On your marks, get set…go! Spring is here. So if you have been waiting for the sun in order to run, then now is your time. Whether you are lacing up a pair of running shoes for the first time or have been pounding the pavement for awhile now, I have this season’s best gear for both your running level and your budget. So what are you waiting for? Bring on the mileage!
Run Thrifty (Under $50)
If the quality of your music effects the quality of your workouts, then you absolutely must check out SnuggBuds headsets. I was blown away by how crisp and full of bass the sound was in these earbuds. However the part that blew my mind completely was the company’s confidence and impressive guarantee.
For as low as $29.95, you not only get a rockstar set of earbuds but also faith in knowing that all SnuggBuds headsets come with a six month replacement warranty as well as a 18-month wear and tear policy. So what are you waiting for? Rock out while you run out.
And while you are at it you might as well bump and grind your way over to JCPenney’s. I recently had the chance to check out their new and improved fitness line and was beyond impressed, by both the price and the quality. The Xersion™ Pleated Half-Zip Jacket is the perfect layering piece and the Xersion™ Ankle Leggings have all the bells and whistles needed for a great run–a zipper back pocket for your keys and phone as well as ankle zippers for extra air flow. Both retail at $48.00 and are perfect for running or even running errands.
The Dub Running Club ($100 Or Less)
Running shoes can cost you a pretty penny, however I have found the perfect pair that is not only $100 flat, but is worth every dime. Introducing, the Brooks Launch–this neutral award winning pair is an excellent choice if you are looking for a semi light weight that is also cushioned and supportive. Your toes are going to love the extra room since the toe box is wide and as you work towards perfecting your running form you will also appreciate the flexibility this shoe provides. Totally worth the price. Trust me – you wont find anything like the Launch and once you hit the pavement in them you will never look at other running shoes the same.
