I like spotting new running trends! Here are a few that caught my eye:
- Runners who knit while running a marathon.
- Runners who juggle while running, also known as ‘jugglers’.
- Runners who like to run backwards.
- Runners who tie a parachute around their waist, to make sure running gets even harder.
- Runners who like to engage in some ‘shopping mall running’.
- Runners who like to run from imaginary zombies.
My own running trend: Luggage Running
I get all inspired by these people. So I decided to invent my very own special running trend! I call it Luggage Running. All you need are your running shoes, running clothes and some luggage. To be precise: one of those suitcases with little wheels and a top carry handle.
You can even pick a trolley that matches your running clothes.
Added benefit of Luggage Running
An added benefit of luggage running is that finally you don’t have to worry where to keep ‘your stuff’ during your runs. Like your water bottle, house keys and money. You just put it into your suitcase. The possibilities of Luggage Running are endless. And don’t worry about your stuff rattling around in a big suitcase. Just use the packing straps inside to keep everything in place or use the front pocket of your suitcase.
If you take a trip you might even run to the airport instead of using a cab!
Luggage: size and weight
Luggage comes in different sizes and weights. For the confident, strong armed runner I recommend a weighty spinner case. But if you’re just starting out as a luggage runner, I recommend choosing a light weight trolley. Just until you find your footing.
Luggage: the right look
Take some time in choosing a suitcase that matches your personality. Some suitcases just scream ‘Granny!’ Like this one:
Now compare the Granny trolley to this one:
See the difference?
Put some luggage on your Christmas list
I’m hoping to get Luggage Running into the Olympics soon.
In the meantime, don’t forget to put trolley suitcase sets for your Christmas holidays on your wishlist for Santa!
