My Favorite Running Accessories

“These are a few of my favorite things.”

Let’s talk running gear! My 1/2 marathon is in FOUR DAYS, y’all! So, I’ve recently invested in some new accessories.

First up: Lululemon Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Tee. I usually don’t buy lululemon (it’s so friggin’ expensive!) but I had a gift card to use, and now I may be hooked. This shirt is soft, breathable, stretchy, and is made with technology that stops odor-causing bacteria. I can run miles and miles in this and not feel hot, sweaty, or stinky! Definitely my favorite running shirt that I own. Although the price tag was $68. Ouch. However, it was so worth it!

Next up: Lululemon Train Times 7/8 Pant. Basically same as the shirt description above plus they stay put. These were a staggering $98 and I definitely had to cough up the extra cash as I spent more than my gift card allowed. Oops. Again, worth it.

Two things about Lululemon: Their stuff runs small. A size 2 is an XXS, size 4 is XS… etc. So don’t be discouraged when your normal size doesn’t fit you! Also, be sure to read the washing instructions on the tag.

I’ve had the Fitbit Blaze about a year now, and it’s been a great motivator to exercise and get moving. However, just recently I’ve noticed it doesn’t record my running distance perfectly, and the battery has been dying quickly, so I’m going to have to contact their costumer service, who is always very helpful. Just got the Fitbit Flyer wireless headphones, and I love them! Sweatproof, 6 hours playtime, and comfy.

Just bought the Brooks Women's Glycerin 15 Running Shoes, and my feet sure are happy. They have the support that I need without being too heavy, so they are perfect for long distance running.

Water bottle is from my Fab Fit Fun box… I love this subscription! The box is full of stuff ranging from jewelry to makeup to workout accessories.

PHEW!That was a lot but I hope it was helpful! What are your favorite workout accessories?
