I hike more than run, but here are some inhaler options I have used successfully. I got a small inhaler carrier that clips on my belt (or bra/top) for the water park. It would probably work for running, too. I got it from CVS, but you could probably find something on the internet. I got another one from my doctor that clips to my keys; it was made by Xopenex (though I use it for Maxair). I do admit that when I go in a club, I just tuck my inhaler in the side of my bra with my cards. If yours is tight enough, you could try that for your run. I have 2 sets of keys, too. My main big bulky set, and my on-the-go set that only has a house key and car key on it, so it travels with me easier. A small camel or hydration pack (comes in all shapes and sizes) might be a good idea for you. I like the over 1 shoulder across my body version better than the backpack version because it stays more secure to me, but it might be uncomfortable if you are big busted. There is also usually a zipper and/or pouch with it that could hold your few extras. If you always have to use your inhaler when you are running, you may try it before you run and/or ask your doctor to put you on something to prevent your attacks all together. Have fun being active! Breathe well. ;-)

I use a Fuel Belt (one of those jogging belt things). I stuff it with bottles of water/sports drink, keys, inhaler, some money and some ID. If I wear shorts with a pocket then the inhaler goes in that but the Fuel Belt always comes with me.

If you have one that's designed for running then all you have to do is snug it on your back so that it doesn't jiggle around. If mine is wobbling then it's almost always because I don't tighten it enough.

Hello! I'm new and don't know if this question has been asked before, but I hope you guys can help me out :).

I need to have an inhaler with me when I jog outside, and I also need a place to put keys, and I'd love to have water (but I can live without it). The first 2 I really need though, especially the inhaler. I've tried one of those jogging belt fanny pack type things that has a water bottle you can attach and a pocket for that kind of stuff, but I didn't really like it because it bounced around too much when I ran. Where do other people keep these kinds of things? Does anyone jog with a water bottle? Should I find some shorts with a zippered pocket or something, or can anyone recommend a jogging belt that stays put? Thank you :)
