Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup. Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
My “favorite” topic for this Friday is My Favorite Running Items (things that I couldn’t run without.)
- a Skirt
I never run in shorts and when it is too cold for a skirt, I wear one over capris or tights.
2. A race belt
I always carry my phone when I run and my belt holds it. I can also attach my bib to it so I don’t need safety pins.
This is my race fuel of choice. I doesn’t bother my stomach so why switch. I don’t like their fruity flavors. I am partial to Salted Caramel, Caramel Macchiato, Rootbeer, etc.
4. Comfortable running shoes (with a wide toe box)
I tried them all and my favorite brand changes. It was Brooks Adrenaline at one point and then I loved Mizuno Wave Rider 18s. Now I’m wearing Nikes (AIR ZOOM VOMERO 10).
5. Garmin GPS Watch
I have the 205 – the old big one and I still love it – it shows everything I want on ONE screen. No hitting any buttons. I’ll be sad when it dies.
Happy Running! What are your favorite running items?
