My running essentials

24 Aug

Here is a list of some of my favorite running gear…

Shoes: Saucony Hurricanes or Asics 2120’s

Music: iPod shuffle loaded with rock, hip hop, and anything upbeat!

Socks: Balega Enduro Lo Cut

Watch: Garmin Forerunner 205 (this is a must have!!! i love it & recommend it to all runners.)

Energy: Caramel Nut Blast Balance Bars, S’mores Zone Bars, and Plain PowerBar Gel

H2O: Smart Water

This morning as I ran my ten miler, I once again referred back to a quote I read recently that has really helped me get through some of my long runs recently.  We all tried to take this advice in San Fran as well.

Ryan Hall, an Olympic marathon runner, said, “Focus on the moment. I avoid thinking about how far I have to go early in the race, because that can be overwhelming. Late in the race I try to forget about how far I have gone, because that would give me an excuse to give in to fatigue.”

We start training next week for our next 1/2 marathon…Dallas White Rock in December!
