Running with cell phone and other running technicalities.
I've recently gotten back into running (using all lulu gear of course save for my runners and running room jacket), and carrying my cell phone with me has been an issue as I run in trails and whenever I can fit it in with my two small children (2 and 3 months) and I like to keep as safe as possible. My issue is I don't like carrying extra gear (fuel belt) or layers if I don't have to. On hot days when I'm wearing a tank and running crops I have nowhere to stash my big clunky Blackberry. Last week I purchased the running bonnet in white with a pocket just perfect for the blackberry, keys and id. Women runners, always always carry ID and your cell!!! Yesterday was my test run in that foul Vancouver wind storm we had and it worked perfectly. My worry was that the phone would be too big to carry in that pocket and the hat would fly off (I have a narrow head) or I would get torticulis from the lopsided hat. Well, the hat fit perfectly and was not at all uncomfortable for this very fickle runner. Despite the wind it did not blow off once nor did it need to be readjusted. All in all I had an excellent run.
