Listen Up! Earn a Free Audiobook from Audible

We’ve teamed up with Audible to bring you an awesome reward, if we do say so ourselves. Want in? Just joinand completethe Audible Featured Workout, which you can find in the Challenges tab of our app. A 25-minute run or walk will earn you a free download of “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo.


Beyond downloading this bestseller for free, you’ll also have a chance to experience the benefits of listening to audiobooks while you run. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: audiobooks are amazing. Here’s why!

Audiobooks can help you run longer. Simply put: they fight the fatigue of a wandering mind. You’ll be busy paying attention to the story and may even forget that your legs are moving. That’s usually the end goal: zone out to the point of no return. You’ll hit 9 miles before you know it.

Audiobooks may convince you to run more. If you want to get to the next chapter, you’ve got to get out there. Just like a good book that you can’t put down, train yourself to only listen to your audiobook while you run. If the last chapter was a real cliff-hanger, you might try to run twice in one day!

Audiobooks will help you learn along the way! This is the best benefit, in my opinion. If you can’t find time to read or run, why not try both at the same time? You’ll be exercising both your mind and your body. Unless of course, you’re into Sci-Fi—in that case, the exercise will be for your imagination.

Ready to get up and running? Don’t forget to join the Audible Featured Workout so you can give audiobooks a try for free.
