For this Weekly Fourcast, we caught up with Jaybird Ambassador Brooke Bowen. Brooke and her family live in Sandy, Utah, and not only is she a mother of three with a full-time job, she’s also the Spartan Race World Champion in her age group.
“I love that obstacle course races give me a lot of variety in my training, from being up in the mountains to weight lifting at the gym or playing with my kids at the playground,” she says. “I’ve always loved fitness and love training for a special event.”
Brooke’s Recommended Podcasts:
Rise Podcast with Rachel Hollis, Episode 64: Scott Harrison- You have the ability to become something beautiful.
Scott’s incredible transformation is a story that would touch anyone. Going from the lowest of lows to dedicating his life to giving really inspired me. Rachel Hollis always uplifts me with her powerful words and interviews.
Ali on the Run Show, Episode 128: Ali & the Experts Week with Dr. Nicole Detling, Sports Psychologist
This is one episode I listen to over and over again. Dr. Nicole Detling’s words have been a complete game changer for me in improving my mental game during competition and training.
Obstacle Dominator, Season 3, episode 2- The Kempson Brothers
As an obstacle course racer I love hearing a break down of races. There are so many components to obstacle course racing and these guys usually have a fun conversation that is fun to listen in on. This episode in particular has some great nuggets of wisdom from Ryan Kempson about racing that can be applied to any athlete.
Song Exploder, Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way
It’s really cool to hear the story behind songs. I might like a song just for the sound but knowing what made it come to be makes it so much better. It’s really interesting to hear from the actual artists.
The Weekly Fourcast is a series of curated podcast recommendations from our athletes, ambassadors and employees. Every week, we’ll drop a new list of four shows and episodes that you need to hear, direct from the Jaybird crew—the perfect audio fuel for the week ahead.
