Get in Gear: Split Ring Key Perfect For Runners

If you're a runner, you know that storing your keys can be a challenge. Often, I end up taking my house keys off the key chain and tying them to my shoe or looping them around my finger.

So I'm loving this Split Ring Key ($7 for two). It's a key with the key chain built right in, so it's easy to slip off of your keychain and onto your finger or shoelaces. Better yet, they come in packs of two, which is handy for anyone who lives in an apartment building that requires two keys. The key blank can be shaped on any key cutter to fit any door lock.

Would you use this? How do you carry your keys when you run?

I put my key in my iPod armband. The only problem is I live in a condo and need a fob to get into the building in addition to my key, so if a concierge isn't there, I'm kinda screwed and can't get into the building! How annoying!

I wear sneakers with a little pocket in the side. Perfect for keys!

I just use a metal clip instead of a ring to attach my house key to my other keys. Then attach or remove is super easy.

I think that is a pretty good idea! I either stick it in my iPod arm band, attach it to my dog's leash/collar (I usually run with my dogs), or I also tie them into my laces.

Tie to my laces. ... unless it's a long run, and then I put it in the fuel belt.

I slip my car key off my ring and tuck into the side of my sports bra. I like Sugar_Rush's idea to tie it into my laces!

This is one of those "why didn't anyone think of that before?" kind of things. Could be very useful!

I live with my family so I usually never take keys with me. I lock the door and slip the keys in the mailbox. Then when I come back, I ring the doorbell. :)

i just take my car key off the ring and lace it into my shoe laces. It doesn't flop around or anything and it's definitely never come off.

I tend to either slip the key into my ipod armband or into the little zipped pocket on the back of my running capris.
