This week’s episode is sponsored by PickyBars. I’ve been a customer of PickyBars since their early days, and they get better every year. Created from a need to have a performance and real food bar, PickyBars are one of my favorite fueling choices. 

I’ve been a member of their monthly club subscription for years now. I have a bar before all my weekday runs, and enjoy their oatmeal before long runs… both are so easy on the road.

I’m excited to share 20% off a one time purchase OR your first month of the PickyClub with code FORTHELONGRUN. Enjoy!
