New Running Stuff

10 miles on the exercise bike today for my cross training day.

More exciting news!  I received my $150 Visa Gift card from the Blog prize I won from Amanda at Run to the Finish.  Of course, I already spent it all on running gear and here's what I got:

Brooks Ghost 2 shoes
I've never tried Brooks shoes and have always stuck to Saucony but I thought I would try something new.  I have already done a couple short runs in them and like them so far.

Saucony Ride 2
 These(Saucony) have been a staple for my running shoes.  I have like 7 pairs of these and love them.

The Stick!
 Another rolling device called "The stick".  I like my foam roller but this is nice to reach areas my foam rolller cannot get to.  You can also put more pressure on certain areas as well.

Manzella Gloves/mittens

 A second pair of gloves/mittens for outside runs in the winter.  These take a little time to dry so I figured another pair is nice to have to switch off on days.

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!

  5. Looks like the gift card was well spent. I was a big Saucony believer but discovered through our local running store that feet change and so should running shoes. Hope you enjoy the Brooks.

  6. Although I'm biased, Brooks gets running shoes right. I hope you enjoy them!!

  8. I love the new gear. I really liked my stick but I gave to my brother. He is a new runner and I wanted to share the wealth. I will just stick with my foam roller!

  10. New running stuff...what can be better! I like the stick. Are Brooks shoes more expensive on average there? Here in SA they are quite more expensive than most other brands.

  11. With any luck I'll do 10 miles worth of errands on my bike too. Coincidence? I think not.

  17. Meg - I can't say yet, I have not used it enough yet. Partial to the foam roller at this point.

    Johann - no, they are about the same as other shoes - just depends on model.

    Danny - I'm feeling it today but I think probably because of the run on Sunday.

    Lee - I've only done a 3 and 5 miler in them but so far, so good. Tomorrow I will probably run 3 in them as well.

    Jamoosh - very true

    Jennifer - love it!
