Headphones fall off my ears when running...suggestions please?

I run several times a week and I have the hardest time finding a good pair of headphones that stay on my ears. I've tried the wrap-around ones (they're called earhook headphones) and apparently my ears aren't big enough or something because they don't stay on. I have also tried the in-ear I-pod earphones and those are pretty bad too. I don't want a huge headset, but I want something that will stay on. Any suggestions would be awesome. Thanks.

Any tips for improving times in the 400 meter and the 800 meter run?

No. But to be honest I would not run with headphones. Due to the crazy nature of traffic (if road running) and needing to be aware of your surroundings particularly if you're female it's best to be attuned to what's happening around you. Safety first.

Is there some database where I can compare my 5 and 10k times against other runners my age?

Hopefully this link works- I have these headphones and they aren't expensive. I have tiny ears and the ones that stick in my ears drive me nuts- and fall out. Normal headphones don't stay on but these are great because they fit outside the ear and have a cuff that goes over your ear. They handband part actually goes by your neck under your ponytail (best way I could describe it) and they 'hang on' rather than needing to be attached really. Anyways, I run a lot and these are the best.

If the link doesn't work- they are called "Sony Street Style Headphones" and they are designed for Behind the Neck with a Non-Slip style.

Hope that helps!

How far do you jump?

I wear a sweatband to keep the sweat out my eyes and put my earbuds in my ears and pull the sweat band over on the outside.it pretty well keeps them in place.


I have a pair of Sony earphones (MDR-G42) that hook around my ears and have a band that goes around the back of my head close to the bottom of my hair line. They aren't too big but arent the smallest either. They dont put any pressure on my ears or ear canals like some of the "in-ear" type. And I dont have to worry about them shorting out from sweat like the "in-ear" types. I run on average of 5 miles a day, sometimes 1 or 2, sometimes 15 or 20, and they seem to do me just fine. I got mine at Wal-Mart for about $15 or $20, they weren't much.

Should I start with a walking program before starting a jogging program?

I had trouble finding headphones too because my ears are small. I ended up getting some by Koss (KSC22 SportClip). I've had them for a year and they are still good. I got them at BestBuy. I don't know if they still sell them though. I also found them on a website:
