Favorite Must Have Running Items!

These are my must haves:

Must have compression/spandex shorts:

I love the Brook’s Revelation Sprinter Shorts


For thin socks and regular daily socks I love Asics Sorbtek Socks. They basically mold to my feet and I love that because I hate having extra sock baggage in my shoe while running.

For thick socks I love the Thorlo Experia Socks because they are padded and feel like you are stepping on clouds.


For recovery I love using Zensah leg compression sleeves and Pro Tec‘s Ice Up massager and Roller Massager

The Roller Massager can be seen with the other accessories above.

Right now since it’s cold I love Nike‘s Lightweight gloves and Asics Arm Warmers.

I love Nathans Aluminum Water Bottle because you don’t have to suck on the straw like with the camelback water bottles. It’s effortless and keeps your water even colder!!

Amphipod Belt seen above is great for when I am going out alone and can take my phone as well as my keys and ID. Fits a ton more stuff such as my ipod! Doesn’t bounce either. Tends to ride up some, but not much.


For racing I wear Saucony Grid Fastwitch 3 Road Flats

ForΒ  training I absolutely love Asics Gel Cumulus. I just switched to the 11’s from the 10’s recently and they are both great!!

Please excuse the mud πŸ™‚


My two favorite running books so far are:

50/50 by Dean Karnazes

Ultra Marathon Man by Dean Karnazes

My life on the Run by Bart Yasso

One thing I can’t run without!!
