Good bye, beloved iRiver iFP-390T. I'm going to miss you.
I still remember the day I got you. I was so excited. I splurged and went with your generous 256 mb instead of the 128 model.
So what if I couldn't put more than 55 songs on you? That was enough to keep me entertained. I'm a simple girl.
When I decided to try to start running, 55 songs was more than enough to hold my Cool Running Couch-To-5k running mix. Remember the first time you ran out of songs and I was still running? I was so excited. As my mileage increased, it became natural for me to just put you on repeat so we could start all over again from the beginning.
We flew together to Asia three summers in a row. You were there for me on the airplane, on those long stretches on the train and even a few boat rides.
And you were there for me as I trained for my very first marathon.
I guess it's fitting that you were there to help me every step of the way for the Long Beach Half Marathon this weekend.
I'm going to miss you, iRiver iFP-390T!
