When I started running a little over a year ago I was stupid enough to believe that the only thing I really needed to be able to run was a pair of decent shoes. It didn’t take me too long to realize how wrong I was.. As months go by my wish list grows longer and longer, and while most of it might be more so wants than needs, there’s nothing stopping me from actually feeling like I do need all those things on that wish list.
At the moment, these are the top items on that wish list:
A shit ton of it! I received a Sample Pack of these bars to review (coming up on the blog very soon!) and let me tell ya.. They are the BOMB when it comes to bars. I do love me some healthy bars to have around for that post run snack or as an in-between meals solution and these ones.. Could get in my belly all. The. Time!
I LOVE natural fabrics and merino is such a wonderful one. Even though I live in Hawaii and deal with mostly hot and humid weather I use merino a lot for running and working out. Merino keeps me comfortable for a long while, won’t cause any chafing for me and it doesn’t get all nasty smelly like some workout clothes get after use. I love the design of this top and know that I’d wear it not just for running but also for everyday wear – got to love that quality when it comes to running gear right?!
There’s no limit to just how much I love the few pieces of Oiselle apparel I have. Oiselle do a great job, creating clothes by women for women. These shorts are some of the best And I need all of the different colors
I’ve got two pair of Injinji socks which I love, but am craving some more of them in different color and maybe even the compression kind? Definitely on the lookout for a good deal on these. Might have to wait for my birthday. Bummer!
Ok ok, I know. I already put another pair of Oiselle shorts on the list, but I CAN NOT stay away from them. I need more of this. Haven’t tried the Stride Shorts out, but am more than willing to take them out on some runs in the future. Need to.
Handheld Water Bottle
I have a 72oz (?!) CamelBak and have been using it for lunger runs (15-17k) before the injury, but now when I’m back to running shorter distances it’s just too much of a hassle and it carries WAY too much water for me to bring it with me. I’m giving in to the thought of having a handheld bottle. I’m on the lookout for one (preferably cheap, with free shipping to Hawaii) to bring along on my runs. The one on the photo is from Amphipod and you can find it right here.
I could keep going for a while, but I think I’d bore you all with all my cravings.
Q: Do you keep a list going with things you need/want? What number one on your list right now?
