Listening to music & your training partners

1/11/12     My last blog entry focused on some of the music I listen to while running. That entry also made it seem like I only listen to music while running by myself, and while that used to be the case, it isn’t anymore. Not since I stumbled upon a company called One Good Earbud that “…mixes both channels of sound from a stereo audio device into a single ear - enabling the wearer to maintain alertness in any environment.” This allows me to listen to my music while still be able to hold a conversation with my training partners and stay alert to the traffic and wildlife around me.
     The company was started by one of my friends from back when I was in high school, and the website is a must-see for any endurance athlete or fitness fanatic that wants to be aware of their surroundings and still rock out to their favorite tunes. Check out to see their available products that will make your exercising both more safe and enjoyable. The sound quality is excellent for all types of music and the in-ear comfort is second to none. I was glad I didn’t wear my wireless headphones on Wednesday’s 10-miler, as the traffic along Manchester Road became quite heavy and I needed to hear the cars coming from behind me.
Rock on road runners!!!
