Disclosure: With the exception of the Lily Trotters compression socks, I paid for all products myself. As always, all opinions are my own.
This week’s Friday Five theme with the DC Trifecta is “Five Brands to Love.” While there are many brands that I’ve been loyal to for quite awhile now, there are also some that I’ve recently discovered a love for.
A couple of weeks ago, I received a free pair of Lily Trotters compression socks to try out. Aren’t they adorable? Until recently I’d been loyal to a different compression socks brand, but was excited to give these socks a try. They were perfect for my post race recovery after Sunday’s Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. My legs felt as good as new on Monday.
Since being fit for running shoes in September 2013, I’ve only worn Mizuno Wave Inspire shoes. When I was fit, I discovered that my feet need stability shoes, and I have had nothing but love for my Mizunos since I started wearing them.
3. Sparkly Soul
I wear a headband every time I run or workout (I hate flyaways!), and I love how well Sparkly Soul headbands fit my head. I have them in a rainbow of colors!
If you’re like me, then your phone’s battery quickly drains, especially when you’re traveling or running a race. Prior to our trip to Shamrock Half Marathon and our trip to Florida, I researched external phone batteries, and ordered a Lifeguard battery from Amazon. It fit perfectly in my small crossbody purse during our days at Disney World, and is able to completely recharge my iPhone (as long as the charger is fully charged).
I only wear one brand of sports bras, and that’s Champion. As somebody who is larger in the chest and needs a bit of support, I’ve found that Champion sports bras, particularly the underwire ones, provide the support that I need when I’m running.
QOTD: What brands are you currently loving?
