Hi guys, great post and Boston marathon is one of the most famous worldwide. We are in the audio industry; we were wondering if you have any statistics on how many runners wear earbuds during the race? We know its common practise while training, but would you know if its common whilst actually ” racing”? Your assistance would be appreciated.

Many Thanks indeed
