Disclaimer: With the exception of the Mizuno running shoes, which I received as part of a FitFluential campaign, I paid for all products myself. As always, all opinions are my own.
Its been awhile since I shared some of my favorite running gear, and since my body has gone through some changes recently (ahem, pregnancy and the birth of a child), which has led to me trying out some new fitness attire, I thought I’d share some of my current favorites with all of you.
Prior to pregnancy, and throughout my pregnancy, I was loyal to a different brand of sports bras. However, once little man arrived and I started breastfeeding, my once well endowed chest became even more endowed. A couple of days before I was cleared to resume running, I went to our local running store in search of new sports bras, and quickly fell in love with Moving Comfort. I’m currently wearing bras from two of their lines (Maia and Juno), and am finding that both lines are providing the support that I need. One of the things that attracted me to Moving Comfort is that their bras are available in actual bra sizes, not just small, medium, large, and I’m able to wear bras that are true to the size that I actually am now.
2. Road Runner Sports tanks
While I was at Road Runner in search of new sports bras, which also happened to be on a day when the entire store was 25 percent off for VIP members, a running tank attracted my attention. While I own and have worn several of the Road Runner brand shorts and capris, I had yet to give their tops a try. That day I walked out of the store with one of their tanks, and the fit and feel has been incredible. The tank fits well on the top, but isn’t super tight around my midsection. Since I’m still trying to tighten up my core since giving birth, I’m greatly appreciative of having a well fitting running tank that doesn’t hug my stomach.
3. Mizuno running shoes
Its no secret that ever since I was first fit for running shoes that I’ve been a loyal Mizuno wearer. I’m loving my current pair of running shoes, the Wave Inspire 12s, which I received last fall through my affiliation with FitFluential. Even if I hadn’t received this pair of shoes to review when the Wave Inspire 12s were first released, I would have still bought them. They fit my feet well and provide the support that I need while running.
4. Sparkly Soul
I continue to love Sparkly Soul headbands. I absolutely hate flyaways, and not only do these headbands keep the flyaways down but they stay in place on my head. Plus, they are available in a rainbow of colors so I can always find a headband that will compliment my running outfit.
Since I started running I’ve been wearing Experia socks by Thorlos. Not once have I gotten a blister (knock on wood!), and I’ve gotten very few hot spots. I like that they are thicker socks and do well in absorbing the sweat from my feet while running while also keeping my feet try enough to prevent them from blistering.
