Shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus series
Started with #9, now running with #12
I really like my Nike Filament Running Capris.
They not only fit well but they also do NOT ride
up if you know what I mean and they're flattering.
For socks I love my Smartwool running socks.
They are very cushy and very comfortable.
I also really like my Under Armour socks, but
they are pretty thin.
And as far as shorts, I'm a Nike Tempo lover.
They are super comfy, roomy, and long enough
in between the legs, no chafing or discomfort.
T-shirts: I like nike, champion, target...almost anything works here.
Long Sleeve tops: I love 3/4 zip tops almost anytime even when not running, but i love my nike ones especially the ones with thumb holes.
As far as other gear goes:
I also always leave the house with these for short and longer runs:
- inhaler and spacer
- i-phone for pandora listening/headphones
- visor, not a hat, just a visor...I like it better:)
- polar f11 heart rate monitor...I'd love a Garmin 205/305 but it's hard to part with the $$
