I usually carry phone, keys, and food in my shorts pockets. I don't carry first aid. I have the handheld bottles with the pouches which fit Gels and salt pills. GPS is just a watch.
Even though I have a pretty strong back for a runner, wearing a pack tends to hurt my back after awhile but my arms never get tired carrying stuff in my hand.
