I have a few favorite running things…
First are my Rabbit running shorts; Mountain Climbers. Can you say pockets?! One of the worst things about being a woman are pants or shorts with no pockets. I don’t just mean running shorts, I mean everyday casual shorts and pants too. The Mountain Climbers boast one back zip pocket (fits my phone) two gel front pockets, two side pockets and two back ones with Velcro closures. They have held trash, gels, jerkey, gloves, my phone, and other random small nutritional ziploc bags.
My Orange Mud Hydraquiver is another product I really love. Here is a review I wrote about it. For shorter, faster races I dislike hydration bladders and I wanted a water bottle, but not one around my waist that pressed on my midsection and made me feel uncomfortable. I was at a race and saw a woman wearing a Hydraquiver and inquired about it. I went home, looked it up and ordered one! Its great! I also have a coupon code, its wispfriends. For longer races or adventure runs I really like the Endurance Pack from Orange Mud. Here is my review of the pack.
Lily Trotters Compression socks also! I love them for travel, sitting in the car to long races, flying in air planes, or even on the way home from a long training run…a little compression around your calves, ankles and feet makes for much less sore and stiff legs the next day! LTAMRK is a code for 15% off!
