I'm participating in Stephaine's Pinnable Me Friday again this week!
This week is all about running gear! I love to run! I definitely haven't been running as much as I would like to over the past 3 years, but I still love to go when I get the chance! I've been running on the treadmill a lot this summer, which I hate because I get bored. Hopefully, the cooler weather this fall will bring the motivation I need to get back outside and run!
This is my new running buddy, BOB! :) We got this a few months ago and I cannot tell you how much I love this jogger. It is so easy to push, even with 55lbs of sweet children in it! I went and ran one evening last week when it was almost 100 degrees outside and pushed the kids in the stroller. I was sweating like crazy, but they were perfectly dry and cool under the huge umbrella shades from the stroller. I can't say enough great things about it! There will be many, many miles put on this thing in the future!
I think these are such a great idea! They are ID bracelets that you wear while running. They have your name, address and emergency contact info/numbers on them. Obviously no one goes out running and plans for something to happen to them, but if something ever happened, I think this is an awesome thing to have so that your family could be contacted immediately. These even come in fun girly colors, too! They also make an id plate to put on the top of your shoe if you don't want to wear a bracelet. Best part is they are only $20!
I love these Garmin Forerunner watches. It give you an analysis of your run by keeping up with your overall time, your pace, and your calories burned. It would great if you are training for a race. My friend, Sarah, has something similar (or maybe the same one) that she used when she trained for a relay marathon this spring. I know she really liked using it!
A couple of summers ago, we ran into our friends, Leslie and Blake, when we were out one night. Blake had a new pair of these vibram five finger shoes. I made fun of him so badly! These shoes became a joke between us. Well, last year, Josh ran a 5K and these shoes were everywhere. Now, they are really common and I have decided I would love a pair, a pink pair, of course! I think they are so neat. I wonder how supportive they are though? I only run in ASICS, so I'm used to a lot of cushion when I run. Do any of you have these? If so, I would love to hear your opinion.
