A Layer for Every Type of Weather: Running Gear We all need

A little product review for you, outlining my favorite running products:


Saucony Women’s X-Lite Packable Jacket, Vizipro Coral, Small

I love this jacket for dreary or rainy mornings because it breathes well and keeps me relatively dry.


Hat: Underarmour Undeniable Adjustable Hat. Great for super sunny or rainy conditions:

Similar here: 2XU Run Visor, Blazing Orange/Charcoal, One Size Fits All


Long sleeves: Nike Miller Long sleeveNike Miler Long-SleeveA nice layer for cooler races and training runs, available here:

Tank: Lululemon Athletica Cool Racerback

Cool Racerback

This is the most comfortable tank on the market, and the fabric wicks very well


Sports Bra: Brooks Versatile Bra: medium to high impact support, breathes well, doesn’t cut in anywhere it shouldn’t.

I’m a huge Balega believer. These socks significantly cut down on my blisters, they wick well and are very comfortable. Well worth the money!

This watch comes with the heartrate monitor which has proven to be an excellent training tool.

Running belt: Nathan Gel Pack

This handy fellow holds my iphone, up to 3 gels, and ID on long training runs. This has very little jostle, and is fairly comfortable all things considered.

Shoes: Brooks PureConnect2

I cannot say enough about these shoes. I’m on my 4th pair and I will continue to run in them as long as they make them. A lightweight minimalist shoe, this has been my greatest running discovery yet.

Fuel support: GU Energy Gel in Vanilla Bean

Product Details

For training runs longer than 13 miles, this is my fuel source of preference. These are available in 12 flavors, thought the vanilla and chocolate are the only flavors that my stomach will tolerate, and this is the only brand that I use as it is gluten free, and I have had good success thus far digesting them. Note: they recommend a gel 15 min. before exericse and every 45 minutes during, and I do not follow those guidelines as I do not need nearly that many calories. I generally take one gel every hour during long runs.

So that is it my friends, my favorites from top to bottom. What are you running in?

Make your day great!
