It’s been awhile since I shared my running favorites. I figured this was a good week to do so since I missed this topic last week for TOTR and I don’t have a spring race update to share this week. So it all works out!

I actually haven’t been buying too much running stuff lately. I got a bunch of things for Christmas that I am still using. I’ve been better about recognizing the difference between needing running gear/clothes and wanting them. (Wait, is there really a difference?)
So let’s talk about some of my recent running favorites.
Recent Running Favorites
Believe it or not, this is my first and only item that I’ve owned from Athleta. I also received a tank top for Christmas but it didn’t fit well. I went into the store to exchange it but couldn’t find anything else that I liked. Luckily, the t-shirt is really comfortable and fits great! I like that it’s long so I used it for layering on cold runs this winter.
I like that this headband is a little bit lighter than the others I own. It’s been good for this early-spring days that are still cold. I also think it would be good for wearing under a hat if you need two layers.
These are still my new favorite pair of running shoes. They’re so comfortable, not too heavy, and are perfect for just about any type of run.
This was my first GapFit tank top and I got really lucky that it fit perfectly even though I ordered it online and totally guessed at the size! (I ordered a small.) I think all of my other tank tops are Oiselle so this is a nice change. It’s nice and long so will be good for layering. (Notice how almost all my purchases are based on the ability to layer them?)
I got these tights in blue which was a nice change from all my other black tights. They are comfortable and have pockets which is always a win! I’ve only worn them maybe 3 or 4 times but they have worked out well so far.
This water bottle has been great for running on the treadmill. It keeps my water really cold and is easy to sip out of while I am running. (Well, sort of. I’m not very coordinated while running on the treadmill so I usually slow down a lot to take a drink of water.)
You didn’t think I could get through a whole post about my favorite running stuff without talking about my treadmill did you? Well I have already talked about it enough here, so I’ll leave it at that.

What are some of your recent running favorites?
Do you tend to buy the same brands all the time?
Do you use any of your summer clothes to layer in the winter?
