Yurbuds & Nike Women’s Half Marathon

I’m proud to announce two things:

The half marathon is this Sunday, October 14th and will take place in San Francisco.  Yes, the course is hilly, but manageable, and the view is breathtaking and spectacular.  (So I hear.)  I’m excited to run my eighth half marathon with several other FitFluential Ambassadors.  We’ve partnered up with Yurbuds and were graciously sent a pair of their Inspire Sport Earphones along with some other goodies.

The swag included a pair of Yurbuds (which I tested out about ten minutes after opening the box!), a Luna bar in white chocolate macadamia flavor (yum!), a Yurbuds Sweaty Band (the only kind that stay on my head!), and an Inspire towel!  Literally right after I opened the box (and snapped a few pictures!), I laced up my sneakers and headed out for a run.

(I thought it was only appropriate to wear some of my Nike gear with this upcoming race just days away!)  Some quick facts about Yurbuds:

  • Soft medical-grade silicone for a comfortable fit
  • Sweat, water, and germ resistant (Say what?! Awesome!)
  • Natural fit with multiple sizes
  • Allows ambient sounds
  • Guaranteed to never fall out

I was eager to try the Yurbuds.  Afterall, I had still been rocking headphones that wrap around my head.  I couldn’t ever do bud-like earphones because they never.stayed.in.my.darn.ears!  I have small ears and have tried several brands without success.  After five-miles of pavement pounding…

I LOVE THEM!  Not once did I fidget, adjust, fuss, wiggle, or mess with the Yurbuds!  They stayed put in my ears, were comfortable, and played my tunes throughout my run.  I am thoroughly impressed!

Actually, when I turned on my iPod, music came blasting through the Yurbuds and I needed to turn the volume down quite a bit.  This proves two things – 1) how poor my previous headphones must have been and 2) how great the sound is in Yurbuds.

It only took one run for me to fall in love with Yurbuds.  Think itz weird to fall in love with earphones?  Try Yurbuds and you’ll see what I mean.  (Especially those of you with small ears!  But they do come in different sizes, so they work for everyone.)  I’m going to rock the Nike Women’s Half Marathon… with my beloved new Yurbuds! 5 days…

Have you ever tried Yurbuds?  What kind of earphones do you use? 

Note: I was not compensated beyond the Yurbuds and race entry.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. These headphones sound amazing! I have used a bunch of different pairs and I have yet to find ones that stay in my ears without having to adjust them a million times. Good luck on your Half!

  2. I also have small ears. I use my apple iphone headphones now but sometimes they fall out. I can’t wait to try these yubuds! (: The Luna bar in white chocolate macadamia flavor sounds sooooooo good! Good Luck at the half!

  3. How exciting! You are going to have an awesome time at the race! I’ve never tried yurbuds but can never find a pair of headphones I love so I might just have to try them out!

  4. I have wanted yurbuds for so long now – and even more so now that they have a line just for women! I know you are going to rock your half -you’ve trained so hard!

  5. Those look like a wise investment! I hate readjusting my headphones mid-run/ workout… And unfortunately I seem to have to do all too often! The pink color doesn’t hurt either 😛

  6. Congratulations Lindsay! I ran the Nike Womens Full Marathon back in 2010, but kinddaaa wish I did the half. About 75% of the participants do the half and after the 13 mile mark the course became very empty. Regardless, it was a GREAT race and course which I’m sure you will LOVE!

    Best of luck!

  7. I’ve never heard of those earbuds before but they sound good! I keep on buying cheap ones that keep on breaking – I think it’s about time I invest in a better pair haha.

    I’m so excited for you to run that race this weekend! You’re going to rock it!

  10. I can’t wait to get mine in the mail! I’ve been wearing the ones that come standard with an iPhone and they are literally falling apart (the rubber on the earbud is shredded), and only the right one really works. The sound out of the left is barely there! I am constantly adjusting them because they keep falling out 🙁
