Have you ever received a new tech toy and thought to yourself "How was I living before this product"? That is exactly what I have been pondering since I received my Aftershokz wireless bluetooth headphones. They have been a game changer for my fitness routine.

Tikima and Alexis at the 2nd Annual National Women’s Half Marathon and 8K (4.97 miles)

My love for AfterShokz started during a rainy 8k in Washington DC with my girl Alexis from The night before the race I put together an awesome playlist, found my favorite baseball cap, set out my outfit with waterproof jacket, and lastly but not least packed my new wireless “waterproof” earbuds. I was as ready as I could be. The following morning, I woke up to gray clouds and a storm that was rearing it's ugly head over the Washington DC metropolitan area. Mother Nature how dare you? I thought we were friends. I RECYCLE. I can not back out now over a little rain, so, it's time to get this show on the road.

The race starts and we are off. I place my new waterproof earbuds in my ears, cued up my playlist and we are off. As we passed mile 1, I thought Oh I Got This, Mile 2.5 Juvenile's Back That Thang Up is the Best Song Of All Time, Mile 3 Why Can I Only Hear Music From One Ear? My “waterproof” earbuds not only stopped working in one ear they also started to deliver a small shock in my left ear. DISRESPECTFUL. I look to my left to tell Alexis what had happened. To my dismay, she's casually running listening to music with her AfterShokz. Looking like a graceful gazelle. That wonderful moment I made up my mind..... I’ll have what she’s having.

I received a pair of AfterShokz and I have not looked back. Due to the shape of my concha cavum ( the part of your ear where earpods SHOULD fit comfortably into your ear) I have a difficult time finding standard ear plugging listening devices. AfterShokz fits snug above the ear sending tiny vibrations to the cheekbones to the inner ear. Besides comfort, I love that the design allows you to listen to your music or podcast without compromising your safety. Not a runner? Don't fret. These incredible open-ear headphones are not running exclusive. From my solo hiking trips to commuting on my bicycle, Aftershokz are essential to your daily fitness routine. I am just waiting for Aftershokz to create a headphone that could be used in deep water swimming. AfterShokz, if you are reading this can you do that for me?

Have you tried AfterShokz?
