Use a brief-type jock, and get enough of them to use a fresh one for
every run. They go into the laundry after the run. This can be worn in place
Some more expen$ive running shorts incorporate a cambrelle supporter,
obviating the need to wear anything under them. The "get enough to wear one
for every run" caveat would apply there, too, although they dry out quickly
enough to avoid stinking to high heaven, provided you don't keep them in an
enclosed gym bag between runs.

Can't help there. Two suggestions: contact lenses or a croakies-
style glasses strap to keep your glasses on your head while running.
I underwent LASIK, so I don't have this problem anymore. :-)
