Runners – how do you carry stuff?
Grrrrrrrrr! Moly has a melt down 🙂
BTW, it’s bloody hot out there in the Fens. Despite touching the envelope etc, I managed to drag my sorry arse there and back without incident (or data malfunction) and am now trying to cool down. It’s 31°c here (so says my temperature evaluation and recording device – aka thermometer 🙂 )Posted 4 years agosurferMember
I didn’t start THAT conversation. I asked how people carry stuff. It’s a question about kit.
I didn’t ask ‘do I need to take a phone?’ or ‘tell me how to enjoy my running’ did I?
Forum post in going a bit of track shocker 🙂
Molly in this weather you should be wearing nothing but a thong!
IAMNRAT but I carry a door or car key and shove it in the pocket that most of my shorts have sewn in. Other than a watch which takes care of itself I dont feel the need to carry anything else so cant add much more.Posted 4 years agosurferMember
That’s a description of running right out there, on the edge
Really? That would explain why I never reached my potential. I was following the “run till yer eyeballs pop” school of thought and banging my gonads in the door post training session advice, not an envelope in sight! 😥Posted 4 years ago
Does no-one listen to music when running?
I carry a phone for GPS logging and emergency calls when running, but primarily so I can listen to music while I’m out. Usually just wedge it in a pocket of my shorts.
I’d quite like a better / comfier means of storage but all the belts and armbands I’ve looked at are either too small for my phone (seems everything’s designed for iDevices these days) or way overkill marathon packs that can carry two litres of water and a boy scout.Posted 4 years ago
No, no music for me. I like music inside, when working inside or when driving. When I’m outside I like to be immersed in the outside, I find music makes me feel claustrophobic. I don’t even like it on public transport.
Cougar did you check out those spibelts mentioned above? They look great and have a wide range of sizes etc.Posted 4 years ago
I would suggest, molgrips, that if you do use a small, tight fitting waist belt style bag, always wrap your phone in something waterproof. I did a long fell run a few years ago with a music playing thingy and destroyed it with sweat.
Zipvit do a tough little phone style Ziploc bag, but it’s the right size for an S4 mini, not sure if it will fit anything larger in.Posted 4 years ago

I did, website wasn’t too clear as to how they worked TBH. Are they elasticated pouches?Posted 4 years ago
Next Moly thread on STW: How to get breast milk out of my phone?
Proper lol 🙂 I love language – we only use a few thousand words daily and yet it’s still possible to come up with a combination that has almost certainly never been assembled before in the history of the world 🙂

I think so. That’s how it keeps your stuff snug I presume.Posted 4 years ago
