New fun running accessory

2 Aug

Since I’ve been running with my iPhone (which doubles as an iPod), I thought it might be time to find a better way to take it along with me while running.  I had been holding it in my hand and since I live in Florida and it’s hot outside, my hands would quickly become sweaty and I could feel the phone slipping.  This always made me nervous. I kept having visions of dropping the phone and the screen shattering into a million pieces.  I finally took some initiative, went online and found an awesome solution.

I purchased an arm band.  Sounds simple, but this one is great!  This arm band comes with a clip, a case, a screen protector, and a wipe cloth for your screen–all for $21.70 plus shipping!  The Marware SportShell Convertible Arm Ban ford iPhone 3G/3Gs works well because I have the arms of Olive Oyl (think Popeye) and usually have a pretty tough time using arm bands comfortably (especially while running).  This arm band stays on tight during my runs and doesn’t slip.  The clip is used to insert the phone into the arm band and is removable, but I tend to just leave it on so I can easily slip it into the armband without too much fuss (and you could also use it to clip on to a waist band) .
