Each week Sarah posts about her favorite things and lets us join in on the fun too!
This week, I'm featuring RUNNING GEAR!
I'm a runner. Not always a fast runner or a happy runner, but a runner. I started running to lose weight and because it seemed easy. You just throw on shorts and sneakers and run, right? Well you can, and I did. But then I ran into some not-so fun problems such as chaffing, blisters, getting over heated, more chaffing and more blisters.
So I started by getting some different shorts and that helped. But not as much as my new love, the running skirt. I picked mine up at Target and just LOVE IT! Its cute and keeps me 100% covered! My sister/running partner has one too (she got it for her birthday from me!) and we feel so sassy wearing them to races.
For a wedding gift, Hubby took me to the Running Fit store and bought me a Brooks technical t-shirt and Brooks running socks. Both are pricy, but what a difference they have made!
The tech-T is sweat wicking, so I stay SO much cooler on long, hot runs. Plus it was created for runners, so no more chaffing along the seams.
I think these things made this my best summer of running. Set a new 5k PR (personal record) on 4th of July, then broke it yesterday with a time of 24:57! And started doing 5 mile runs. I love it!
