Since I mentioned my “running favorites” in my giveaway last week, I thought it would be fun (and useful) to actually make a list of all my favorite running essentials. It could also be titled my “I don’t go running without them” list.
In order to keep the post at an acceptable length, I am breaking it up into two parts – the gear and the clothes. Today is the gear!
On My Head
I always have a hat on my head!
This time of year when it’s dark when I am running, I always have my headlamp with me so I can see and so cars and people can see me. I have had other headlamps and this one works the best!
On My Wrist
Garmin 205 and my RoadID.
I always have both on my wrist. Always.
My Garmin keeps my stats and I love it. I love the 205 because the screen is big, it’s easy to use and is reliable. Even if it broke today, I would buy another 205 vs. a newer model.
My RoadID has all my information attached to me and I think it’s something every runner and cyclist should wear.
Around My Waist
Holds my phone, key, camera (when I take it) and fuel, AND keeps them safe from water. The most important part though is that it stays put and doesn’t bounce or drive me insane!
On My Feet
I love running socks with a lot of cushion and these are my go to socks.
After my beloved Asics Kayano 15s were discontinued, I switched over to the 2150s and have loved them! Now that they are discontinued, I will have to find a new love yet again. *sigh*
Those are my favorite pieces of “gear” that I typically don’t go running without and yes music was purposefully left off the list!
What would you add to this list?
And what you have all been waiting for… the winners of my Headsweats Hats giveaway, which also happens to be one of my running essentials are:
