It must have been fate almost five years ago when they were a sponsor of the Disneyland half and gave us each a few pack of shot bloks. I had never heard of fueling before but took the during the race and felt great. I've used them every since in addition to their Clif Shots. My favorite blok favor is Margarita and my favorite shot flavor is mocha!
I was beginning to get blisters while running and tried feetures and not only do they feel great but they also prevent blisters. I love the pull tab on the back of the heel. And I hear they are now making compression socks!
I haven't yet done a full review of them but I won a free pair from a blog and I'm obsessed. I haven't tried running in them yet but I sleep in them and they feel fantastic. I plan on buying at least 2 pairs at the Tinkerbell expo to start wearing them when I run. I also love their leggings and wear them often!
4. Sparkle Skirts/Sparkle Athletic
Same idea but different companies. Sparkle skirts have built in pockets while sparkle athletic is just the fabric. I'm loving collecting skirts as they make me feel girly while I run.
I just realized I never did a full review of my Garmin forerunner 220 I got for my birthday last year-oops! Basically I am in love and it does everything I want it to do (minus do a 1 mile lap when you do intervals). I love that you can set the intervals to distance or time and I love the display screen. I use it for all of my runs and I love that you use Bluetooth to sync it to your iPhone. Also it charges VERY fast. It can do a full charge in less than an hour and a half.
So this weekend I will be utilizing all of these brands when I take on the Sunset Strip half: fueling with Clif, wearing feetures socks, recovering in procompression, wearing a sparkleskirt and tracking my time with my garmin!
How about you? What are you favorite running related brands?
