You've done! :-)

an alternative sensor holder is easily found at Staples. It is a $3.99 Case Logic holder for USB thumb drives, and attaches with velcro, or I loop it thru my shoe laces. I have used this kind of holder for 3+ years, and it has held up very well to trail running, in the mud, and surface water. (I live in the PNW). http://www.staples.com/Case-Logic-2-Capacity-USB-Drive-Shuttle/product_616825?cmArea=SEARCH

This is a great idea. Can you give more detail as to what kind of tubing you used that is able to stretch large enough to encompass the sensor? Thanks!
