Do you run with music or not? I did today and it made the time go by so much faster, but I didn't see any other runners with music. Your thoughts?<br><br>
I took my CD player (I am Ipodless) and good Lord it seemed HUGE and bulky and I might as well have taken a turntable and albums.

I use an ipod on the treadmill. I have occasionally used the ipod for long runs on a path that doesn't allow cars. Otherwise, it's too dangeous, imo. I find it essential to break up the monotony of a treadmill run.

For treadmill runs, music is a must for me! I use a little mp3 player, the CD player would seem a bit bulky.<br><br>
I won't use music when I run on the roads (too dangerous if I don't hear a car).<br><br>
I don't use music when I run on trails (don't need the distraction, it's already interesting enough).

I find it a near-necessity for the 'mill.<br><br>
I'm using my ipod more and more on training runs. It's not required but sometimes it's nice.<br><br>
I have the little tiny ipod. Even given its inherent limitation, I highly recommend it.

They are only $79? I thought they were more than that. I've never looked at them. I have to get one.

that is the smallest one. It holds 250 songs, more than enough for me <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> It clips on and is the BEST mp3 player ever. So easy to use and run with. I also have an iPod mini that now lives in my glove box attached to my car stereo.

Nope, I don't.<br><br>
If I had an ipod, I probably would on occasion, though.<br><br>
I used to be very resistant to the idea, but it's really won me over somewhat-- especially with the small ipods and headphones that don't block out outside nose and aren't bulky to carry.
