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.
Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
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?
