When Mick met Brian

October 15, 2010

Welcome to the third Les Croupiers podcast, featuring the vocal talents of our own Mick McGeoch, interviewing the inspirational Brian Richardson, a relatively recent member of the club who is enjoying a quite enviable purple patch. At age 52, Brian is fitter, faster and stronger than he has ever been and the hard work pounding on the tarmac has been handsomely repaid with an appearance on the podium; Brian was an M50 silver medallist at the Welsh 10km championships, an event incorporated into the Cardiff 10km.

You may notice the occasional dramatic pause - 'Where's Brian?!' - and the rustle of props as Brian produces the secret of his success. All this adds to the colour of a live interview.

Anyway…..without further ado and without spoiling it’s contents further, here it is………


The Mick McGeoch interview

August 13, 2010

At long last! We've finally got around to adding another podcast. This time around we interview local running legend Mick McGeoch - 2.17 marathon runner, GB 100km runner, organiser of the Barry Track 40, one of the founder members of Les Croupiers running club, editor of club magazine 'ACE' and lots more besides.

The podcast was recorded in the very convivial atmosphere of the Butchers Arms beer garden hence the occasional background noise. So....turn up the volume, find a comfy chair and learn the secret to running longetivity, the potential benefits of a twice a day run, explore visions of the the club in 30 years and a key question considered - is Barry a kipper? Answers to this and much, much more in our second Les Croupiers podcast.

(Many thanks to Mick for his time).
