This was my very first running apparel purchase. I was training for a half marathon and the weather was turning cooler. I needed something better than my ratty gym shorts. At the time I was appalled by the price, but they ended up being a great investment. You'll find them in most of my cool weather race pics Still Today - Six Years Later.
I noticed my feet cramped when I ran double digits so I purchased this pair of socks. That's a very tight compression band around the arch. I wore them religiously and still do quite often, especially in cold weather. I later bought another pair but they gave me huge blisters. Go figure. This pair I treat like gold.
This is my current favorite second breakfast each day. Zone Perfect Bars have more protein than some other brands.
I love arm warmers. I'm not a fan of racing in long sleeve shirts if I can help it. There are so many cute patterns to choose from. I've got two more pairs ordered right now. Don't tell my husband.
Have you tried the new Triple Zero line by Oikos? Finally, a Greek yogurt that's not too sweet. It's my typical afternoon snack.
So tell me -- do you have any tried and true favorites?
Is anybody racing this weekend?
