My Faves: Running Edition

I always am interested in what kinds of things people use for certain things and which things are peoples favorites, so I am going to tell you about mine. This time will be running related

There are so many options out there when it comes to work out gear and running related items its like getting lost in a jungle sometimes.


My favorite shoes are New Balance, last year when I trained for and ran my first half marathon I was using just a cheapo pair of new balance shoes I wore mainly because I though the colors were cute...not the best way to choose running shoes but none the less they were cute and to be honest I never had any injuries or odd sorenesses that some people have from using poor running shoes. 

Earlier this year a few months before I did my second 1/2 marathon I thought maybe I should invest in some "proper" running shoes, so I went to a fancy running store and they analyzed my stride and I basically have a normal one.  They showed me several different brands of shoes to try on and low and behold I ended up back with new balance, all the other brands were just not right, So I walked out with more New Balance running shoes and now I can say I am a major fan of New Balance, all 5 pairs of sneakers I own are New Balance!

These are my current shoes:
They are New Balance 760 Susan G. Komen edition
(I also have these in orange and white)


I recently discovered my all time favorite running shorts, if they werent so expensive I would buy way more of them but they are a little pricey so I only buy a pair every now and again, I currently have them in black and a pair with light pink and grey, they are sooooo comfortable its almost like running with no pants on, but really they have no seams so you dont have any crazy elastic or ties digging into your sides or whatever and the fabric is so soft, I couldl really wear them on a daily basis!

They are amazing!
these are the black ones

Aside from that I have no other preferences, I dont need any special sports bra so I buy whats cute and thats really all you NEED to run, oh yeah and a good itunes playlist always helps!!

Cute running gear! Makes me wish I actually had the willpower to exercise! :)

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
