Running Gear

Pin It
Having the right gear is so important for a good run.  You don't want to be worried about something sliding around, being uncomfortable, not fitting correctly, etc. - You have better things to think about during your run!

Here are the clothes I wear for a run:

Spi Belt
A carrier case that fits around your waist with adjustable straps.  The mesh pocket is stretchy and allows you to fit a ton of stuff: iPhone, keys, chapstick. 
The belt is pretty comfortable, I strapped it around my waist and under my shirt.  There wasn't alot of movement, which I was worried about.  I still need to figure out the tight-ness of the belt, at certain points during my run it was a little uncomfortable.  But overall I recommend it, I think it's important for us ladies to have a phone with us on runs, you never know!

Ever since I got in to running 3 years ago I have worn Brooks running shoes.  The fit good and they are light weight.  I highly recommend checking out your local Big Peach Running Company to find the right shoe. 

Who would have thought Old Navy would have good Bras!  I love these adjustable strap sports bras, they are comfortable and provide plenty of support.

Champion Capris
I wear these capris for everything - Spinning, Yoga, Walking, Running - they are so comfortable.
Champion Athletic Tank
This tank is a lightweight mesh material with more of a loose fit.  I don't like built-in bras or super tight tanks so this is perfect for me!
I love this app - thanks Christina for telling me about it!  The app tracks your route and gives you updates every mile.  It scared me at first when all of the sudden my Spi-Belt was talking to me saying, "1 mile completed, 11 minutes 3 seconds". 

I also wear a baseball hat on my runs.  This keeps my hair out of my face and the sun out of my eyes.

What is some of your favorite running gear?

Happy Running!
