Finally, FINALLY! The iPhone 5 has come! I don't know about you, but I've been waiting for this day for MONTHS! And it's not just because I'm an Apple nut (I am, don't get me wrong), it's also because the iPhone 4 I've had for 2+ years is on it's last legs. The top/lock button doesn't work, the front button is dicey and only works if I press it 5 times or in the exact perfect spot, when the keypad pops up it won't clear out until I open an application ... ETC. It's a mess! I've been holding my upgrade for months and months waiting for the new iPhones to come out and because I have the best husband ever, he pre-ordered it for me the day they came out. I'm expecting it the first week of October (BOO).

My current phone is all messed up because I run with it (and ran a half and full marathon with it) and it's been dropped in shallow water once. I have little kids and a hectic life and it's near impossible to keep it out of moisture. And so I'm now looking for the perfect iPhone case to protect my new phone when it arrives, just in time for me to run with it in the Chicago Marathon. I've been considering underwater cases like the ones Natalie wrote about this summer, but I can't help but wonder if there's a more athlete-specific case. Have any of you had one/seen one around? I would love to get a "pretty" case like these, and my current case style (which was awesome for regular use) isn't going to cut the mustard this time around. My husband keeps trying to convince me to run with his Garmin or with my iPod nano and leave my phone at home, but I'm a Nike+ GPS app addict, listen to music while I run on the phone, and I'm not ready to go out without my phone handy in case of emergency.
Do you run with your phone? How do you keep it dry? Any case recommendations you have are much appreciated!
