I promised my daughter that I will run a 5K race with her next month. I am not a runner, so I need to get in shape and train.
I need a way to carry my phone, which measures my distance for me and is also my timer. I looked at some arm bands on amazon, but in the end I just made one myself. It is cut from a pair of old child's tights, just a tube folded back on itself to make a pocket. I added a button for extra security.
I also needed something to cover my sensitive ears. Cold air or wind makes my ears ache. I have a fleece headband that I wear in winter, but it is far too heavy for this time of year. I cut another tube from the other leg of the tights and sewed it together to make a headband. Now I have matching accessories to run in.
Here's my daughter modeling my new gear.
