My favorite part of this fitness series has been the daily run/walks, and I’ve discovered some great must-have gear that I never leave home without anymore!

features and armpocket fitness related gadgets

  • Comfortable running shoes are my #1 must have, and I keep mine in the car so that I can squeeze in a quick run/walk while I’m out and about (especially while I’m waiting for baseball practice to end!).
  • Running socks – yes, socks actually DO make a huge difference in your running comfort and performance! I’ve fallen head over heels (pun intended!) for Feetures Running Socks, and I never have to worry about blisters or chafing from a wonky seam or an errant fuzzball inside of my socks again!
  • My Armpocket Mega i-40 armband goes everywhere with me, too! I love that it holds my iPhone 6+ snugly, but I don’t even have to remove it from the case. There’s also room inside of the Armpocket for my ID, credit cards and cash (for those times that my runs end at Target!).
  • Panasonic in-ear headphones are the ear buds of choice for myself and my kids because of their comfortable and snug fit.
  • A good running playlist is a MUST, and Play. Party. Pin. has some great ones for you! Check out her Running Playlist that Will Make You Want to Run and The Best Workout Playlist for some motivating running tunes.

feetures socks being worn I honestly never realized how much of a difference wearing special running socks makes until I started wearing Feetures running socks. It is like night and day from the old socks I was previously wearing (seriously, if you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out!)! My favorite are these Feetures Elite anatomical fit running socks with light cushion, but I think all of the different styles of Feetures socks are ultra comfortable.
