 Mile 016 -What I Talk About When I Talk About Running | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 67:22

"What I Talk About When I Talk About Running" is the new book by Haruki Murakami, the Japanese novelist which in my view is the literary equivalent of a running podcast. Murakami is not only a top writer but also a seasoned marathoner and triathlete. We join him in spirit on a "long run" as his book shares his life in running and thoughts with us. I talk about the book whilst travelling along the banks of the River Stour Murakami feels he is in the Autumn of his running and I celebrate this season which reaches it equinox today (22nd September) by looking at the origins of the words "Autumn" and "Fall" nd how they diverged. Join me on an Autumn run to the local dump for the "Dump Runners Club" as we kick through the leaves! I have a report from the New Forest Half Marathon on Sunday 21st September. It was a beautiful weekend, very reminiscent of the summer with a free hog roast and music festival afterwards at a pub. 12 of us from my department took part so it was a great day. Also last Friday (19th) was "International Talk Like A Pirate Day" so I encourage (bully) some "landlubbers" (members of my team) to talk like pirates or walk the plank at appraisal time!

 Mile 015 - Faster, Higher, Stronger! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 62:44

Faster, Higher, Stronger is the motto of the Olympic Games and the theme of today's show: HIGHER: As we leave Beijing, follow the Olympic spirit to London, home of the 2012 games as we run the Nike+ Human Race from Wembley Stadium, London. This event is aiming HIGH - to get 1 million people running 10k on the same day. Listen to my report from a rainsoaked London (pics above). FASTER: The worlds fastest self-propelled human being is Sam Whittingham, who has piloted his streamlined bike to 81mph (130.34kph). Sam joins me on the show and we talk about his records, the events he takes part in, the remarkable machines involved and the crazy way he has to accomodate his frame within the... er... frame! We also discuss his recent bike ride with Lance Armstrong and Gary Fischer. STRONGER: I share my "Top 5 Olympic Oddities", and the incredible story of Betty Robinson, the first ever female Olympic medalist and her amazing survival from near death, coma and disablement to mount an Olympic comback. Its a tale of immense strength. As I run around RAF Coningsby, I talk about the Eurofighters that are based there, its one of the worlds fastest, powerful and nimble aircraft All this on Edition 15 of the A Mile With Me podcast.

 Mile-013 William Penny Brookes - Olympic Champion | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 45:00

William Penny Brookes has been widely recognised as the founding father of the modern Olympic Games, but surprisingly not that many people are aware of him or his remarkable life. Born in Much Wenlock in Shropshire, England in 1806 he was a local doctor, played a major part in bringing the railway to town and also introduced both a reading and an Olympian class into his newly created library. In 1850 he set up his first Olympian Games and 40 years later a visit to those very games by the French aristocrat Baron Pierre Coubertin was destined to change both their destinies. The Baron stayed at Brookes's house for several weeks and inspired by what he had seen Courbertin went on to launch the modern Olympic movement in 1894. In 1994 the President of the IOC visited Much Wenlock to celebrate a century of the modern Olympic movement and in a moving speech said "I came to pay homage to Dr Brookes, who really was the founder of the modern Olympic Games" Find out more about his extraordinary life and the Much Wenlock Olympian Games as I chat with Helen Cromarty, historian of the Wenlock Olympian Society on Mile 13 of the "A Mile With Me" podcast.

 Mile-012 Digging Deep | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:01

**Check out my website at**   Sometimes raw grit is what is necessary to get through! On Mile 12 of the "A Mile With Me" podcast we look at digging deep, which is what the 2000 participants of Trailwalker needed to do to get through 100km of tough hills within a day. Hear my report from the event which will raise over £1m for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust. A few pics of me on the run are above. Find out one of the 1000 unusual uses for an umbrella! Also hear me off the coast talking about how Bournemouth Council is literally digging deep in the sandy seabed off the coast to create the northern hemisphere's first artificial surf reef. Bournemouth is sheltered from the Atlantic by the Purbeck peninsular and thats one reason why its beaches are regularly voted the best in the UK. Once the reef is open in the autumn it will provide an excellent 400 metre wide surf beach within 1.5 hours of London for the first time. Its even claimed it will be good for the local fish stocks. Hear about what you can see from the Bournemouth Eye and also about the designer developing the "best beach huts in the world". I also explore how focussing on improving concentration can help when you need to dig deep at that crucial point.
