If you ask a runner about their favorite running products, you will get a multitude of different answers. The reality is there are so many different products, and different things work for different people. It’s hard to term any product as best or worst, just because so many people have particular tastes and needs. With that in mind, here are my five favorites!
Brooks Adrenaline GTS
Obviously, we are going to start with shoes. While I started in Mizunos, I am now a dedicated Brooks user, and the Adrenalines are my go-to shoe. I like the fit, and the feel. They are considered a stability shoe, but they aren’t particularly heavy or clunky. I also appreciate the fun colors and patterns. Nine times out of ten, these are the shoes I choose.
As a Florida runner (and resident), I don’t go ANYWHERE without sunglasses. It’s just too bright and damaging to do otherwise. Goodr’s OG shades are my absolute favorite. They are comfortable and lightweight. They don’t slide off or bounce. Do they fog a little? Yes, but it’s so steamy and humid here that I don’t know how they couldn’t. It’s me, not them. They come in amazing colors and patterns, with just a hint of irreverence. And they are super inexpensive, with pairs starting at $25.
Safety first! Road ID is an easy way to keep your ID, contact and medical information on your person while you are out and about. These stainless ID tags slide on to wristband, apple watch bands, or even shoelaces. There are great colors and you can even get IDs and collars for your favorite four legged friends!

Brooks Distance Tank 2.0
Not going to lie, I’m making it my mission to get every single Brooks Distance tank. I love the colors, the graphics and the fit. They are light and airy, without being that tech material I can’t stand. At $32 each, they are a little on the pricier side, but they last forever and don’t get stinky. And they go on sale with decent inventory, so it’s manageable.
Honey Stinger Fuel
Fuel is so important, and I always like to have a stash of Honey Stinger gels and waffles in stock. A has a habit of confiscating said waffles, so it’s easier said than done. However, they all taste good, are easy on my stomach, and give me the energy I need. Proper fueling looks different for everyone, but these are the goodies that work best for me.
