    Omg I LOVE that flamingo headband! I need to check them out! You are ready for your race..it’s so easy to get in your head, but you’ve got this!!

    • It’s so cute, isn’t it?! I bought it last summer and it’s one of my favorite prints! You should definitely check them out. They just released a bunch of spring and floral prints that you’ll LOVE.
      And thanks Jackie! Our race is a little over a week away and I’m nervous, but ready!

  2. I love this post so much! I need to write a similar one! I def have less gear than you LOL. I do need to get a hydration belt. Dont run in the dark and Ive been lucky to not need body glide. Ive been to Orlando twice this winter and went BSC at the Lululemon store so I cant even look at fabletics right now! tweeted and pinned!

    I definitely swear by proper shoes! My shoe of choice are the Mizuno Wave Inspires. I love them so much! I’m also a big fan of compression sleeves or sock, though I use them post-run, while I know some runners like to run with them on.

    • I considered the Mizuno shoes when looking for a new pair, but settled with my Brooks. And I switch back and forth on how I use the compression sleeve. On long runs I wear it during the run, but it’s also SO nice to wear afterwards to aid in recovery!

  4. OMG I love that you included the “chub rub” (as I like to call it ;)) stuff! You totally need this when you run! And that headband is adorable! Thanks for the tips!

    This is such good information. I have been wanting to start running.

    This is incredible! I didn’t know you were training for ANOTHER marathon (go you guys, three under your belt = very impressive!) but what’s best about this post is that you’re doing it together <3 LOVE that. Best of luck and thanks for sharing this! Love the running leash. Unfortunately our pup is a senior and the only running he'll do is for snacks so I'm not sure he'd be up for that :)

  7. Thank you for such a great post. I started wearing Brooks Ghost over the past year and LOVE them. I’ve never tried a belt but need to consider it. Passing this along.

    • That’s awesome! Finding a good pair of shoes is SO critical. And you should definitely try out a belt. Isaac and I keep asking ourselves why it took us this long to purchase a hydration belt. It’s definitely been worth every penny to have water on hand whenever we want! And I LOVE my SPIbelt because I can carry so much with me without worrying about it falling out.

    I’m so impressed with you!! I haven’t done any running in a few years. And is it wrong that my favorite part is that the watch and tennis shoes match? ????????

    • Hahaha girl it’s not just my watch and tennis shoes that match. If you looked closely, my socks match as well, and most of my running clothes have that same color in them too. Isaac thinks I have a problem! I just like to call it stylish running, and the fact that mint is my favorite color!

  9. Jessica Bradshaw says:

    So many great products!! I have to get that handsfree leash for Lucy. That girl could run me for hundreds of miles and never wear out. She’s a hot mess!

    • Yes! I promise you’ll LOVE that leash for her, especially since she’s so big. It’s also great for walks, because you can carry things in your hands without having to worry about holding a leash. Definitely worth getting!

  10. There is nothing quite like a good soak with epsom salts after a hard workout, its definitely a must have!

  11. epsom salt is my fav too after a long race. i have ran couple of races but it was not as planned as yours. you guys will do amazing!

    This is so useful! I’m new to the running scene and had no idea about half of the products on this list!

    Thanks for sharing your running essentials. Id like to invest on a fitness tracker and running shoes that I can bring to my first marathon, I think those 2 are great investments too.
