I have to say, one thing that makes running much more enjoyable, is having music to listen to. I have tried so many different methods of carrying my iPod; a belt, a waist pack with speakers, an various armbands. The best solution I have found however, is the ArmPocket. It's got memory foam cushioning so there's no rubbing even when you're running. The strap is vented for comfort. It doesn't slip, and it's water and sweat resistant-very important when you're using it for a workout. This is the perfect way to bring my favorite songs along on a run!

Oh yes, in case you're wondering about the results of our first ever 5K experience-M and I each placed third in our age division! I'm very satisfied with that, and we've actually decided to keep running, so next time there's a 5K we want to participate in training won't be so difficult! :)
