So I am going to be sharing some fun year in review posts between now and the end of the year. I have learned so much in the short time that I have been running this year and am excited to look back at it!
So to start out with, my first #flatrunner . This is a common practice in the running community, each person has their own flair but we all love to share our favorite outfits and gear for our races. Mine started with my first ever virtual run with Fit Fam.
I've got my #flatrunner all ready for my puppy run tonight for @fitfamhq ! Should be a good 5k, plus fits perfectly into W2D3 of training. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Don't forget to check out my #giveaway a few posts back to win 2 pair of @newzillusa #compressionsocks and use code popupomaha30 for 30% off your @healthwarrior order!!
This was my first opportunity to try Nuun Hydration and was hooked from the get go. I also used my SPI belt, which you will see pop up in most of my flat runners, as it is one of my favorite pieces of gear. For this race, I tried out compression socks. This is when I learned that I prefer them for recovery but do occasionally use them for runs.
Next up was the American Lung Association- Fight for Air Corporate Cup. This was a super fun run, and came right after I found out that I was a new Skirt Sports ambassador. You will see their capris ALOT in my IG feed. I love them, this is a pair of pocketopias. You also see Health Warrior in all of my flat runners, because they are my favorite post run snack. I also always have my Wearsafe Tag on, even for races.
I'm so excited to be doing the @lung_nebraska #corporatecup2017 with @thalverson23 tomorrow ! This is my first official race, and it's so close to my heart. So I will share more on that tomorrow, today I have my #flatrunner and my announcement that I've been chosen as an ambassador for another amazing company. @skirtsports makes athletic clothes for every woman and that is amazing!!! #healthwarrioramb
Next up for the year was my first ever trail run. I had so much fun with this, but quickly learned that my Nike Free RNs are great for the street, but terrible in a trail setting. I also got my first pair of xx2i sunnies and was instantly in love! I was so honored to be added to their ambassador program for 2018.
So as the year goes on, I started learning what I loved and what I still wanted to try. I had my first solo race, up until this point in the year, I had always had someone to run with. This race is where I tried my Balega socks for the first time and boy did I love them. I also was addicted to Momentum Jewelry, and wear a wrap just about every day.
Wrapping up my racing for the year was the big show. My first Half Marathon! Well by this point, I had a plan and knew what worked for me. With the help of some awesome great, hard training and a great cheerleader with me, I made it! I can’t wait to see what my flat runners look like next year!
What is your favorite piece of gear for race day?
