Five Favorite Running Items Right Now

Happy Friday! I am linking up with Eat Pray Run DCMar on the Run, and You Signed Up for What?! for their Friday Five Linkup. This weeks topic is favorites. I’ve decided to write about my five favorite running items right now.

  1. Gloves – Gloves are a lifesaver. My hands get so cold easily since it’s colder out and gloves keep my hands warm and protected. These Nike running gloves work great. 
  2. Beanie – I always wear a hat when I run but when it’s really cold out I wear a beanie like this so my ears are covered. 
  3. Running Vest – I like wearing a vest since it keeps me warm without getting too hot. I got this one for Christmas and love how it’s so reflective. It’s the Sugoi Zap Run Vest.
  4. Garmin Vivoactive – It’s still my favorite running watch. I tried the Garmin Forerunner 235 and didn’t like it as much as the Vivoactive. Here’s a link to my Vivoactive review I did a while back.  
  5. LifeBeam Hat – I really love this hat since it’s my heart rate monitor. There’s no need to wear a chest strap so its awesome! It pairs with my Garmin too.

  1. I have the same pair of Nike gloves and love them. That reflective vest is amazing and is perfect for early morning and night runs, plus it is so attractive! I wear the ugly yellow reflective vests, but that is so much nicer.


  2. I’ve never heard of a hat that’s also your heart rate monitor! Very cool! I wear hats a lot in summer so may need to look into that. My fingers are always popsicles, so I always have to wear two gloves–usually a pair of gloves and mittens over top–so they don’t freeze to the point that they fall off!


  3. I misplaced my gloves a week ago and its been a tough week running without them ! I need a new pair… I have looked everywhere. And it going to be cold tomorrow. Shame on me.


  4. Oh, I hadn’t heard of that hat – very cool. I bought an Athleta running vest and am loving it! It is just right so I’m not freezing when I start or boiling mid-run,


  5. I just blogged about my favorite running items, too. I’m in Iowa, and it gets cold here in the winter, but I prefer a vest over a coat. Like you said, it keeps me warm without the extra bulk.
