Both the newsletter and podcast are made possible with sponsorship from the following partner brands, all of which have missions I believe in and products that I trust and use myself on a regular basis. One of the best ways to support the newsletter and podcast is by patronizing the partners that help keep them going week in and week out. Check out some of the discount codes and special offers available exclusively to readers and listeners of the morning shakeout below.
Tracksmith is an independent running brand inspired by a deep love of the sport. Their Winter Collection is now available and features staples thoughtfully designed for training and racing hard in cold weather. I’ve been living in the Turnover Tights and rock the Brighton Base Layer under my jacket a few times a week. If you buy anything on Tracksmith.com, and you’re doing so for the first time, use the code MarioNEW to save $15 off a purchase of $75 or more. If you’re already a Tracksmith customer, use the code MarioGIVE and you can get free shipping on your next order and 5% of your purchase will go to support the Friendly House in Worcester, Massachusetts, an organization that is near and dear to me.
I’ve been ripping around in the soon-to-be released FuelCell SC Elite v3 for a little while now and can’t wait to race the Boston Marathon in April with them on my feet. This is a next-level racer with a carbon fiber plate and plenty of lightweight foam underfoot for a cushioned yet responsive ride. These babies provide a smooth ride and are super fun to run fast in. They’re going to be released widely on February 1 on newbalance.com and at your favorite run specialty retail store, so mark your calendars and snatch up a pair for the spring and summer racing season.
Goodr sunglasses are just the best! They don’t bounce, they don’t slip, they’re polarized to protect your eyes, and they come in a nice range of styles and fun colors. They’re also the most affordable performance shades on the planet with most pairs costing only $25 to $35 bucks a piece. If you want to support the morning shakeout and treat yourself to a pair of goodrs, head over to goodr.com/MARIO or enter the code MARIO15 at checkout to get free shipping on your order. Look good, run goodr!
I’ve been a devotee to Precision Fuel & Hydration products for the past 5 years and my last few marathons wouldn’t have gone as well without them. Go to precisionfuelandhydration.com and take their free online Sweat Test or use the Carb Calculator to get a personalized hydration and nutrition strategy to test in training.
