Friday Fascinations - Happy Birthday to Me edition!

Hi!  Today I am 37 years old and I couldn't be happier about my life, my body and how far I have come. So today, I want to share the 6 (7!) most important things in my running arsenal. The things on my must have list - PERMANENTLY!

1.  My Shoes!  Yes. Hokas look weird. They look like moon shoes. They may even look like orthotics but to the initiated, these are a God send. You can run miles in them without feeling any foot pain. They aren't heavy. They are just heaven.

2.  My Bra!  Weird that I am sharing a picture of my sports bra but hey, what would a best of post be without my Moving comfort Juno?  I have breasts on the bigger side and this bra holds me in without making it look like I have uni-boob!

3.  My Visor!  Headsweats. Only Headweats. I have used some of the other brands out there and only Headsweats keep the sweat out of my eyes. And look at all the fun colors!  I also have a yellow one and a red one, in the wash!  Easy to clean too!


4.  My Socks!  I love compression socks! You already know that. I like wearing them the day before, during and after a race and my absolute hands down favorite brand is Crazy Compression. How can you not LOVE a brand that let's you design your own socks?!


5.  My pre and during race Nutrition!  I must have Vega Pre Workout Energizer 20-30 mins before a run and Nuun during my run. MUST!  I'm not sure what I would do without these.  I am so programmed to need these things!  And I truly feel better while running when I have these things!


6.  My Pants!  My Running Friends!  I had to cheat and make them both my #6.  Because they are pictured together.  I LOVE these pants.  They are so soft and dry and I could say this even after 8 miles!  And the colors are so much fun.  Check them out.  They have a gazillion fun prints!  And I LOVE these and all my friends from MRTT who have made running a BLAST!


Thank you for indulging me on my birthday by reading about my favorites!

So what are your must haves for running?  When is your birthday?  I would love a Happy Birthday comment below!

As always, I wish you Happy feet,
SD Mom

  9. Happy happy birthday! Hope you're enjoying your day! I love Nunn too, and I just heard of Crazy Compression, I'll have to check them out. They seem more economical as far as compression socks go.

  11. Happy happy birthday Smitha! I LOVED your pants that you wore for your bday miles (seen on IG today)—those should be faves as well ;) but I think a good bra is a great sub. Have a fantastic weekend!
