How to have it both ways on your run

After three years of marriage, it's become very clear to me that my husband and I will likely always have glaringly different morning routines. Whereas he spends a good deal of the morning in the bathroom (and wakes up early enough to have that time), my preferred style is get up and go. I'm in and out of the bathroom in under 5 minutes - brushing my teeth while attempting to put my socks on, scrambling out the door with my coffee in hand and somewhat half-dressed. When I make it into the studio with my shirt on the right way (aka not inside out), it's always a little victory in my day. I imagine my husband leaves the house with ample time to spare. He never has to question whether he has both socks on when he gets to work. Goals. While our morning routines are very different, we do share one routine in common: we always have our AfterShokz headphones on.

All the daily essentials.

He loves his AfterShokz because he can listen to his podcasts in the morning before work. Whether he's shaving, putting shoes on, or watering the plants, he can keep listening without getting tangled in cords and still hear me yelling "bye!" as I scramble out the door.


My morning routine: AfterShokz + Coffee

I typically throw on my AfterShokz first thing in the morning to wake up with a little music. This gets my brain functioning and ready to teach an early morning yoga class. Or, when I'm lucky, go for an early morning run.


They take me from my mad dash out of the house, to my bike commute. Then, as soon as I'm finished teaching, they're back on in time for morning calls. And they stay on for afternoon podcasts while I take Abbie out to the park or catch some mid-day miles.

Over the Afternoon Hump: AfterShokz + Run

AfterShokz are as "must-have" as my cell phone. They are not only wireless and stay on through every activity throughout the day, but they are also a safe choice for listening to music or podcasts, even if you're on-the-go. I love that I can safely wear headphones while running or on my bike commute. AfterShokz uses bone conduction technology, meaning they don't go inside your ears. So you can hear your music (or podcasts) and still hear your surroundings.


And since we've been talking safety all month long in honor of National Safety Month, we're giving our lucky readers all a chance to win a pair of AfterShok Trekz Titanium headphones.

AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Giveaway

Don't want to wait to see if you're the lucky winner? You can also purchase your own AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones and for a limited time, you'll receive an AfterShokz water bottle with your purchase.

For the love of still being to hear your friends while listening to music on a group run!
