by Apr 1, 2020Trail Chat LIVE Q&As with athletes & experts0 comments

Hello everyone! This is no April Fooll! Having mastered the art of the Skype login like a total pro, Comedian Paul Tonkinson is on the live chat tonight, Wed 1 April 6:30pm UK time. Paul has also just published a book, 26.2 Miles to Happiness and he does the well-loved and highly entertaining Running Commentary podcast with fellow comedian Rob Deering. Scroll down for links to Paul’s book and podcast.

We will be chatting to Paul about how he started running, why he and Rob decided to start the podcast, funniest moments so far, writing his book, red wine, the pain cave and his races bucket list. AND MORE as the live questions come in, including Paul’s hilariously outrageous top tip for a fast marathon time. YUCK! To guarantee your question is asked, become a Patreon and support the channel, you will find out ahead of time who our guest is and get the chance to ask as many questions as you like!

Paul’s book, 26.2 Miles to Happiness: A Comedian’s Tale of Running, Red Wine and Redemption is available here –
