Thanks for the ideas everyone, I am going to try a belt out today! I am also looking into bluetooth earbuds...those seem like an amazing idea, especially for treadmill workouts so i can leave me phone in the cupholder!

I also find armbands uncomfortable, so I use a belt. (I use my phone rather than iPod, and I got bluetooth earbuds, so there are no wires, which is extra nice.)

If you don't want to use an armband, try a running belt. I usually use an armband, but I've used a running belt on occasion. Run the earphones' cord through your shirt and up through your collar. That'll keep it from getting tangled up in your arms as you run.

I put mine in a spibelt on the rare occasion that I do carry it.

Hi all,

I've just started a running program which involves the use of a phone app (c25k, woo!), so I am swiching from using a small clip on music player to my large and bulky phone.

I have an armband, but have found it to be pretty uncomfortable since my phone takes up a LOT of space on my upper arm! What do you guys do with your phones/ipods when running? Are there any alternatives to an armband?
