FF: Favorite on-the-run snack?
DB: My wife makes trail cookies that are amazing. They're oats, peanut butter, chocolate and maple syrup.
FF: Who else’s podcasts are you listening to?
DB: Oh man I listen to so many. So I listen to sports talk radio a lot, I’ve now sort of transferred over to podcasts but I’m a lifelong sports radio fan so I listen to Bill Simmons on a regular basis, the Dan Le Batard show.
I’m listening to a lot of shows about startups and entrepreneurship. There’s a great show I listened to this morning called Fit Insider. It’s all about the business of health, wellness and sport. The Morning Shakeout is a great running podcast, the Coop Cast is my coaches podcast. I listen to podcasts when I run all the time. I feel like I can just absorb so much stuff while I’m doing it.
FF: What’s your favorite gear right now?
DB: The North Face Vectiv Enduris has been my go-to shoe. It being winter and living in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve been wearing my Futurelight rain jacket, basically most days when it's cold and wet and rainy. It’s the best waterproof jacket ever.
I’ve never been a waterproof jacket guy, but they somehow made a jacket that's super breathable but also completely waterproof so you don’t get crazy hot and sweaty. Those two are game changer-type pieces of equipment for me.
FF: Did you pick up any pandemic hobbies?
DB: Entrepreneurship! Trying to start a new company, it’s been all-consuming, I think about it non-stop day and night, it’s been super fun and super motivating. But yeah I didn’t start making sourdough bread or start knitting or anything like that. I poured everything into podcasting and Pyllars.
FF: First place you’re going once travel opens back up?
DB: Anywhere! I’d love to get over to Europe for a race in the spring if possible. If nothing else I’d love to just go to Hawaii and sit on a beach and get some sunshine and be out in the world again.
