running shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 16
I LOVE Mizunos. They are my favorite running shoes. I’ve never had to “break them in” or had any problems with them. The 16s are lighter than the 15s (although I loved the 15s and had two pairs) and the ride is smooth.
training partner: Garmin Forerunner 610
Phil got me this watch for my 29th birthday and I have been attached to it ever since. I had a bit of a problem with the heart rate strap but I emailed them and they immediately sent me a new one. It now works great! The GPS is pretty on point and even works well when I’m traveling abroad – I used it in Costa Rica and Chile with no problems. You can customize the interface and it is also very user-friendly. I sometimes use this watch for speed workouts because you can also set intervals with rest times/distances. I love it so much!
Brooks, Craft, and anything Nike.
Pearl Izumi running tights and Brooks shorts. Although I love Nike tops, I am not a huge fan of their shorts because they are sort of bubbly. I have also recently become a fan of lululemon shorts, primarily the Speed Shorts.
