I do all my trail runs with a water bottle.  Keeps hydrated, and serves for strength training at the same time.  Can't hurt, I guess.  Weight? 20 oz of water plus the plastic.

I do the same thing as Jon for hydration purposes, but why not do one set of push-ups and chin-ups until u can't complete a full rep after the run instead? If it's strength u are after that is.
