Show Notes

Just like that, just like that, we're here to chat shit about fitness, running and tech. This "week" we teach you a life hack to be Andy Serkis on the cheap and get our excuses in for a series of terrible runs. We refuse to apologise for an extended chat about JavaScript, Nick does some ERL learning the hard way, Jon has no mates on Strava, and we almost certainly over promise on the show notes (which none of you read anyway). - [Pronation, explained](https://www.runnersworld.com/running-shoes/pronation-explained) - [Gait analysis](https://www.runnersneed.com/expert-advice/gear-guides/gait-analysis.html) - [Footbalance custom insoles](https://www.footbalance.com/) - [Vue.js](https://vuejs.org/) - [The Mania Half](http://themaniahalf.co.uk/) results are in - [Jon's WrestleMania ear worm](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_hYvj_g3w) - [Vote for us in this nonsense](http://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote) just like [Jillian did](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/985282970402590721?s=09) - Be [Jon's friend on Strava](https://www.strava.com/athletes/jonhickman). He's desperate. - [You Don't Look Like a Runner is now a club on Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/445740) because obviously.

Season 2 Episode 1: Dad++

Welcome to Season 2! What awaits you inside? Will there be a controversial new younger character who changes the dynamic of the show? Will Jon remember how to read the outro? Has the Audio Veteran delivered? You can probably guess the answers to all of these questions but it's about the journey so grab your stickers, pour a juice and settle in. --- Oh a quick plug. We briefly mention in the show that Jon is running the Great North Run for charity (mate). It's a charity that's really important to Jon's family. We didn't really get into it and that race will be run by the time we tape the next show, so if you'd like to know more here are some links: * [The charity is the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charitable Fund ](https://rohcharity.org/). * [This is the Just Giving page complete with a tl;dr backstory](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/corrina-hickman) * [This is the full story about why he chose this charity if you want to know more. It's a bit emotional, sorry](https://www.facebook.com/899120505/posts/10162262870665506?sfns=mo) *Remember: only the good ones read the show notes* ...
