First of all...
IT'S FREAKING MARCH!
In just 26 days, it will be Spring Break and then there will be light at the end of the tunnel... We'll probably have one more snowstorm before then and lose our Spring Break to snow makeup days... but I'm getting ahead of myself!
Today I'm going to give you an update on some of the new running gear I have purchased within the past couple months.
**Note: The price in the links do not always reflect the price I paid for the item, but it is within a couple dollars.**
Initially, I was annoyed by these headphones because they don't stay on my ears unless my headband or buff is wrapped around them. That's fine for running in cold weather, but what about when I'm walking around Aldi, or cleaning the house, or just sitting at the dining room table doing a puzzle?
I ended up giving the headphones to my brother to try out and keep. I bought two pairs of my old headphones that are $7.00. They wrap around my ears perfectly and always stay in place. I just can't wear them on my runs when it's super duper cold or the wire freezes. On those days, I don't wear headphones and blast my phone from my pocket.
My hydration pack is a Northface Sailfin and I've been using it for nearly ten years. When my bladder finally bit the dust, I purchased a Nathan bladder that was recommended to me by my running pals. I love how the top of it folds over- way better than screwing on a lid. Also, the nozzle to suck water out of does not need to be turned to the side to work. You just suck the water out and that's the end of the story. Love it!
3. Garmin Forerunner 35. I am so glad to have a new Garmin! It does so much more than my old dinosaur did. Also, I am glad I got this model. I personally don't need anything fancier than the bells and whistles this one has.
4. Sacouny Peregrine trail shoes. After the Squirrelly Tail Twail Wun, I can honestly say I LOVE these shoes and they didn't let me down on crazy terrain. So thankful to find ones I like on the first try!
I'm still in the market for WARM running tights since I only have one pair. Since it's March, maybe I'll be able to find some on sale!
