Runner Odds & Ends

Below are some items from our Amazon Associates offering that aren't the typical Running Store things; except for socks, but these are my personal favorite and may or may not be available locally.  You'll likely get your shoes, fueling, etc. from your favorite shop or site, but here's an option for the Odds & Ends at no extra cost to you.

CamelBak Eddy+

Balega V-Tech Quarter

Balega V-Tech Quarter

hydration

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.

Balega running socks

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.

Olight Mini Light

Balega V-Tech Quarter

"Adv. Marathoning"

Olight flashlight

This is a small keychain flashlight that everyone needs no matter who you are.  Possibly the most handy item on earth.  Takes a single AAA battery

"Adv. Marathoning"

"Adv. Marathoning"

marathon

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.

The Zipster Belt

"Adv. Marathoning"

The Zipster Belt

running belt

I use this during a marathon.  Nicely fits the essentials; including a 150ml softflask (for fuel).  Pay attention to the sizing chart and color choices.

150ml SoftFlask

"Adv. Marathoning"

The Zipster Belt

softflask

A very good call for your Race Day marathon fuel.  Fits well in a Zipster.  I use this plus a 250ml one on Race Day in an Amphipod Belt.  Check out my Blog Post.

Rain Poncho

250ml SoftFlask

Amphipod Belt

rain poncho

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.

250ml SoftFlask

Amphipod Belt

Amphipod race belt

I generally only use this on Race Day and usually just for a marathon.  It's specifically for my 250ml softflask and wears comfortably over the Zipster.

250ml softflask

I use this only for marathons because one of my fuels is 6 scoops of Tailwind; which is too much for the 150ml version.  Explained in my Blog Post.

Hand Warmers

Bug Repellent Bracelet

250ml SoftFlask

hand warmers

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.

Pepper Spray

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.
