I’m proud to announce two things:
- 1) I will be running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon!
- 2) Yurbuds is an official sponsor of ME and the race!
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?
