Jaybird creates high performance wireless headphones for athletes. ‘Designed for Athletes, Built for Adventure’ is the core of Jaybirds ethos.
Trail runs up high, climbing at shady cliffs, and SUPing on the lake are a few of the ways we’re filling the hot, sunny days of late summer—we’re already trying to minimize being indoors, so it’s the perfect time to get outside. And for many of us, it’s almost time to drop back into school, work, or even just the new normal. Whatever the next few months hold for you, Jaybird’s True Wireless Vista headphones will keep you motivated through the final days of summer, and keep you focused up when it’s time to buckle down. Get out there, live it up, and enjoy your freedom to your favorite soundtrack.
Vista: Vista is Jaybird's first dustproof, shockproof, waterproof, and sweat proof set of true wireless earbuds. Vista's innovative design and unrivaled combination of comfort and performance ensure you'll never worry about them falling out and slowing you down.
Jaybird would like to offer 10% off a Jaybird Vista purchase to all ROO listeners. Use code ROO10 on Jaybirdsport.comJaybirdsport.com
This podcast is sponsored by Oiselle. Oiselle is a Seattle based, women run athletic apparel company, for women. Oiselle makes beautifully designed and functional running apparel for female athletes of all ages, paces, and places and brings together a community of women who love to move, run, and fly. Their mission is threefold: make great products, improve the sport, and build the sisterhood. Oiselle makes apparel for both recreational runners and women who are at the pinnacle of their sport, and everything in between. Three American Records have been set in Oiselle uniforms, and their extended sizing means there is something for everyone. The design and wear testing process is extensive, and they use models that are as diverse as their incredible product choices.
Oiselle’s website is full of free resources for training plans, advice for girls and much more. As part of Oiselle’s social mission, they created the Bras For Girls program, aimed at encouraging participation in sport for late elementary to middle school girls.They donate sport bras to girls at an age where many stop participating in sport due to discomfort with their changing bodies. Oiselle aims to encourage participation in sport by reducing a prominent barrier for many girls in that age demographic. So far, Oiselle has donated over 8000 sports bras to middle school girls, and is expanding the program every year.
Oiselle has organised a WOMXN RUN THE VOTE virtual relay from Atlanta, Georgia to Washington, DC, September 21st-27th, 2020.

Platinum Physical Therapy is a private practice sports medicine clinic whose mission is to provide evidence-based physical therapy care to help people live their healthiest lives possible. They have clinics located in Ashland, Hopkinton, and Milford Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. The physical therapists at Platinum PT work with their patients one on one at every treatment in order to provide consistent care from day one until discharge. They are runners themselves and understand the demands that endurance athletes experience in training at the recreational and elite levels.

Unlike most insoles, Currex insoles are both designed to be incredibly comfortable in your shoe, as well as providing stability and support to aid you in your daily activity. Designed by German sports scientists, Currex is the first insole brand to provide dynamic arch support, and offers the largest line of sport/activity specific insoles (running, cycling, soccer cleats, walking and more). The insoles are thin and low profile, and deliver maximum support and comfort, providing a range of functional benefits. They reduce foot pressure providing additional relief for your feet, and can be cut to custom fit your shoes. Currex stands behind their product, and offers a 60 day warranty, even if you have custom cut your insoles.
If you spend time outside, you will be no stranger to sunburn, insect bites, cuts, scratches, gravel rash, chafing, blisters, rope burn, and the more serious gashes and wounds from falling and pushing your limits. Normally, you’d need a wide ranging first aid kit to deal with the varied nature of the above. Active Skin Repair changes that, bringing a single product to protect your skin by both healing and sanitizing.
Active Skin Repair harnesses the power of the human body, replicating the same molecule your white blood cells use to create a natural antimicrobial. It fights off foreign organisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses, all whilst supporting your body's natural healing process.
This all in one 3oz solution has an active hero ingredient (HOCI) which is backed by years of scientific research and uses the same FDA cleared medical grade molecule that is used in hospital wards worldwide. Produced in an ISO certified clean room in California, this means you are using the highest grade product available. This medical grade technology is not only extremely safe, but it is also non toxic.
Normally antiseptic sprays and other medical products irritate and sting the skin, and are limited to use in certain areas of the body. Because this hero ingredient is innate to our immune systems, you can spray it all over the body, including the eyes, ears, mouth, and those sensitive areas normally covered by underwear. This is a safe product that has no toxicity or allergic reactions. It is endorsed by Pediatricians and Dermatologists for use on the youngest members of your family, but works just as well on endurance athletes competing to win, or anyone adventuring on the weekend. Runners World ranked Active Skin Repair as the #1 skin saver product.
Active Skin Repair is a must for everyone, everyday. It keeps your family and friends healthy and clean whilst the versatility means it can be both a ‘break in emergency’ and regular day to day product (and everything in between). Keep a bottle in your car to spray on your face after removing your mask or for dealing with those post run/bike/hike skin irritants. Put a bottle in your home first aid kit to replace toxic first aid products, and take a bottle with you on long days out in the mountains or outdoors, where you need to be prepared for anything.
