Simply the best bag glove. Unmatched for quality, design and value. If in doubt go with Large. A good bag glove is a must for hitting the heavy bag.
An ex exceptional warm-up and for overall fitness. Smooth and fast ball bearings with memory foam handles and coated steel wire cable. Adjustable as well.
Love this for the home. Fast-action spring for a realistic low-impact workout. Fill with 140 lbs. of water or sand. Great for cardio and to develop speed.
A nice choice for a home free-standing heavy bag. 28 lbs. and 130 lbs. filled with water. The large spring at the bottom keeps the base from shifting.
The ultimate for the home. 17"x62" of striking surface. Fill with 140 to 270 lbs. of water. Super durable with exceptional shock-absorbing foam padding.
A great do-it-all hydration belt for running. No-bounce silicone grip that contours to the body. Comes with two 8 oz. bottles. Wear low on the hips.
Very light and ergonomic for a relaxed, no-slip natural grip. Expandable zippered pocket on strap for small items/phone. Holds 20 oz. of water.
I use this pretty much whenever not running. Sits in the car, on the night table, desk, etc. They say that we're made up mostly of water; and I think they're right.
I'm not going to say that you need to get these. Regular cotton socks aren't ba, but not a terrible idea for "marathon" Race Day and a few training runs.
This may be the best book on preparing for a marathon. The programs go from somewhat to very aggressive. I'm doing the "easiest" one for my next race.
This is very helpful when raining before the Start. Comes in quantity 5 and is disposable yet reusable. A great choice, too, for travel and just to have on hand.
These are the ones for those cold days and/or on the way to the Starting Line (on those cold days). With or without gloves. You might wish you had these.
These actually work. Will be using them more myself; in light of just pulling a tick out of my head. Maybe essential for trail running and definitely for travel.
Consider Fox Labs Pepper Spray when looking for a personal defense item. This is extremely harsh so don't test on yourself and don't ask how I know.
