I am by no means an expert on running or the gear that people use but I just wanted to share the things that I love. I was clueless when I started running and hadn’t discovered the online running community yet. I bought so many things on the basis of trial and error. Over the years, I’ve figured out what seems to work for me. However I still love to read and learn what other runners use, I would have never found some of the things I love if it hadn’t been for other social media posts. Also a huge shout out BibRave for letting me try new things!
So without further ado-
What does the Slacker Run With?
Shoes– Can’t run without those!
Brooks Pure Flow, Nike Free Rn Distance, Under Armour Horizon RTT– Actually, this is a bit of a mess right now. Check back later. 😝
Under Armour Horizon RTT– For those times I want to hit the trails.
Bottoms– I never thought I would run in a skirt but I gave it a shot and they rock. My favorites are both by Lululemon – Pace Rival II and Pleat to Street. I thought the pleats would drive me batty but then I discovered that there are 5 pockets. 5! I love Rabbit crops for colder days. And their Leg Lite Longish are pretty sweet shorts.
I am rarely without my Orange Mud Gear Vest Pro or Gear Vest. Even on short runs when I am not carrying hydration, I have the pack for my inhaler, my pepper spray and phone. Also usually a spare pair of socks because you never know, right?
I also love the Orange Mud handheld. It comes with a 21oz bottle but I am horrible about keeping track of it. I’ve been able to fit most any water bottle in the sleeve though.
Sunglasses– Knockarounds! I have really poor eyesight and issues handling too much brightness so shades are a must. I also tend to destroy sunglasses very quickly. I love Knockarounds. Polarized, very affordable and awesome looking too? Score!
My iPhone. Never leave home without it. One it plays my music and most important- I can call for help if needed. Plus I tend to take too many pictures. 🙂
Road ID– I don’t carry my ID when I run. I misplace my debit card all the time, my license would probably run away just as quick. This bracelet has my name, 2 emergency contacts and any medical alerts I might need them to know. Stylish and smart all at the same time. 😃
Pepper spray– Always be prepared. You never know what you may run into.
