I have known about and worn AfterShokz headphones for the past few years – starting with bike safety and then for most of my running adventures. I even gifted the hubs a pair for Christmas this past year so he wouldn’t get another piece of my hand-me-down gear!
I have had my eye on one of their newest products and I am finally getting a chance to test them out. Check it out!
Gifting with AfterShokz is the perfect way to jump over those holiday hurdles! #bibchat
The pounding the pavement, concrete, trail, or treadmill under my feet. As runners, we all have a memory of these sounds and can hear them vividly…
The sound of cars whooshing by (sometimes closer than we are comfortable with).
The sound of other runners “on your left” or passing you in the opposite direction – a brief “good morning” acknowledged in passing.
The sounds of nature – locust buzzing, crickets chirping, birds singing cows mooing, roosters calling, animals scurrying away from the road (!!), trees rustling in the breeze.
The sound of pumping music to keep up your pace, intriguing audio books or podcasts to give you something to think about, or calming tunes to keep your HR low and steady.
These are a few of the sounds of running I experience every run…
With typical “ear bud” headphones, all but one of these sounds is blocked out – you may only WANT to hear your music/book/podcasts, but this is not a safe option when there is so much more going on around us!
I was introduced to Aftershokz headphones last year and I was given the opportunity to try them a couple times. I was recently selected to test and review a pair with BibRave as a BibRave Pro and once you go with Aftershokz, you won’t go back!

Well, this was a fairly slow week when it came to my workouts and recovery. I ran some, but with 2 “long runs” over both ends of the weekend, my miles showed. I am thinking about changing my recaps to be Monday thru Sunday…that way, a long run will always be present and my weekly… Continue reading going with the flow | Weekly Workouts

As a runner, I get excited to be able to run supporting a cause. Whether a live race or a virtual race, running events help support local causes. When I got the chance to participate in the United Relay of America through my affiliations with Sweat Pink, I was pumped! The United Relay of America is… Continue reading Running for a Cause | UR America
