I'm going to start running again and I want to get an MP3 player to run with. I don't want to use my big, bulky iPod so i was thinking about getting a Nano and an Otterbox. I need to get a waterproof/resistant case because I sweat like gangbusters. It has been said that I sweat "like a hog in heat" by one of my old friends. Anyway, I just wanted to see if anyone had any other recommendations for good MP3 sports players(that you can get a case for).

Oh wait, I forgot about the shuffle. That's even smaller. Maybe I'll get one of those.


ETA: I got a shuffle. Thanks for your recommendations!

Apple just released a whole new line of iPods today. The announcements are still happening.

If you don't want to use your iPod for something like this, why did you get it? Isn't it supposed to be the ultimate portable music machine?

It is, and I take it all over with me and use it a lot. It has my complete music collection on it. But for running I want something that i don't even know is there. My iPod classic weighs over half a pound. The shuffle weighs half an ounce. ;)

i don't think i have ever heard anyone call their ipod "big" nor "bulky." lmao.

a moment ago at my job they asked me to type something for the rolodex. when i told them i had never ever worked an electric typewriter (nor rolodex), all their mouths were agape. i dont know if i felt young/silly or if they felt old/dated. both, i am sure.

Well, I don't know how good they are for sports, but my husband got sick of his nano breaking so i did a little research and suggested he buy a Creative Zen. He's been really happy with it. At the time, all the good reviews were for some sexy expensive one, but he got a lesser-priced one and has loved it.

In new colors, too! Yeah, baby!



Damn, I almost want a shuffle now. I wouldn't need to have a bulky clippy case for it. And they're coming out with a red one. Grrrr. But! $79!!!!! ZOMG

I loved my Minidisk player, but it's gotten too hard to find blank disks for it. =(
