How do you carry your cell phone during runs? (Read 592 times)

     As a woman who runs alone 99% of the time, and at night during winter, and as a mother who wants to keep her phone on her in case of an emergency and needs to be reached, I need to have my phone on me during my runs. Right now during winter, my tights and capri's work because they have a back pocket with a zipper, but right now with these freak 60 degree temps I would love to wear my shorts, but I need to keep my phone on me. I've been trying to find shorts that have pocket for phones, or even running shirts that have a zipper pocket big enough for a phone (I don't think my phone will fit in my shirts). I really don't want to carry my phone in my hands dang it.

        along with this

        and if I'm running long enough that I need water/fuel, I put the pocket above on my speedbelt.

          That looks a lot like the belts a few of us found at Flying Pig, last year.

          • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

            I use spibelt. Worked great for a year but now the pouch got stretched and became saggy. Probably time for me to get a new one...

                    For you folks that have the FlipBelt, how do they work in wet/rainy conditions (or during particularlly sweaty workouts)?  Do they have any sort or water/moisture resistance?

                      When I take it I use a little bum bag (or fanny-pack as you Leftpondians would say) with a pocket specifically designed for such things.

                          iFitness running belt.  To me, they copied Spibelt but made it better.

                            Curious:  With these belts, is your phone in front, back, or side?  If the belt gives you the option, which do you prefer?

                            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                              I know this is a little off topic, but is a cell phone really necessary for safety on a short urban run?  It is not going to stop an attack like a whistle or mace might and you are probably not far from a business or someone's house if something does happen and you need to make a call.  I used to run after work with a co-worker (a man) who wouldn't run without his phone because he did not want to miss a work call in case there was a network outage.  I see running as the one time of the day I don't have to answer the phone and I refuse to carry one, but everyone's needs are different.
