This week’s topic is Running oldies but goodies. Gear you’d buy all over again.
I haven’t been running for that long – only seriously since 2010 but here’s my list (Sorry if you have heard it all before):
- My Garmin 205 Watch
I bought it in 2011 right before my first half marathon. Back then 305/205 was the norm and now runners look and laugh at its size. I still love it because it shows everything I want on ONE screen. I don’t have to hit any buttons. I’ll be sad when it kicks the bucket.
- My SpiBelt
After breaking my ankle and not having my phone on me, I vowed to always carry it, no matter what. That’s where my SpiBelt comes in handy. It fits my phone, even my new iphone 6s. And for races, no more trying to get your bib pinned on straight. It has hangers to attach my bib to it.
- Compression Socks
I wore my first pair for my first half in 2011 and I haven’t looked back since. I think they have helped my legs recover better but I don’t want to not wear them to find out.
I have since switched to compression sleeves when it is warm & humid to combat the blister issue.
- Champion Brand jackets & tights & more…
I don’t like to spend a lot on running gear unless I have to. These you can buy at Target and they have served me well.
I have this jacket in 3 colors – cheap, comfortable & warm enough. Same with their tights.
Happy Running! What running items would you buy all over again?
