I haven't bought a lot of running stuff lately because I haven't gone to any race expos. Well, that finally changed at the Rock n Roll Virginia Beach expo. I decided that there were a few things that I just ad to have. I always spend way too much at expos but how can you not when there are so many great running related items? Usually at expos, vendors offer a discounted rate than you would find at a running store or even online, and plus no shipping. So at the expo I purchased a few items. Which brings me to what I am loving…….
- Garmin Forerunner 235- I have been looking at this watch since it first came out. It is a nice upgrade from my Garmin 10. There are a lot of bells and whistles opposed to my other one. Some that I am still trying to figure out. Some nice additions this watch has are smart notifications such as email, texts, and social media alerts. There are even training plans you can download in Garmin connect or customize your own work out and have it synced to your watch.
- Sparkly Soul- I have seen these at many expos but have never bought one. But lately I have wanted a headband to wear to work that didn’t look like a workout headband. I have a few that never stay put in place or some other ones that have gotten stretched out through the years after washing it. So I was due for some new one. Of course if you purchased two you got a slight discount, so why not? These are great. They stay in place and are very fashionable.
3.Click it hot- It is an ice pack/heating pad- The other week when I fell paddle boarding I got a huge bruise on my leg and wanted to ice it. I was able to put this directly on my skin without it feeling like it was going to give me freezer burn. To start the heating process, there is a coin in the pack when you click it and it heats up. It is very soothing on tired muscles.
4. A Head Sweat Visor- Mys sister and I are both big fans of Head Sweat Visors! They really are the best. It's like having a built in sweat absorbing headband. I am loving this particular one because it's black and matches a lot of things. Also, a lot of people in my area wear things that support the local race series ( J &A), so now I feel like I fit in when I'm running!
5. Nathan Fire Catcher Vest- I did not buy this at the expo but I have certainly been loving it lately on those hot long runs! It comes with two 10 oz water bottles. There is a small pocket in the front to keep your key and another pocket that my ipod fits in just perfectly. It's super light weight and very comfortable.
Do you share my love for any of these items? L
