A few of my favorite things

Note: None of these items were given to me to review. I bought all of them (or my husband bought them for me!) But, I'd love to be an ambassador for any of them!

Shoes: Brooks.  When I first started running, I visited Fleet Feet in Albuquerque. They watched me run, and recommended Brooks.  These are my 4th pair.  My 5th pair is in a box. My husband bought me 2 pairs so I would never run out. (My 2nd pair I won in a contest, and my 3rd pair was sent because the 2nd pair had issues with the sole coming loose. Even though Brooks customer service explained that Brooks were for running and hiking--not Zumba--they sent me a replacement pair!)
 
Insoles: SuperFeet: Green.  When I bought my first pair of Brooks, these were recommended for my plantar fascitis.  I wear these every day--whether I'm walking, running, or just living life.

Laces: Hickies.  I was skeptical when I first tried these, but I hate stopping to tie my shoes. And I really like slip on shoes.  Hickies are elastic bands that replace your shoe laces. They come in a variety of colors. You can lace them in a different ways depending on how tight you want them. I have never had to stop and "button" them while running.  They even worked for my 76 year old Mama! (No, Mama was not running!).  Customer service is great. One of my laces broke and when contacted, they quickly sent me a pack of my choice.
Sports Bra: Enell. I finally (after about 5 or 6 years?!?!) got my second Enell sports bra.  They are expensive, but well worth it.  It fits like a straight jacket, but it does the job.  Thanks for you the support!
Inspirational Running shirts: Active Faith  I found these shirts and just love them! I ordered two: Pink "I am fearfully and wonderfully made" and gray Isaiah 40:31 including "They will RUN and not be weary".  They have a new one "Thanks be to God who gives us the VICTORY through our Lord Jesus Christ". 

Their motto is:

"Whatsoever you do in word or deed, do in the name of the Lord"

~Colossians 3:17

I wasn't thrilled with the picture in the pink shirt until I compared it to my before picture.
 

Headbands: Hippie  Runner.  This is my latest acquisitio--they arrived yesterday!  This one says, "And she ran happily ever after". I got a few, including an Autism awareness one. They are cute and comfortable. I did have a little trouble with it sliding off the back, but I eventually got it settled in the right place.  It stayed on well during my run.  



What are your favorite running or workout items? Any brands or products I should try?
