What I Wear Running (+ a giveaway!)

When I hit the road running, I almost always wear this uniform:

My Running Uniform What I Wear Running (+ a giveaway!)


I mostly use the MotionX GPS app (to keep track of time/speed) and the Charity Miles app (to give to a good cause).

Before heading out the door, I pull my hair back into a ponytail and stretch on a Sparkly Soul headband to keep any flyaways out of my face. The best part about these headbands is that they’re super soft – NO pinching or “headband headaches.” BONUS: they’re pretty.

What do you wear running?


Two Sparkly Soul headbands are up for grabs! One winner will receive a wide headband and a second winner will receive a thin headband.

    Have I worn those running shoes? Hmm. If I did, they were very comfortable. Stretchy black capris or leggings are what I wear and an old t-shirt or tank or sweatshirt (depending on the weather). Looking for new apps all the time so I will have to try the ones you recommend.
