Most runners aren't the minimalist kind—the type to set out for a 5-mile run without a phone, credit card, ID, key, and fuel. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. For safety's sake, it's smart to run with some essentials. But that doesn't mean it isn't a pain to schlep everything along—stuffing your apartment key in your shoe, tucking some crumpled cash or a card in the waistband of your shorts (hoping they don't get dislodged along the way), and keeping a deathgrip on your smartphone so your sweaty fingers don't hurl it mid-stride. But is your juggling act detracting from your workout?
Luckily there's a better way that doesn't involve fumbling with your running must-haves. Store them in one of these armbands, waist packs, and more (there's even a pair of compression shorts!) They'll give you a sense of security, keep you comfortable, and best of all, bring the focus back to actually running.
And with the new iPhone 7/7 Plus details just dropping (pre-orders begin September 9 and ship from September 16), you can rest assured these will fit the bill. The iPhone 7 is the exact same size (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm) as the iPhone 6S but lighter (138g compared to 143g), according to Tech Radar.
