It Was Nice Knowing You Headphones

by Meghann on December 31, 2008

I present you, the headphones of an avid runner…


They are sweaty, discolored and now broken. :(

During my run this morning my headphones decided it was time to bite the dust. The headphones did have a good run, they lived a healthy 6 month life and kept me distracted during multiple races, vacations and at work. RIP Headphones! I actually received a Best Buy Gift Card for Christmas and was wondering what to buy with it, I guess I got my answer. 😉

Besides the silent portion of my run, it really wasn’t that bad. I drove to one of my favorite spots, Blue Jacket Park, and ran a couple of laps around Lake Baldwin. It was a beautiful crisp morning and the path was not over crowded as usual. I completed 6.89 miles and burned 647 calories, not bad for a New Years Eve work out.

When I returned I made a hearty breakfast for myself.


I made a scrambled omelet with 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, mushrooms, garlic, broccoli and green onions.


I had a piece of Toast topped with Pumpkin Butter


And a handful of Grapes and Cherries.


I can not believe today is the last day of 2008! It has been a great year. I plan to take it easy the rest of the day and then celebrate the start of the New Year tonight. Is anyone else doing anything fun tonight?

R.I.P., headphones.

I’m taking it easy with the family tonight – especially since the weather is BEYOND horrid here today.

Happy New Year, Meghann!!!

sad about the headphones! i got some cheap in-ear headphones at target (these — — in green to match my nano) and they’ve been great for the $10 i spent! they sound good and this way, i won’t be sad when my sweat ruins them :)

headed to miami for new years eve . . . although we’ll probably end up just staying in and toasting with champagne by the pool! at least i’ll enjoy some of your florida warmth!

Ooh, what kind of headphones are those??

Are they different than the headphones that come with an iPod?? I can never get those to stay in my ears :(

Sorry about the headphones, but at least you’ll know what to get at Best Buy!

Great run stats too!

Happy New Years!

Sorry about the headphones. My earbuds are looking pretty nasty as well. Beautiful breakfast scramble. Happy New Year Meghann!

No plans tonight – that’s what happens when you have a wee-one. Plus it is snowing like crazy so I don’t want to venture out in this crummy weather. Happy New Year!!! I hope you have a great night.

That scramble looks soooo good! I think my headphones are on their way out too!

We’re going to dinner and then probably relaxing! Nothing too thrilling!

That breakfast looks awesome…might even convince me to skip oats one of these days!

Low key night planned…maybe American Teen per your recommendation!

I LOVE Lake Baldwin and Blue Jacket Park!!! Mine and Ross’ first kiss was at Blue Jacket Park one night a longgg time ago, we had an engagement photo shoot done there, have gone for many picnics, jogs, walks, and rollerblade sessions there – I love Blue Jacket Park!

Can you tell I got excited when I read that’s where you ran this am? :) Makes me miss Orlando! Happy New Year’s Eve!
