I ran my first post-graduation run today, after contemplating dumping Laura. I eventually decided to take her with me but only for timekeeping purposes. It made me think - what do other people take with them on runs?
I always like to run different routes and explore while running, so I rely on Laura telling me how long I've run for so I know when to find my way home, but today I really wanted to listen to the birds in the trees. I often don't take anything other than my old ipod and a spare key so there's nothing weighing down my pockets or hitting me as I run. What are other people's views? Do you carry phones etc and what else do you use for timekeeping?
