My Favorite Running Gear

My Favorite Running Gear

Hydration Vest: Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta I prefer the reservoir (purchased separately) instead of the body bottles that come with the vest.

Skirts: SparkleSkirts I wasn’t sure I would like running in a skirt, but it is comfortable. The shorts are long enough for me and don’t ride-up. The pockets are what really make the skirt a favorite of mine for races. I can carry so much in them. The first time I wore the skirt, I had taken an Uber to a run, not sure what I was going to do with the included tank top I picked up before the run. I was able to fold it and fit it into one of the pockets!

Shoes: I’m a Brooks lover. With the exception of one pair of Mizuno Wave Riders several years ago, I have only run in Brooks. I’m a neutral runner, and Brooks Glycerin has been a great shoe for me throughout several versions of the shoe.

Socks: Feetures! are my preferred sock while running. I like the no show tab socks (cushion level depending on shoe) for running on most days. On cold days, I wear the Merino+ quarter length socks. For recovery, I like PRO Compression Socks. They seem to hold up better than other compression socks I have tried, and they are available in a lot of fun colors.
