How to Pick Your (triathlon) Run Gear
There's only one thing you NEED to run. Shoes. Okay, you NEED clothes too. But do ya really!? *wink wink*
Clothes: light, comfortable, weather appropriate, and if it chafes, don't wear it again!!
Put your energy into the right shoes ^^^
I will say avoid cotton. It's hot and heavy and holds in moisture. Ditch the cotton!! You want moisture wicking and breathable.
There's a lot of gear and gadgets out there that make running more comfortable and enhance the overall experience...
Run watch, heart rate monitor, sunglasses, visors vs. hats, handheld water bottles, waste pack water bottles, camelbak water bottles, phone sleeves, belts, headphones and music players, socks ~ so many socks to pick from!!, lights and reflective gear, compression, anti-chafing creams, and recovery tools. This is all personal choice picks. Read reviews, do some research, and consider while you're running, 'what would make this run more delightful'? And then go find it, it exists! And it's mostly affordable.
Running doesn't have to suck, be comfortable!!
