Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics.This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are some of your favorite running brands? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
I’ve tried a good amount of running products over the years – some great and some not so great. There are a few brands that have consistently impressed me. Here are three of my favorite running brands.
I have fallen in love with their sneakers and clothing, especially their sports bras. After being faithful to Mizuno sneakers for a few years, I had to make a switch after they kept messing around with the Wave Inspire sneakers. After a lot of trial and error, I found the Brooks Adrenaline GTS sneakers – I even ran my last marathon in them! These sneakers offer the right amount of support and keep my feet happy. I really hope that Brooks doesn’t change these up too much in the future.
I also love their clothes, especially their running tanks and sports bras. Around 80% of my sports bras are Moving Comfort Juno. I think Brooks owns this brand since it’s on their website? It’s such a comfortable bra and keeps the girls in place, especially during high impact workouts.
I have a few Buff products, but my favorite is their multifunctional headwear because it can be used as a neck gaiter, headband, hood, beanie, etc. I can really wear it in all types of weather which is perfect for outdoor running. In addition, at the start of the pandemic in March I didn’t have any masks so I relied on doubling up my buff items. I was lucky that I had enough for myself and to give to my parents and sister until our masks got delivered. I’ll never forget how clutch their products were for me during that crazy time!
I have only worn their low socks for all of my workouts for several years. I love the extra support and compression the socks provide, especially around the arch of my foot. I haven’t worn the over the calf socks that much for running this year (since I’m not running long distances), I still wear them around the house to help aid in recovery after really hard bootcamp and OTF workouts. The owners of the company are also so nice and very passionate about giving back to their community. I was an ambassador for the brand for several years and it was an amazing experience!
