I've started training again. I've made the goal to run the full marathon next year. I have two things right now that I just love and have to do a plug for.
I like to listen to music while I run and in the past, I've tried several different ear buds only to be frustrated because apparently my ears aren't made like everyone else's? Why do all of the ear buds fall out of my ears as I trounce along?
Not anymore! I'm not even sure how I found these puppies but I'm thrilled that I did because I've not had any problems since!
Yurbuds. They look weird. I'm weird and apparently so are my ears so we get along just dandy great. They don't fall out of my ears and they are comfortable. Other ear buds I'd jam into my ears so hard trying to get them to stay my ears would hurt. Love these!!! I got mine from Amazon.
My next love is one of these puppies:
It's a hydration belt that doesn't slip while I run and even though I am carrying water on my hips (no comment on what all I'm carrying on my hips please.........) it is not heavy or uncomfortable. The water bottles you squirt, I don't have to suck the water out which for me is great. I'm already out of air. It has several other little nifty things but just having a belt that doesn't slide or move around on my hips is pretty much right up there with chocolate ice cream with chunks of brownie in it covered in hot fudge and..........
This is why I must run. I crave things that add more than water to my hips.
Before the 1/2 marathon I did a bit ago, my friend Natalie and I found these belts. I'm ready to get another one. This one I like for long training runs. Natalie has one that is for race day or shorter runs that doesn't have water bottles. You can attach water bottles to it if you want but I like the slimness of it for packing your phone or what have you, maybe some chapstick, some runners goo stuff......
You can find these belts on the iFitness website here.
