On Tuesday I shared my Half Marathon Training plan with you, so I thought it would be fun to follow up with some of my favorite training gear. Over the years I have found brands that I love and have created somewhat of a uniform for when I run/exercise.
For as long as I can remember, I have been a loyal Asics customer, but I haven't be happy with my most recent pair. I've been thinking of trying something new, but will have to find a running store to get recommendations. I have a fairly high arch and I pronate, so I need a stable and supportive running shoe. I love the look of Nike shoes like I've linked here, but I'm not sure if they're supportive enough. What are your favorite running shoes?
My favorite running capris are Sugoi, they have a higher waist which I love. I must be getting old because I can't stand low rise pants. These have great stretch, aren't too thin, and have a nice little zipper pocket for your keys. I also love Lucy capris, but I find it's better to size down otherwise they start to sag a bit when running. My friend had these that I thought were so cute and I love how there is a pocket for your phone, but I haven't been able to justify the price tag.
As for tops, these The North Face/Mountain Athletics tank tops are the best. I love that they're loose but not too baggy. They are the softest material and so comfortable. I can't say enough good things about them. I think I have about 7 now because I stopped wearing anything else, call me obsessed.
I'm usually cold when I run, especially on foggy mornings here in the city, so I love half zip jackets like this. I couldn't find my favorite one that is made by Lole, but this Under Armor one looks similar. I also have this R1 Patagonia that I love and wear often.
I'm also in the market for a new pair of headphones and something to carry my phone. I've considered wireless headphones because I often find the cord annoying, but those are pretty pricey. Do you have any you recommend? And to carry my phone, I've looked at a belt like this but maybe I should just bite the bullet on those running capris with a pocket?
What are your favorite athletic brands?
