8 Accessories for Running


Clif Kid Z Bar

I’ve had a lot of pre-workout fuel, but I always come back to Clif Kid ZBars. These filled ones are great! The apple filled with almond butter surprised me on taste. I was a bit worried about it, but they are so good. But I will have to say the double peanut butter are the best! So delicious. It sits well on the stomach and is a perfect little snack before my run. 

Running Mug

I’m loving Sarah Marie Design Studio and this mug! You more than likely drink coffee and whether it is before your run or after your run, this mug is perfect. 

Yurbuds Wireless Leap


These are the wireless headphones I use and will not change for a long time. Yurbuds don’t fall out of your ear and I love them being wireless so I don’t have to be “wired” in, but also because then I can leave my phone at home and run with just my Apple Nike Watch.

Apple Nike Watch

I love this Apple Nike Watch. Before this watch I had the Garmin Forerunner 235, which I’ll link next in case you aren’t one for Apple products. But this Apple watch is great because I’m connected to everything. I can use it throughout the day as my tracker and receive notifications and then when I’m ready to run, I can throw my headphones on and listen to music from my watch and leave the phone at home. I love this watch. 

Garmin Forerunner 235

The Garmin Forerunner 235 is great if you are looking for an activity tracker, text message alerts and a overall great running watch. I switched to Nike because I didn’t like how the vibration on the plastic felt for alerts and then since I have an Iphone, I wanted it to all be compatible together. Plus I’m not a runner that has planned workouts anymore, so I don’t need the fancy features on running watches for laps, tempos, fartleks etc. But I recommend this watch for those who are runners with planned workouts.

Running Sweatshirt

Like I said, I’m loving Sarah Marie Design Studio. Once you’re done with your run you might get cold when you sweat dries and you’ll want a nice cozy sweatshirt. Or you have showered and you want it to wear after. Either way, these are such cute designs! 

Pro-Tec Ice Up

I’ve talked about this ice cup on the blog before. This product is great because you can take it with you. I love ice cups because I can massage the area while icing. This provides a cooler pack that surrounds the cup so it will hold it frozen for travel and you can use right after your run. 

Avex Water Bottle

The Avex Stainless Steel Freeflow Autoseal water bottle is my go-to. I have the green one, but have been wanting this ice colored one forever! I just need to save up for it. These bottles are great because you can drop it and it’s durable. It keeps your water cold for over a full day (even though you should be drinking more than that, ha.) But I also love that it won’t spill because you have to hold the button while you drink. 


Those are just some of the items I have been enjoying for my running!

Fit & Flirty NFL Giveaway


I have spent two full weeks in Eugene and we just finished the first week of Fall Camp. One of the perks of being in Sports Nutrition is that I get to work with amazing athletes. I’m lucky to see players make it in the NFL which is exciting. Fit & Flirty is hosting a giveaway and asked me to help advertise it! So read below on what you can win!

I was sent a tank top from Fit & Flirty’s shop and it’s a sweat activated shirt. However, I haven’t sweat enough in it to activate the words yet! But it is super soft and comfortable!

Keep following along because I have more blog posts on the way! And yes, all my muscle gains have been lost, as you can see in this picture. I guess lifting cases of gatorade isn’t an adequate workout….
