NEW SEASON: GEAR TO CHECK OUT FOR YOURSELF OR OTHERS
Yesterday’s post was about new gear versus experiences, with emphasis on activities to enjoy in the Fall. Today’s post links you to new running gear highlighted in Competitor.com and selected by it’s editors.
I must admit the #1 SKLZ Hydro-Roller water bottle/foam roller is intriguing and the testimonial compelling! The #2 Voormi River Run hoodie is pictured in my favorite color, heather gray, and similar to an amazing light wool over-shirt that’s already in my closet. #3 Headlamps are a good purchase for anyone who doesn’t have this item and runs in darkness. The intense light can be shined in the eyes of someone you think is approaching you in a threatening way, so it’s a bit of security to carry in your hand on runs also. This LED Lenser Neo is said to have a red light visible to those behind the wearer, an improvement on the headlight I own.
I know someone who would love the #4 Chaco Kirkwood flips. Unlike most generic footwear of this type, this brand/style looks like it has some support. Although pricey and a bit too dark-colored for safety in the dim light of rainy days, the claim that #5 North Face HyperAir GTX Jacket is water resistant and breathable is something to check out. The #6 Brooks Greenlight cuff looks amazing. I’m going to find one. Having never used shoe deodorizers before, the #7 Sneaker Balls could be helpful to me and be an inexpensive cheerful gift for others, especially in instances in which “it’s the thought that counts”.
I love this selection of mostly affordable, “convenient, portable, and simple items for fall!!!”
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
