Anyone who considers themselves a runner knows my frustration when I say that I can’t stand when my cable keeps getting loose as I run; every 5 minutes I would be tucking it back into my shirt. I tried many different things: wrapping it around my arms, going criss-cross in between my shirt and my iPhone sleeve, even wrapping it around my neck! Unfortunately, none of these tactics worked. And the cord around my neck gave me a hint of claustrophobia after a few minutes as the cord slowly started becoming tighter.
When I’m not taking care of my kids, I like to run. Its my outlet. Its my second favorite thing to do – first of which is being a mommy. My outlet isn’t supposed to cause frustration. I like to turn the music up and just run. I don’t want to have to worry about whether my cord is in place or having to try and predict where my headphones will be once they snag on my wrist. Fortunately for me, my husband notices me and how I am feeling. After only a couple of weeks, he spent a few minutes online researching the best pair of earbuds for a runner, and went and bought me some new Bluetooth headphones specifically to use for when I run, and let me tell you – PROBLEM SOLVED. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner! Not only am I no longer worrying about the stinkin’ cord flying in my face (or strangling me!), but they sound great, and they’re much more comfortable than the white Apple earbuds I’ve been used to listening to for the past couple years.
I didn’t even know headphones were this big on the market, or the quality could vary so much. If anyone is interested in what he bought me, they are called JayBird BlueBuds X Sport Bluetooth Headphones, in “Midnight Black”. I think they were just over $100 dollars but worth every penny! My husband actually just ordered a similar pair for himself – once he tried these out he couldn’t go back to the standard white earbuds. And these will be great gifts for upcoming birthdays in the family (most of my side of the family likes to run just as I do, maybe it runs in the genes) .
These new Bluetooth headphones have given me a new-found sense of freedom when I run. I don’t ask for much. I’m pretty easy-going and easy-to-please. Ask my husband. Ask anyone. All I ask for is an hour in the morning to run – snaggle free. That is exactly what these headphones gave me.
