So, first things first. I have a dirty horrible confession to make.
I’m a little obsessed with “Ew!” Jimmy Fallon and will.i.am’s single that they put out a few weeks ago. I don’t know what it is about the single, but I really die for a star’s alter ego, so that’s probably it. Nicki Minaj had Roman, the little British boy. Katy Perry had Kathy Beth Terry who made her appearance in the T.G.I.F video. Taylor Swift just looked like a dork in the “You Belong With Me” video. And now, there’s mir.i.am and Sarah.
So judge me. A ton. I enjoyed it.
Moving right along…
So, I’ve had a terrible run with sports headphones since my second year in grad school, when someone broke into my Taurus, touched my dirty gym clothes, and stole my favorite Nike headphones which were subsequently discontinued. Blarghhh. From then, I lost literally like 3 pairs of earbuds, the old ones, and one of the new ones during a big race.
At that point, I started using Yurbuds, and one after another pair either went missing, or I let folks borrow them, only to never see them again.
So today, I broke my usual Fleet Feet regimen since I was near the REI, and headed in to grab a pair of headphones for a few really long training runs over the next few weeks in prep for Ragnar.
#1, the people are REI were really nice, and 2, on our little frequent REI account we had a $17 thing, so I only paid like 6 bucks for the headphones. Holla!
What’s really cool about this particular pair of Yurbuds is that they’re gender-specific, which can be pretty stupid, like when it comes to the Bic For Her line, but this one is good because it’s a little tinier and shorter, perfect for my ears which are absolutely teeny. So here’s to being able to hang onto this pair for longer than a day or two, hm?
