    Same. With air pods you can just set it on the treadmill or keep in your pocket while doing other things. Works for me.

    You are probably right. Mostly cheapness and also an aversion to additional, unnecessary technology haunting me. Ideally wanted to continue with the small, clip to my waistband $50 type set up that I have used for years. I ordered what looks to be a sleek, modern day fanny pack and will see how that goes with the phone.

    Not hold a phone.

    I’ll admit that I do this, too, and I don’t have a good reason why. I switch hands every mile for even more unknown reasons.

    It’s the Lululemon Women’s shorts that have the pocket…

    I actually have no idea but it reminded me when Michael was wearing the women’s suit on The Office.

    I can't really explain it. It feels bulky, annoying. Weighs me down on my 9 minute miles, lol.
    Another vote for cell phone. Plus it can keep your pace.

    Are you male or female? If male, do you wear lined running shorts? I mostly wear lululemon lined running shorts which have a pocket in the liner for your cell phone that holds it tight against your thigh. After 1-2 times running with it, you won’t notice it. Women’s shorts may have them too, but they may not have enough material in the lined - not sure. Also, brooks and Nike running shorts often have midline back pockets for a cellphone that holds them tight.

    They also make little belts for phones - think the worlds smallest fanny pack. I used it before I started running in the lined shorts. They’re ok - better than an arm wrap and loose pocket phone.

    Another consideration for using an armband or belt: Download Strava (free version fine) and start recording all your runs and rides (if you bike too). It gets kind of addictive and a fun way to measure your exercise over the course of a year. It will determine distance, pace and elevation gain.

    CordMcNally I will re-try the arm band thing in the meantime. Thanks all. You guys/gals know everything.
    forget the arm band, you need a waist band or pack, you won't even feel the phone
