Yes, the title is serious. Not really, but lets get right into it! As some of you may or may not know (depending on if you follow my Instagram or read my last blog), I am training for a half-marathon. With that said, as I up my miles, I am finding that I am in need of a few new additions to my gear.
First up – I need some kind of flashlight, head lamp situation. I primarily run at night, because it is when I personally feel the humidity less, but because of that I have definitely had some issues with lighting, and there are never enough street lamps. So if anyone has any tips, or any products that they love, please send them my way! I have run a few times with the flashlight on my iPhone, but it really doesn’t do a great job.
Second – Water bottles! I know many runners don’t take water with them, but I have to. I have always sweat more than the average person, so likewise I drink more water than the average person. I have a bottle that I have been running with but it wasn’t made for running so it can be a bit cumbersome at times. So if any of you have any water bottles that are comfortable to run with, I would love a link.
Third – As I said before, I run mostly at night, so I really need to invest in some reflective visibility gear. I was thinking about just grabbing a vest at Home Depot, but I figured it would really annoy me because of how loose they are. Any running specific reflective gear you use would be greatly appreciated!
Those are all the thing that I needed recommendations for, and thank you in advance for any help you send my way! Believe me, I really appreciate it. It’s always better to get someones actually opinion on a product rather than just buying something blind online.
