I have a pair of bluetooth earbuds that I now use when running. They are connected by a wire, and I'm pretty sure that they are designed to be worn with the cord being placed behind the head. The problem with this is that when I wear them that way, the cord gets caught up on my back and jostles the earbuds uncomfortably. It feels like they are constantly of the edge of popping out of my ears. The simple solution to this is to wear them with the cord dangling in front of me which is much more comfortable. The problem with this is that apparently it is monumentally dorky. I usually forego worrying about not looking cool and wear them in the manner that is most comfortable, but today, I tried to improve my coolness by a minute degree by wearing them behind my head. I put up with this more fashion conscious, but much less comfortable arrangement for about 10 minutes before giving up. In the battle between comfort and fashion, I'm just not going to let fashion win.
Today's photo comes from Ketring Park. The contrast between the dark trees in the foreground and the grass and trees lit up by sun in the background was really a cool site.
