It's still chilly in the mornings where I'm at, so I carry them in the zip pockets of my tech jacket / running shell / whatever you want to call it. I also have one of those reflective belts that has a zip pocket for phone, keys, ID, that sort of thing. Here's a pic of it on Nathan Sports' website: http://www.nathansports.com/our-products/runners-paks-music-carriers/runners-paks/reflective-belt
It's nice because it holds stuff securely in place, and you don't have to worry about the pack bouncing around while you run. It's also reflective, which is one reason why I bought it - I need more reflective material on me for my predawn runs.
There are other running belts you can get that hold small bottles of water and/or gelpacks too. I bought mine at Sports Authority, and they had several different kinds there.

I have one of those little pouches that velcro close that you loop under your shoelaces. I picked it up at a local running store - they have various shapes and sizes for different things. Since most cars are keyless entry nowadays, you can't just pin it to the inside of your shorts and be done with it!
I just tie my key to my sneakers. I also have shorts (from Old Navy) that have a small pocket on the inside, that holds a house key or car key perfectly.

i have several shorts with pockets.. but I dont trust them.. but i do have a pair of brooks shorts that has a zippered pocket for keys and that works fine. Other than that I have my keys on a carabiner like the one below. Right before I get out of the car to run I take out the car key (VW folding key) and leave the rest in the car. I put my index finger through the folding keys loop and i carry it that way. It gives me something to play with and focus on too.. i get distracted easily.

I highly recommend ifitness belt http://www.ifitnessinc.com/index.php?_a=viewCat&catId=10 . You can put keys, cell phones, IDs, money, gels, etc... its very comfortable you won't even notice when running and it doesn't bounce.
I normally don't carry a key when I run near my home, but I deliberately bought shorts with pockets for when I race. For my last 5K, I Iocked anything I didn't want to carry with me in my car, and took only one key in my pocket. I saftey pinned the key into my pocket so I wouldn't lose it.

I usually put my key in my sports bra. Most of my work out pants don't have pockets and those that do usually fall while i walk/run if i place keys in there.
If I put the keys in my sports bra. there's a slim chance of my keys getting lost.

I am used to hide my door keys in a secret place around my house, and I will not carry the keys with me. Because the key are heavy and annoying me when I was running.
I wear mine on a lanyard around my neck.
