Friday Favorites + An Offer From PRO Compression!

In honor of a Favorite Things party I'm hosting tomorrow evening (recap next week!), I thought I'd do a little round-up that includes some of my current running favorites! Here's what makes today's list:

Saucony Kinvaras - I've worn them on a few runs now and I love the way they feel on my feet -  lighter than my usual trainers but more substantial than my racing flats. The perfect shoe for my upcoming half marathons!

Oiselle Stellar Stripe Tank - Light as air and super stylish. I highly recommend getting this tank! I have the light blue version and it looks really cute paired with my orange Oiselle Lori Shorts. Sadly these shorts are no longer available, but you'll find a similar fit with the Distance Shorts

Grape Nuun - This just might be my new favorite flavor of Nuun. It reminds me of grape bubblegum, which I loved as a kid. I've even started bringing my handheld on runs again just so I can sip Nuun during the miles ;)

Eat & Run by Scott Jurek- Although I don't see myself ever running an ultra or going vegan, I can't put this book down. I'm in awe of the type of endurance it takes to race distances like 100 miles and find it fascinating the types of changes Jurek sees in his running as he cleans up his diet. A good read for any runner!

PRO Compression Marathon Retro Sock - I saw these socks in an email earlier this week and it was immediate love. I think the blue, yellow and red stripes are just the cutest and add that extra bit of flair to make a running outfit stand out, which is a must on race day!

  1. I just discovered Nuun. I didnt think I'd like it at all, but I love it...thanks for the rec on the tank. I'm always looking for more with our weather being so hot right now.

    1. I agree - can't get enough lightweight running clothes in this type of weather!

  2. Love grape flavored anything, so I have to check that out!
