme Le Saux was often cast as an outsider within football for his _Guardian_[reading sensibilities and "sensitive" nature](https://www.theguardian.com/football/1999/may/15/newsstory.sport10).

Between then and the mountain

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_.
