Gear & Clothing

These are gear and accessories that I've tried and like.  I have not received any compensation or free perks for these recommendations...These are simply my personal picks.  If you have a gear, clothing or technology recommendation, I'd love to hear it...
  • Zensah compression wear rocks.  I wear the compression leg sleeves on my runs, compression socks for recovery, and compression arm sleeves:
  • Hilarious and inspirational tech shirts from One More Mile:
  • The Zoot triathlon bag is the best.  Lots of compartments and very sturdy: Zoot tri bag
  • Garmin Forerunner 910XT:  Where would I be without it?  Heart rate monitor, heart rate zones, GPS, and you can even track your swim laps in a pool (although the heart rate monitor doesn't register in the water, but it is water resistant).  
  • Aquajogger Fit Belt by Aquajogger.  When I had to take up aquajogging during an injury, this was the belt I went with for deep water endurance running, and I loved it.  Fits great and they have different models for men and women to adjust for our different shapes.  
  • Sweaty Bands hair bands:  I don't like wearing pony tails (because I look like a dude) or hats (unless it's really hot or sunny), so I love these hair bands for keeping my hair back on a run.  They stay put and have tons of cute designs.
  • Smith Optics Pivlock sunglasses:  I love these for cycling because they have no rim at the top, so they're easier to see out of.  Plus, they come with interchangeable lenses for different weather conditions.    
  • Road ID band:  This isn't really even an option - it's a necessity.  Whether you're a runner, cyclist, swimmer, skier, or skateboarder, emergency medical personnel need to know who to contact in case you're in an accident.  You can also securely register any important medical information that emergency personnel would need to know.
