New Runner Stuff



I previously shared with you that I received a variety box of Clif bars over the holidays.  I thought I would share a few more runner gifts that I received (but haven't yet had an opportunity to use).



I love my Flip Belt, so I was so excited when I received these Flip Belt Capris from my sister. They are basically a pair of running capris with a Flip belt attached to the waist band.


My lovely friend gifted me with this awesome light weight running hat.  I have a Nike cap I use to borrow from Scott and I liked it because it was good to wear in the rain. This one is made out of the same material!

My mom gifted me with a pair of PR soles (and a matching headband). I haven't used them for recovery yet, but I have been wearing them around the house when my feet feel tired from being on them all day and they feel great!

I also got this therma fleece lined Reebok half zip with the thumb holes.  I got a therma fit shirt from RBX last year and absolutely loved it! I looked all year long for another one and could not find one. The one I got last year kept me warm in temps less than 32 degrees and that was the only layer I had on. I haven't gone on a cold run yet this year but I bet this one would keep me toasty too since it is made the same way.

These next products were not a gift, I bought them for myself. I was in need of some new non slip headbands for running ( a lot of mine had stretched out over the years) so I searched on Etsy.


Not only did I buy 5 new headbands, but also got this shirt. I got such a good deal on it, I couldn't pass it up.  You know how I love running Disney races!

I got the sparkly headband to match this shirt but I also got a few holiday themed ones that I can't wait to wear (Valentine's day, St Patty's day, Easter, etc)

What new running things have you got lately? -M

  1. Everything is so stylish! My newest running item is a headband/ear warmer type thing. It is fleece and bright orange and says EP on it (for my school, East Pennsboro). Guess where I got it? For free in the teacher's lounge! A retired teacher brought in all her EP garb she didn't want and it was free. Hahaha! The orange will be good for trail runs. The last thing I spent money on was a new bladder for my hydration pack. I love it.

  2. These are all great! I love the idea of having a flip belt built into a pair of running tights. And those sandals sound so comfortable!

  3. Oh I love all of these, especially those flip belt leggings, so practical for runners!

  5. You need to get out there and try that awesome gear! I was supposed to test the Flip Belt crops but they never sent them - womp womp! You'll have to let us know how you like them!

  6. Oh, I love that half-zip! Great pattern. I love my Oofos for recovery - you should try out your shoes soon!

    1. I think the color of the half zip will be perfect for spring but warm enough if the weather does not feel "spring like".

  7. It is a gift. It's just a gift from yourself to yourself. :)

    Those flipbelt capris -- I hadn't heard of it but what an interesting idea. Although I've come to learn I don't like stuff around my stomach.

    I've gotten (almost) all the wonder wool from Skirtsports. Seriously, I love that stuff -- not at all itchy (because the wool content is low) but still wicks like nobody's business.

    Other than that, not much new running stuff lately. Probably cause I'm not running a whole lot right now!

  8. I like the idea of the capri's...I have a similar belt (Hip'Sister?), but it never stays in place (just like every other belt in my rotation LOL). It would be nice to have a waistband to stash stuff that would stay in place.

    1. I was debating between the two sizes when I ordered the flip belt years ago. I went with the smaller size and although it is a bit snug, I know it stays in place! I'm anxious to see how I like the capris!

  9. You just reminded me that I was supposed to have received a pair of the Flipbelt capri to test out but never did! Oh well.Curious to hear how you like them! Love the Cinderella tank.

  10. That tank is great for any Disney or Princess themed races - cute!

  11. I love that Run Like Its Midnight shirt, so cute! I keep seeing ads for the flipbelt capris and was wondering about how comfortable they would be. That's good to hear you like them.

    I'd want to wear those flip belt capris every day of my life - even under pants :) haha probably just easier to wear my flip belt ;) haha

    1. The flip flops have bumps on the soles that massage the bottom of your feet! Very comfy!

  14. I just bought myself a flip belt! My other running belt broke, and I have wanted to try flip belt for a long time.

    I love the color of that tank top, I know it's going to look great on you!

    1. Thanks Ana! I hope you like the flip belt. I love that you can get water bottles that will slide into it.

  15. Oh, such fun things you have! I absolutely love that shirt!

  16. New gear is so much fun. Even new socks can be great. I bought a couple more pairs after New Year's since some of my current socks are getting worn down.

    1. The new year is the great time to replace running gear.

  17. I love my flipbelt! I've seen those capris but haven't nabbed a pair yet. And I love headbands! The sparklier the better! I'm thinking about growing my hair out so those will definitely come in handy in keeping my mop off my face. haha

    1. I get the non slip headbands. Those are the best!

  18. Great stuff! I have three lined - not fleece, but heavier than a regular shirt - long-sleeved shirts and wish I had a couple more for cold-weather running. I'll have to check out the one you got. As for new gear, I haven't gotten anything lately except for shoes. I was at the Sweaty Band booth at the Houston expo, but didn't end up getting any, which I'm regretting...new headbands are so fun! Can't wait to see you model all of yours. :)

    1. Actually, I use to only buy "SweatyBand" headbands before I discovered people sell other fun patterns on Etsy. Turns out, it's my "Sweatyband" ones that are the ones that are all stretched out. Seems like the home made ones from Etsy are better quality.

  19. I love your cute headbands! I'd like to get some but I always wear a hat when I run outside. Maybe I just need a new fun hat.
    The flip belt leggings - What a great idea!

    1. I love my headbands but hats are great for when I think it might rain!

  20. I always love sparkly stuff! The tank and headband will be really cute :)
    I just ordered a new Skirt Sports capri and tank - I hope it fits when it arrives.

  21. I have a couple fleece-lined running shirts from Target! It's been a couple years, but I bet they still carry something similar. And my most recent running purchase was thermal tights.

    1. I had no idea they sold those at Target. I feel like I looked every where. I must have missed them. Seeing that Target now has swimsuits out, I doubt they still have those fleece lined running shirts, haha

  23. I'm intrigued by the Flipbelt capris. I love my Flipbelt! But not 100% convinced I'd like it attached to the capris. Would love to hear how you like them after you've tried them on a few runs.

    I've long wanted recovery flip flops. I need to look more into them.

  24. I had no idea flip belt made pants/ capris.. that is so cool. Flip belt has definitely been one of my game changing running accessories !
