    Do any of you guys go running with a home-made ipod holder?

    I want to start running again, but couldn't imagine doing so without my ipod. I'm looking for a low cost solution to secure it somehow to my arm, torso, waist, neck (??) anything to keep it from flying off and hitting the pavement (my nightmare vision when i thought of an armband or bandana). Anything short of duct taping it to myself ;)

    I just hold mine and tuck the headphones under my singlet, if I'm wearing a top. :)

    i spose you could just gaffer your iPod to your arm...

    might hurt a bit when its coming off, though :rolleyes:

    I made myself a lanyard for my U2. I got the firewire cable from my 3G iPod (rest in pieces), and cut the FireWire end off it. Now i have a lanyard/portable charging thing!

    The best setup I had was the iPod shuffle with the hard case. Ran several marathons with that, and it worked really well.

    As opposed to running topless?

    If I'm running topless then I tie the headphone cable to me with my chest hair. Nothing worse than having the cable flailing around. :cool:

    haha, unfortunately (or fortunately as the case may be), my chest is naturally pretty devoid of hair, so no such luck there :rolleyes:

    I have a 4G 20gb color iPod, so it's not as bad as the ipods of old, but certainly no mini, shuffle, or nano.

    I've actually begun construction of a nice little thing using an old wallet, a belt, some twine, and a lot of duct tape holding it all together :D

    I'll post pictures if I have any sort of success with all this
