My Go-To Running Gear

Tees: Under Armour HeatGear Fitted Tee (Amazon)

I love these tees for summer running. Light and longer so they hit AT the hip rather than above. I much prefer to wear a full shirt or none at all. TTS

Sports Bra: Nike Women’s Pro Swoosh Medium-Support Padded Sports Bra (Dick’s Sporting Goods)

I know these are called padded, but really it’s just an insert to avoid any nip slips. I find them just supportive enough for long runs or speed workouts without being constricting like I can’t breathe.

Plus, the design makes them seem more like tops vs. bras in the summer when I run without a shirt. (More pics of how that looks that here, here and here.)

Fit: For sizing, decide based on your bra size vs. shirt size. (Example: I am a medium shirt, but a large in these bras.)

Colors Owned: Black, Verulian Blue, Coral Chalk (pink), Biotech (purple), White.

Pants: Light N Tight High Rise (Zyia Active)

This brand & style are the ONLY running leggings I wear. Just the right amount of compression without feeling restricted. The fun prints are amazing and change out seasonally. TTS

I wear the 24″ in winter (I’m 5’3″) since they come to my ankles and 20″ are more mid-calf for summer.

Saucony Women Endorphin Pro 3

Shoes: Endorphin Pro 3 (Saucony)

Since I first disdcovered the Endorphin Pro in 2019 I have worn them exclusively, versions 2 and 3, for training and racing alike.  I LOVE how much cushion they have and yet still plenty of bounce and return with the carbon plating.

I go up a half size to ensure there is no tightening as my feet swell in a race (or rain). Wider toe box is ideal for those of us without a super narrow foot.

Colors Owned: Red/Rose, Black Goldstruck x2, Invader (Green) x2, Hot Pink x2

inspirational socks

Socks: Gone for a Run Inspiration Athletic Socks (Amazon)

So comfortable and come in packs of 3 with different phrases on each.

Nathan Vapor Swift Running Vest

Vest: Men’s Vapor Swift 4 Liter Race Vest (Nathan)

I opted to get the men’s vest instead of women’s based on the fit across the bust. The straps on the women’s version cut right across my bust, which was very uncomfortable in the store, nevertheless for hours on a run.

The placement of the straps on the men’s is much more comfortable for those of us with a bigger bust. (I wear a D cup bra.)  This photos shows placement over a shirt.

Build a Snowman Garmin

Watch: Garmin Forerunner 255 Music (Garmin)

This watch has been a game-changer for my training. Great data, clear screen and super lightweight. I wear it all day.
