Yurbuds are my budz GIVEAWAY and review!!

Alright, so you have all been reading about the fundraising I have been doing for Marathon for the Cure (Susan G. Komen). Yes, I have reached the "minimum goal", however, I want to raise as much as I can to help support the cure! Thank you all for all of your support and donations! I wouldn't be able to do this without all of you. This is going to be a fantastic event and I am so excited to be representing my mother and all those who have lost a loved one to not only just breast cancer- but all cancer. Cancer knows no gender, race or color and this is why we have to put an end to it. If you are willing and able to donate to the fundraising, I would really appreciate it. Click HERE to go to my donation page.

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 swe
at 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 a
lso 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!

I told you one breast cancer experience, but here's another one. When we lived in SLC, one of my very best friends who had a son about 8 months older than Addison got diagnosed with breast cancer at age 28. She's had to go through treatment, etc. and has had to put off having children for 5 years because of it. So sad!

The 2 things that are most impressive about yurbuds is:
1. They have money back guarentee that they won't fall out (that's crazy confidence).
2. They are sweat proof because I too am a sweating mamma jamma.

I work out with a woman named "D" at a Curves. Over the past year and half she and I have become great friends. She is 56 years old and has been a 10 year survivor of breast cancer. A month ago, they found another lump and she had it removed - it was cancer . . .again. The feeling of defeat was overwhelming. She is the bravest person I know. She has confronted it face on and is taking aggressive action - bilateral masectomy. I'm so proud of her and hope she gets through her upcoming surgeries and treatments well!!!

I'm definitely a fan of the Ironman Performance Raising Earphones. I might have to look into buying some of these for Eric for Christmas or something. He's been getting back into working out and I think he'd really appreciate some stellar headphones

Two of my family members have been afflicted with breast cancer (my maternal grandmother and my father). Unfortunately, my grandmother didn't win her battle but thankfully my father did. I am actually a breast cancer research fellow so I'm trying to do my part to find the cure.

I love the fact that they are sweat resistant. I have destroyed so many headphones. The Halloween colors are cool for this week.
