Happy National Running Day! My favorite way to start the day is by hitting the Monon Trail for a nice morning run. There are few things better than getting a good sweat in, hearing the birds chirp, watching the sun come up, and clearing my brain before taking on the day. Today I am sharing a few of my running essentials!
Whether your someone who loves to run or someone who can’t stand the thought, I hope you are able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful day! Happy Running! 🙂
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus
Shoes are so important for runners. Finding a pair that fits your form and style of running is crucial to prevent injury. I had to do some searching to find the perfect shoe but finally landed on the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus. I switched to these shoes about four years ago and have never gone back!
I put quite a few miles on these shoes and try to replace them about every 500 miles, which is usually about every three months for me.
They provide a soft and springy feel and are very responsive. The soles also have a waffle texture which helps absorb the impact. If you are looking for a well constructed, lightweight, breathable, and comfortable shoe this shoe is for you! Plus, they are super cute 🙂
My favorite place to buy new running shoes is Road Runner Sports. They have always provided exceptional customer service and often have great promotions and sales. Today this shoe is on sale for $69.00 which is an amazing price (full price is $110). The best part of Road Runner is that as a member of their VIP program they let you try out and return any shoe that you did not like. And they have great fit experts that will help ensure you are in the right shoe. Take this quiz hear to see what shoe they would recommend for you.
Run Times Short
- My favorite pair of shorts is the Lulu Lemon Run Times Short. They are the only pair of shorts I run in! While they are a touch on the expensive side, they are so worth the extra money. I’ve had a handful of pairs for over five years and they are still in great condition. These shorts are super lightweight and breathable and perfect for running in the summer heat.
