Run This World: Podcast of the Month

Run This World: Podcast of the Month

podcast of the month

Do you listen to podcasts during your runs or workouts?

I do and this is what I have been listening to recently.

Run this World podcast

Run This World is a podcast by Nicole DeBoom, the founder of Skirt Sports, former pro-triathlete and Ironman champion. Nicole interviews the people she calls visionaries, those who are trying to make a positive change in the world, and she does so in 36 minutes and 38 seconds or the average time it takes to run a 5k.

The podcasts are designed to accompany you through a 5k run and give you enough inspiration to carry on. Nicole has great rapport with her interviewees and each episode is often filled with laughter. If you want a little bit of encouragement on your run and something to get you thinking then do give this podcast a go.

Recent episodes that I’ve really enjoyed have been

Episode 26: Life lessons from a death investigator

Episode 23: Dr James Rouse & Kristine Carey from Skoop

Episode 20: Dave Thibodeau Founder of SKA Brewing on Finding Your Health

Episode 17: Sara Vaughn Mom of Three Defying the Odds at Olympic Trials

Ever thought about running two marathons back to back? How about three? How about running a marathon everyday for 401 days? That’s right, no stopping, no breaks and add to that travelling around the UK so you run a marathon in a different location everyday? That’s exactly what Ben Smith is doing and has been… Continue Reading
