DEATH to EAR BUDS!


**** UPDATE****
I DID IT!
30 MILES FOR THE WEEK: DONE AND DONE!


I am so thrilled that I did it!



Can I just say, I LOATHE, I HATE, I DESPISE my ear buds? I spent 78% of my energy during today's run on putting my ear buds back in my ears, adjusting them, and messing around with them. One of the things I love about winter running is my awesome ear warmers because they hold my headphones in my ears. I don't know for sure but maybe I have unusually small ear canals? Or unusually sweaty ears? Am I the only one with this ridiculous problem? Does anyone have ear phones that they absolutely love? I am willing to try anything, even the 80's style boom box on my shoulder would be better than what I went through today! My ear buds are so bad they are dead to me.

Today I am grateful:
for a fun picnic on the Sound with my little family!
for a napping little boy so I can blog!
that I accomplished my 30 Mile Challenge!
THAT MY JOB SEARCH IS OVER!!! YIPEE!

Run Happy Everyone! And THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MOTIVATION THIS WEEK!
You are all the BEST!

  1. I used to have MAJOR issues then I bought the Scullcandy ear buds from Sports Authority for about $20 and have had not issues. AWESOME.

    Job search is over that is great.

    Way to go on the 30...I think I was a little short, but I ran 6 days this week...which is a record for me...

  2. I find if there is any tension on them at all they will pop out. I usually tuck them so that the wires are under my sports bra and then they stay put.

    Otherwise they totally go everywhere, I swear it is the sweatyness.

  3. Way to go on the 30 miles! Great job!

    I have no tips for earbuds. One of mine always slips out of my ear when it's raining because it's getting wet. Have to find some new ones too so any tips are welcome!

  7. Love your blog! I have never commented before, but you always help motivate me to get out there and run!

    I also hate earbuds! You can get custom earmolds made at an audiologist. They are awesome! They fit your ears exactly and are very easy to put in and stay put. I have very small ears, and these are wonderful. They cost around $70, and are SO worth it. I have had mine for 4 years, and they don't look worn at all. Anyway, hope this helps after all the help you have given me!

    Thanks!

  8. Congrats on meeting your goal!!!!

    Ear buds are a nuisance to me too; I'm always adjusting and pushing them back in. I've had better luck with the headset-types (real thin, not like big ol' headphones or anything)...but haven't found anything that works with the ipod. Good luck!!
