I would buy a monopod, an umbrella adapter, and a 24" umbrella then mount my flash on the monopod with the umbrella and hold it with my left hand while shooting with my right.  It is all there in Lighting101 on David Hobby's Strobist blog.

I really appreciate the feedback and the time taken, but honestly have you ever seen pro photographers at run events roaming around with umbrellas? me not, and the other night was no exception. yes they had monopods but on camera flash with diffuser or ring

Set yourself apart and get better images by using that umbrella.
