This is a fun topics to write about!  Sometimes I like to try new brands but for the most part am very loyal and stick to the brands I like and trust.  Here is a list of my favorite running brands.

🟣 BrooksBy now you all know my love for my Brooks shoes.  Yep, that is all I wear for running.  Currently I am running in the Ghost 12 and have a few new pairs in boxes along with the Launch.  Based on the boxes I have I am estimating that I have enough pairs to wear in 2021.  

🟣 Oiselle – All of my running clothes except my sports bra and socks are from Oiselle.  I will admit they’re not cheap but there have been some sales take place where I take advantage and buy what I want or want.  :-). I am a huge fan of the long roga shorts and the lightening layer.

🟣 Smartwool, Balega, and Lily Trotters – These are the socks I wear for running and even during the day.  I also like to wear Lily Trotters with shorts.  

🟣 Koala Clip – I’ve been using this for over a year on every single run to carry my phone.  Sometimes I add my keys in there when there are no pockets in the tights I am wearing.  Check out Kim’s post for a review.  

🟣 Garmin – I have the 225 and get data such as heart rate, average pace, distance, pace, and time.  That is all I need.  Lately I feel like it isn’t correctly properly anymore and yesterday I ordered the 235.  It should arrive on Wednesday and I am excited about it.  The photo below is from 2015.  Check out that pace!

 I also had the 305.  Ha!  I think I still have it somewhere.

🟣 Headsweats – I first heard about them from Marcia.  Thanks, friend!  I wear these hats a lot during the Summer.  They keep the sun and sweat out of my eyes and I love the fun and variety designs.

25 Comments on Tuesday Topics: My favorite running brands and a birthday giveaway!

  1. I just saw on Insta that you’re a Koala Clip ambassador! Congrats 😉 (And thanks for the shout-out for my review). You probably know I’m also a Brooks gal, too. I think I should get fitted since my stress fracture…my right foot feels like it’s bending weird (probably will eventually self-correct), but I’m concerned about running with it that way for the time being.

  2. I am sure you will like the Garmin 235. I had mine for quite a while until it somehow got water inside it. Now I have the 245 and I’m dazzled with all the stats that it delivers.

    Love that you’re doing a give-away for your special day!

  3. Obviously Skirtsports for most everything except socks – Balega or smart wool and for compression sleeves Zensah or Legend.

    Shoes change with the injury lol

    I do like Brooks meanies and caps.

    I love my 205.

  4. Brooks and Oiselle for me too 🙂 Agree that Oiselle can be pricey but I have been able to take advantage of the sales and I love everything I have, and wear the loungewear all the time! Thanks for hosting the link-up!

  5. I hope to see my family, my parents, my sister and her children, and my MIL. I have not ever tried Brooks for sneakers. I have been loyal to Adidas for many years but had to switch it up to years ago because I needed new sneakers for a 50k and non one had my Adidas in stock locally so I went with some Saucony that I had used before, just the newer model!

Thank you for your comment!
