This podcast is brought to you by BOCO Gear, a Boulder based custom headwear company company named after Boulder, Colorado.

BOCO Gear was founded by kay Martin and born out of her learnings during her more than 25 year career in the outdoor industry. 

If you’ve been running trail or ultra races for the last few years, there’s a pretty high chance you own a BOCO hat or two. 

I have almost a dozen BOCO hats and they’re definitely my favorite headwear, and early in the pandemic they even started producing high quality face masks!
