This week’s Wednesday Wonderfulz has a theme: Running Gear. Fitnessmomwinecountry and I are sharing our favorites!

These are a few of my favorites, but the only thing you really have to have are running shoes!
First off: shirts and shorts. I recommend sweat wicking. I got this Nike top at TJ Maxx for a great price. I prefer compression shorts over wind type shorts. The compression shorts keep my legs from rubbing together. Some brands even have zipper pockets in them. My favorite right now are the Under Armour ones, I get them from Sports Authority. I also have a pair from JC Penney in their Xersion brand.
Next up is shoes and socks. Everyone has their favorite shoe and you should get fitted for the shoe that’s right for you. I personally wear Asics and have been for about 1.5 years. My current favorite socks are the Feetures brand.
Headbands. Some people wear hats, I mostly prefer a headband. Bondi Band is my favorite year round. In the winter it can cover my ears to help keep them warm. But in the summer when I don’t need that I like the thin head bands, there are several companies that make them.
Sports bras: My current favorite is one from Champion at Target. Next favorite is Handful, and actually I’ve been wearing that more as a “weekend” bra instead of for running. They are so comfortable. That’s something you really can’t skimp on either. 🙂
There are a few other accessories I use. Since I run in the dark unless I’m racing I carry a Knuckle Light, I highly recommend it. I also use a Nathan hand held water bottle a lot these days and a SpiBelt to put my phone, ID and car key in. As long as I have it tight enough it doesn’t bounce. I wear it a lot and sometimes it gets loose.
So, those are my favorites these days. There are lots of extras like GPS watches, iPods, headphones, but none of those are really necessary in order to run.
