I just came back from a run (okay, more like a run/walk). Halfway out my trusty iPod Clasic flashed, froze and turned off.
It isn't new and it isn't under warranty. It is probably time to get something a little easier to run with--it is quite bulky. Back when I bought it, I had visions of watching television shows and movies on airplanes and then switching over to my favorite tunes. Have you ever tried to watch a movie on one of these things? On the way to Germany, I think I got through about 1/4 of one movie before my eye strain became too bad to continue. Even so, it was a real upgrade from my former Sony Walkman and no-name Mp3 player.
It has been a trusty friend. It has helped me run when I did not feel like running and has gotten me through numerous hours on the (truly) boring elliptical and treadmill. I have used it to listen to podcasts of my favorite NPR shows on car trips and it is a great buffer from the noise of the (too loud) television in the family room when I take one of my soul-replenishing bubble baths.
When I got home I plugged it back in to the charger...it seems to have charged. Even so, the end is near since the charge is not even holding for a full run anymore. It is time to start thinking about a new running 'buddy.'
It has been a great relationship, but I think it is time to move on.
