Show Notes

This month the show is sponsored by wireless running headphone specialists, Jaybird.

From the beginning, Jaybird earphones have been designed with the needs of runners in mind. Working with professional runners and endurance athletes, Jaybird’s in-ear design is ultra-comfortable and ultra-secure so they stay put in the ear. They’re also ultra-durable, and are sweat-proof, water-proof, and shock-proof, so handle everything from trail runs to the toughest endurance race. And of course, they have great sound.

So whether you want premium audio for quality listing on a long run or need loud sound for an adrenaline kick, Jaybird has you covered.
