I know a lot of runners who hate to shop. Shopping takes time away from what we loved to do… RUN! So, I did the leg work for you. I have compiled my list of favorite run gear. These are products my friends and I have used before and really like. I have also read many reviews from running magazines, other customers who have purchased these items and consumer reports. Like I said…I did the leg work for you.
So, without further delay… Here is my list of favorite run gear. I hope you like these products too.
Sport Recovery Sandal
There is nothing quite like taking your running shoes of after a really long sweaty run and slipping on a pair of OOFOS recovery sandals. So comfortable for tired feet and they let your toes breath freely to air out all that sweatiness.
OOFOS come in many different styles and colors.
Nathan Trail Mix
This is the best hydration pack, in my opinion. It is the one I used to train for my marathon. I love it. There are pockets at the front to easily reach nutrition and cell phone. It is light weight. There is room in the back for bigger things, like clothes when you get hot. It is also great for hiking.
This hydration backpack also comes in grey and safety orange.
Runner Personal Alarm
Runners, especially women, can be harassed and attacked on runs. This adjustable, reflective and weather-resistant alarm can be worn on the wrist like a watch. When in danger, simply pull the pin to set off a very loud alarm. It alerts others and scares away attackers.
Body Glide Anti Chafe Balm
A must have product for anyone running further than 3 miles. Body Glide is a non-sticky anti-blister and chaffing balm. I use it strategically to prevent rubbing when I run. I also use it on my face in the winter to prevent wind burn. It is great to use on sunglasses to prevent them from fogging up. Apply it to the lens, then buff until clear again.
Extra Thick Yoga Mat
with Carrying Strap
I looked all over for a nice and thick yoga mat. Finally they made one! Floor exercises and yoga just got a little more comfortable with this extra thick mat. Simply roll up and use the handy carry strap to go to your next fitness class.
This mat comes in other colors too.
