Friday Fascinations: Five Brands to Love!

Hi everyone!  Today I am linking up with Courtney at Eat Pray Run DCCynthia at You Signed Up for What and Mar at Mar on the Run for their weekly linkup.  Their topic this week is 5 Blogs to Read but instead, I am doing last week's topic - Five Brands to Love!  It is high time I share my favorite brands with you all!
Here we go:
1.  Spandits
Yes, I am an addict.  Yes, I am an Ambassador.  But I can honestly tell you I have never run in anything as comfortable as a Spandits skirt.  No chub rub.  Cool and dry fabric.  Tons of fun colors and patterns.  I can't even pick a favorite but I am loving my newest peacock skirt.  
You can use code SPANDITSLOVE to get 10% off your first order!

I am not an Ambassador.  I do not receive any incentive whatsoever to tell you about them or to use their products.  I just LOVE their hydration systems.  

I am wearing the single barrel Hydra Quiver here but my absolute favorite is the VP2 double bottle carrier.  They are no bounce, super light and no chafing...ever!

I did a boot camp workout on Wednesday without a visor because I forgot and it sucked.  Sweat burning in my eyes.  So more than anything, because I have really painful sweat, I need the Headsweats visor.  It has a terry cloth band on the inside to capture all the sweat during a hard workout!

You can use code SDMOM25 for 25% off your next Headsweats purchase.  (Yes I am an ambassador but I make no commission.  This is just a code for you to use!)

4.  Compression Socks
I know, I am cheating by giving you a generic "Compression Socks."  But I have been known to wear many different brands.  If I had to pick a favorite, I would say Pro Compression. I love all the colors and all the fun prints.  My favorites are probably the January sock of the month - Jail Break!

I have seen a few coupon codes out there for 40% off.  Try SM15.  And again, not an Ambassador just a fan!

This was a tough one.  I wanted to put in all my favorite nutrition in this spot including Vega and Skratch.  But I settled on Honey Stinger because SD Dad and I both use them ALL the time in our sports!  Me for running and him for biking.  Yes I am a part of the HS Hive but I truly love this stuff. The chews are awesome.  They never get stuck in your teeth and they are delicious.  And if you have ever had their waffles, you know!  Delish!

You can get your Stinger chews and waffles at a local running store like Movin Shoes!

So tell me, what are some of your favorite brands?  Favorite apparel?  Favorite nutrition?  I want to hear it all!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. Great list. Tried Honey Stinger finally at the RnRDC expo and loved the waffles. Immediately bought some.

    Looking at investing in Orange Mud for training this summer before it gets too hot for my long runs. Trying to decide between the single or the double barrel.

  2. Yep, can't live without my Headsweats visor. Love ProCompression too! Honey Stingers, also my fuel of choice! Great minds :) My favorite skirts however are the Lululemon Pacesetter and Pace Rivals! Never heard of the hydration pack before, that's a new one for me!

  3. I do love my Gu. And a hat is a must for running in San Diego!

  4. great list! though I can't wear hats/visors I am a huge fan of compression and HONEY STINGERS are the bomb!

  5. i like honey stinger products a lot! and do love headsweats!
