In my opinion, one of the best ways to pass the time on a lonely long run is to listen to quality AA Speakers – you get to learn more AA and it is pretty cool and funny when you’re passing people in a trail ultramarathon knowing they would be very surprised and dumbfounded if they could hear what is coming through your headphones!
