Hello! I feel like I haven’t talked to you or updated you on my life in FOREVER! Obviously a huge part of my life right now is training for the NYC marathon with Tag Heuer! Running has literally taken over my life. When people say training for a marathon is like having a full time job, they aren’t kidding! It really is so much work and time. As I have trained the last few months and over the years, I have found the best gear that really has helped me train and make doing the long runs WAY better and more comfortable! I will touch on just a few of these things below!
The first thing on my list is socks. As you all know I was having major issues with my feet. I couldn’t stop getting blood blisters and my toe nails were constantly falling off. I was originally using the Lululemon socks but they were not working. I finally found the best socks EVER. My favorite is the Features running socks. Since I started using them I haven’t had one blister or issue with my toe nails. I HIGHLY recommend them!
Second, is this hand held water bottle. I used to either not carry a water bottle at all or I would carry a huge camelback water bottle and it was so awkward to run with. I found the Amphipod hand held water bottle on Amazon and it has made all the difference in the world! It’s SO easy to run with and carries plenty of water. If you are a runner you NEED this bottle!
Third, Saucony Kinvara 7 running shoes. I have tried all different running shoes and these are my very favorite. I even splurged and bought the Adidas running shoes that had such great reviews and they just didn’t cut it! Trust me on this, get the Kinvaras!
Overall, my training is going really well! Running with my Dad makes it fun and it makes the long runs not so bad! I actually look forward to my early morning runs! Today I am running nine miles and then on Saturday we are running 20… wish us LUCK! We will need it. When we did 18 last Saturday I literally cried the last mile. It was so hard. We did tons of hills so my legs were shot! If you have any specific questions that you want me to talk about on here, please write them in the comment section and I will try to cover them! My dad and I have talked about doing an e-book together on our training schedule and tips. Please let me know if that is something you would be interested in!! I will leave you with this video I did for TAG Heuer. Have a great day!
