3 Ingenious Ways to Carry Keys Unobtrusively When Going for a Run
When you are heading out for a run, the worst thing to have to deal with is figuring out how you're going to carry your house keys. Keeping them in the pocket invariably means having to feel them poke into your thigh time and again. And then there's that annoying jingling!
Original poster janield suggests lacing it up with your shoes. First, unlace your shoes for a couple of eyelets (the little holes the laces go through). Thread the lace through the hole in the top of the key, and then lace up your shoes again, such that the key is in the centre of the laces. This part of your foot doesn't move while running, so there won't be any discomfort.
If you're carrying multiple keys, then the shoelace method is bound to become a little too cumbersome. So redditor xyzzs suggests wrapping them tightly in a short length of toilet paper before putting them in your pocket. The method also works with tape.
Use that hole in the key to your advantage! Loop a rubber band through the key, says grash, and wear it as a bracelet -- or even around your legs. There is a chance that the key would flap around as you run, so you might want to use a second rubber band to secure it in place.
