|Smart Wool Running Socks|
The past year I got in the habit of not wearing socks with my Nike Frees so when I do wear socks, I like them thin. Smart Wool running socks are not only thin, but they keep my feet dry and blister free. They are a must have for any runner.

I don't know if I really have a favorite running top at this point. I prefer either long sleeve dri-fit tops or tanks with a built in bra. I am still looking for a good sports bra and go to tank. I have been considering getting the Lululemon Cool Racerback as it has great reviews. Recently, I came across Ellie and Fabletics athletic wear online, and I am interested in some reviews of their running gear before I take the plunge.
|Nike Frees 3.0-5.0|
I have tried various pairs of running shoes over the past few years and have yet to deem one my favorite. When I first started running, I wore the Nike Lunar Eclipse. I then switched to a pair of Asics Kayano. Both proved to work quite well so I purchased another pair of the Nike Lunar Eclipses; however, the upgrade did not work as well, and I ended up searching for a new pair after a few short months. Since that time, I have suffered several injuries, so after a great deal of research, I decided to try a more minimal pair of running shoes. To date, I have thoroughly enjoyed the Nike Frees for short to medium runs. I also like the Brooks Pure Cadence but definitely need to go up a size in those and take some time to transition into them as they force me to run more with a midfoot strike which I was not used to.I transitioned into those at the end of my marathon training and suffered the consequences with some serious shin issues. This past running season I tried the Asics Lite and Mizuno Wave while training for the TC marathon, but both felt too big in the toe box, and I was sidelined once again with a femoral stress fracture. Currently, I am wearing the Saucony Kinvara as I get back into running after my injury.
