In a moment of madness a few weeks ago I signed up for the Spartan Sprint, a 5k obstacle course event in August. A couple of friends from Buns & Roses have done it before, and despite having to jump through fire, swim through mud etc, they survived, so I figured I would join in this year.
No big deal, except I can barely run for the bus, so something had to be done. I'm on a couch-to-5k training plan that means I have to go out for a run (read: slow jog with regular walking slots) three or four times a week. It's actually going pretty well but with no proper exercise gear apart from some running trainers I was a bit stuck for what to do with my keys and BlackBerry (so I can listen to music) while out sprinting round the park.
So I made myself a little bag.
Just a main pocket for my phone and a Velcro pocket on the front for my house key with a long strap to go across my body.
If it ever stops raining I'll be off to try it out!
