But you know what doesn’t make me smile? Wearing gloves, an ear band, long tights, and a thick Brooks top in April does not make me smile. Boo on this cold windy weather! And now there’s snow in the forecast. Thumbs down.
Definitely not smiling about this weather!
Even though the weather was not cooperating, I did have an opportunity to test out my Nathan wrist runner. I bought it on Amazon for about $7. The zippered pocket was definitely secure- no losing my key on this run!
I’m guessing most people wear their wrist runner UNDER the sleeve, but how would the reflective band do its job that way? I wore it outside the sleeve with pride: everyone knew my key was secure!
The wrist runner may be secure, but it’s also a little large. With warm running clothes on, it wasn’t so bad, but I could definitely see it being pretty annoying in the summer. It might cause quite an obnoxious tan line too!
The inside of the wrist runner is lined with a towel-like material, which is probably decent for sweat absorption, but it might not hold up that well in the heat of the summer.
Overall, I think the Nathan wrist runner is a decent fit for your key during a run for the cooler weather, but won’t cross over very well into the summer. I think I will buy one of the shoe key holders like this one:

**Have you tried Yasso 800’s? Do you think they are a good workout?
