Ep 90. Seagulls, Scummy Mummies, 10K races
In this bumper episode, Esther and Holly launch into it with the week’s headline event: Holly’s fight with one of Bath’s resident Herring Gulls. One stressful day later, and bolstered with a tetanus jab, she is FINE, and has used the experience to boost our stats on the podcast. Good girl. Then, less interestingly, Esther ran the London Vitality 10,000 on Monday, so lots of chat about the experience, the runners, the course, the time.
Then Esther and Holly talk to comedians Scummy Mummies, one of which (the lovely Helen Thorn) was also running the V10K on Monday as well. They chat about running, their enduring friendship, and the big life changes that Helen has been through over the past couple of years. Be warned, it’s a bit sweary – but when isn’t the WR Podcast?
Then there’s lots of chat about your embarrassing moments, which Esther and Holly have LOVED, so do please continue to send in, as it makes them feel so much better about their own.
