running under the BigSky
my first ipod was purchased roughly a year ago- I think I may have been the last person to own one??? but I have to admit it's nice when I'm running or working out at the gym, I'll run w/o it occasionally, but prefer running w/ it

I started to listen to Podcasts on my long road runs toward the end of my training for a marathon. My problem is that I live in Florida and I, uh - hm, sweat a lot. Kids call me the freak of nature. I killed two Ipod shuffles in one week! Luckily the Apple store took pity on me and replaced them (probably because I straight out admitted that my sweat was probably the issue). They really need to add bluetooth to those things.
GoRunDad- When I lived in Naples, I was burning through iPods at an alarming rate. You're lucky because they don't usually replace them when that happens.

warden, you are not the last one. I don't officially own one yet, but I have been playing with the thought of using DD's second i-pod (which she got from a "Secret Santa" last Christmas, but has never used yet) on very long or tough runs. Haven't used it yet, though, because I'd have to figure out how to work those electronics, and that seems just too hard for an engineer...
I think the music might pep you up when you're almost done.
But still, just unthinkable - we know there's just ONE RIGHT WAY to be on the trails, and that does not involve any music devices or other entertainment, like cameras, Garmins, flow meters,...
Run for fun.
There are waterproof i-pods around, but they are very expensive.
I usually put all electronics in a ziplock bag on my runs - you never know when a shower is going to pour down, or how much you're going to sweat.
BTW, car keys with electronics in them are vulnerable to humidity, too!
I paid big money for the Lifetouch waterproof Iphone case. For the Sweat mentioned earlier...

+1...but worth it for peace of mind...I actually got mine used for about $35 through an Amazon vendor.
Are you doing this for world peace? For the homeless? Are you running for women's rights? The environment?
They couldn't believe somebody would do all that running for no reason.

What's an ipod???
