My Go To Running Kit

We all have our favourite bits of running kit so I thought I’d do a post about some of the things I can not run without.

parkrun barcode band

On every run I wear my parkrun wristband. As you can see in the picture it has your ICE (In case of emergency) details on as well as any allergy information. Whilst I don’t have any allergies, I wear my band just in case anything should happen. At least that way if someone found me, they’d be able to contact my husband.

Flipbelt

I also always wear my FlipBelt which I bought at the National Running Show earlier this year. I chose the reflective design to give me that extra bit of “being seen” on dark night/morning runs. I honestly don’t even notice I’m wearing it. I put in my phone, as well as my keys on to the key loop which gives me extra security.

Goodr Sunglasses

Beer

These have been an absolute godsend! I know they seem to be a bit of a craze at the moment and everyone has a pair but they’re really that good. They have a special coating on the frames which prevents them from slipping. At first I was dubious, I sweat a lot, I thought they were bound to slip. I was pleasantly surprised to find they don’t budge.

Hoka Trainers

I only run in Hokas. They’re my go to trainer brand. The soles are like pillows. They give amazing cushioning and support. I know some people don’t like them, but I love them!

Do you have go to running items?

Do you tend to stick to the same brand of trainers?

  1. I love my parkrun band too, but I have heard that the new ones don’t scan as well- I really need to get a new one as I changed my name when I got married, but I don’t want to in case it isn’t good at scanning. I would say my Garmin is my fave piece of running kit- I wear it every day as a pedometer so I don’t even need to remember it when I go out running.
    I switch between Mizuno and Asics for trainers- when they change or update the shoe I tend to switch over.
