Tomorrow is October, and you know what that means… the start of marathon season! With the Chicago Marathon next weekend, and the New York Marathon just a month away, runners are amping up their game to be in peak physical condition. And increasingly, the tradition of yoga is becoming a part of that preparation.

For this week’s Sew & Tell, I got to speak with the lovely Sevda Holland, co-founder and designer for a line of organic yoga and performance wear called Prancing Leopard. Sevda and her husband, Bert, started the line in response to a lack of stylish, eco-conscious movement clothing, and their garments definitely fill an important niche in the athletic community. On today’s show, Sevda talks about what prompted her and Bert to start the line, some of the causes and communities that Prancing Leopard supports, and a few (exciting!) plans for new Spring 2012 collections.

Plus, new Wilco, Dan Mangan, and Astronautalis, as well as two great remixes for you in the playlist! So do some yoga poses, get on those running shoes, and hit the trail with an all new Sew & Tell on BTR!
