Weird and Wacky Running Inventions

Think you've seen it all when it comes to running gear and equipment?  Think again...

1.  Tinted Contact Lenses

Yip, no need for steamy, foggy sunglasses any longer.  Just pop in a pair of these and you're good to go.

2.  Runaway Alarm Clock

Struggling to get out of bed for your a.m. runs?  This alarm clock actually runs away and hides if you don't get up on time.  You can snooze it once, but after that it jumps off the bedside table and starts running around and bumping into objects until you get up to silence it, ha!  

3.  Headband Water Bottle Carrier

No.  Just no.  Or perhaps the idea is to "knock yourself out" while running?  Oy.

4.  No More Runny Noses


[Source.]

You know how your nose always runs during a cold winter's morning run and you never seem to have enough tissue paper with you?  Well, voila.  If you don't mind feeling a little, ahem, top-heavy.  (And fingers crossed it's not too windy out there, because that could be a real catastrophe...)

5.  Going Barefoot

Move over Vibram Five Fingers!  The babies, made from stainless steel ring mesh, are recommended for use on "natural soils on land and through water" and creates the feeling of running around in bare feet, but without the pain.  Uhm, is it just me, or do I see a whole lot of chafing coming on...?  

Are there any of these you'd try?  Any other weird and wonderful running inventions you're aware of?

  1. Nice! I once saw that alarm clock at an expo. That is the only one that might actually add value I think. I'm sure the stainless steel ring mesh will cause its own pain :)

    1. Hehe, I can't help but think that most of these were NOT designed by people who run!
