Ok, before you jump up and down, please know that I am not giving away any of the stuff mentioned here. I know... BOO!  But I do promise you that I will, if and when I win the lottery.  LOL!  But wait, some of the stuff here I actually gave away before already.  And some, I will give away soon.  So, stay tuned!

Anyway, here are my ultimate favorite running gear...

 1. My Garmin Forerunner 305 - I'm a data freak!

2. My CW-X Stabilyx Tights - ultimate leg and back support.

3. KT Tape - my best-friend...

3. My RoadID - Better safe than sorry.

4. Mizuno Nirvana 5 - these helped my overpronation. I actually won this pair at an expo.

5.  Fuel Belt - Afraid to go thristy.

30 Days of Thanks (Day 22)

I am thankful for my future sisters-in-law.  I have 3: an astounding artist, a big-hearted teacher, and a bada** tennis player with whom I am very close to.  They are my sisters at heart! We have soooo much fun together and I love them dearly!   I don't think a lot of people can say that about their sisters-in-law.  Yes, I am truly blessed to have them in my life.



  1. LOVE your list! I would die without my glade, shot blocks and nike tempo shorts.

  2. Love this. I'm asking for a Garmin for Christmas. Which one should I get if I'm just using it for running and not needing the heart rate?? I also love KT tape! Thanks for entering my giveaway!

  3. Great list! Also, can't live without my Garmin. My faves are my Lululemon Groovy Run shorts, and Brooks Launch shoes!

  4. I'm with you on the Garmin and I definitely need a new pair running tights - the ones you posted look like good ones - will check them out!

  5. i love my
    1. garmin
    2. handheld water bottle
    3. lululemon blue and white top (that i wore to my marathon)
    4. underarmour compression shorts
    5. compression socks!

    actually i love all running things!

  6. I love my Garmin, too. And am considering getting those compression tights - good to hear they really help!

  7. Great list! Love the picture with the Garmin ... true love. I'm with you on the Garmin, RoadID, and Body Glide. I'm intrigued by the KT Tape. Saw LOTS of it on people at the marathon I just ran. Need to do some research into this as something that might help my knee.

    I'd have to add my FuelBelt to the list of favorite gear. Bought it reluctantly, but it's a lifesaver.

  8. your legs long looks like Nicole Kidman's in those shorts!!!

    favorite gear: my Itouch with Nike + app....dont have garmin yet.
    So this has to do for now, love hearing Lance Armstrong giving me my updates!!!

  9. All fabulous picks! I am currently in love with my Nike thermal half zips!

  10. I'm getting a 305 for xmas, we'll be like Wonder Twins!

  11. Great list!!

    I love my Nike + system and the hat I got for finishing the Jersey Shore half - not only is it made excellent light, mesh, breathable but every time I put it on to run it reminds me of that accomplishment and makes me happy.

  12. My favorite run item these days is Karen's Saucony Headband Trucker Hat.....and I now own it and run all the time in it. It stink, I wash it and good as new although I do need to find a new one soon.

  13. You should get commission! I just ordered a pair of those tights and the KT tape. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I don't have a garmin, so my favorite running item is my phone. I use the runkeeper app to record my pace/run/etc and the calorie-count/myfatsecret app to record my food for the day.

  14. I love your list! Some of my favorite running things are my Garmin, yurbuds, brooks st 4 racers, saucony long sleeve shirt, and my visor!

  15. Love photo #1. It's like "runner's porn". ;)

    Love my arm warmers!!!!!! ;)

  16. Love your list! What does the tape do? I saw several people with it at the half...

  17. I thought I was the only one who worke a visor! Mine is also Nike, but in white!

  18. Great post! I have been following your blog for a while!

    Your favorite things are so key--totally needed my Glide, Nike tempo shorts and water belt during marathon training...I'm still searching for the ultimate long distance bra though!!

  19. Oh yes, they do make your legs look long...but I think they probably are long...:) My favorite is my New Balance cap. Keeps me cool and the sweat out of my eyes.

  20. That is a good question. To be honest, I really don't know. If I would have to answer, it is my Timex Ironman watch. To tight to go out and get a Garmin. Will wait another 10 years, like the last 10 years. lol. By then, who knows what they will have, but I wouldn't mind having one of those. Yeah, def my watch. It doesn't lie or play games with me. It's honest and straight forward.

  21. super cute post!! I have wonder about those cwx pants, good to know they work

  22. I wear my LIVESTRONG band all the time too! Rock on!
