That being said.... On to the giveaway!
So, we all sweat, right? Okay, well when I moved here to Houston this last May- the sweat meter (from humidity) seriously JUMPED! I've always struggled with headphones. This last year I have gone through about 5 pairs just to try and find ones that fit better. No luck. Not only are my ears shaped a little funny, but with the added sweat nastiness- they ALWAYS fall out or I have to keep adjusting them. It gets to be a pain when I run! I LOVE running with music and about 97% of the time- I won't run without music. I'm just one of "THOSE" runners I guess. ;-) Just kidding.
Well, in honor of my mom and the Marathon for the Cure, Adam over at Yurbuds offered me an opportunity to try out a pair for myself AND he offered to also donate a pair of Yurbuds to one of you lucky people.
He said quote:
"Your personal mission to raise money and awareness for breast cancer is admirable and Yurbuds would be honored to become a part of your endeavors. "
Seriously, how awesome is that?
So, I was able to order a pair of my own. Ordering was REALLY easy. I just had to send in a picture of my profile holding a quarter up to my ear giving them a reference point. From there they sized me and once I received my size I ordered the pink ones, of course! They shipped fast and arrived fast. I was impressed.
These beauties showed up yesterday- just in time for my Monday 5miler :-). They come in this cute blue pouch and with instructions on how to wear them. It's not rocket science, but it was helpful for me. There is also a video online that you can go to if you want to refer to that instead.
My experience: They felt a little awkward at first because they fit in the entire inside of your ear, but once I got going- it was great. It was WINDY out so I thought for sure these would fly out as soon as I started- and they DIDN'T! Hello, excitement! But, I was still waiting to have to adjust them or for them to fly out. For me, the sweating starts right at 1.5 miles. It NEVER fails! As soon as I got to that point, nothing. It was AMAZING! Well, I was still sweating like a mad woman as usual. These may feel magical, but the sweat will still come- they don't cure that problem :-) They stayed put for the entire 5 miles and I didn't have to adjust or put them back in once. Amazing.
Volume. I noticed nothing odd or anything like that. I know I have read that some people had to turn up the volume to hear better- I had the opposite happen. I turned my volume way down. Maybe my previous headphones just sucked that bad :-) They aren't noise canceling and I appreciate that. Because when you are running, it is still important to be able to hear cars coming and things like that to stay safe.
All in all- these were a HUGE success for me. Hence the title: "Yurbuds are my budz". These will hopefully be my running buddies for a while!
