Runner's Gift Guide: Fall Running Must Haves

The seasons are definitely changing here in Wisconsin. I'll be honest: I am not a huge fan of the summer. I think she is a cruel, sweaty mistress and I am always relieved to roll into Fall.

This time of year, I start to struggle with dressing appropriately for my runs. I've gotten used to sleeveless tanks and itty-bitty running shorts to combat the insanity of running on 100 degree days. But now, our temps are starting to drop little by little (AMEN!) This past week, I was able to work in some of my running capris and I even carried a light jacket. Fall and winter running are notoriously unpredictable, so a gal has to be prepared for all outdoor running conditions. This got me thinkin' - I NEED NEW GEAR!

Let's check out some of my favorites for keeping my fall marathon training fast, functional and fashionable.
Women's New Balance 1600 Marathon/Road Racing Flat, $110

Women's Northface Stormy Trail Jacket in Razzle Pink, $169

Women's Saucony Omni LX Tight II, $65

Lululemon Track Time Jacket, $128
Northface Coolmax Arm Warmer, $32
Women's Puma Faas 350 S, $85


  1. Hey there! I tried to leave a comment on another post, but I don't think it ever went through. Oh well :)
    My name is Laura and I blog over at Backstage Balance - I'm also from the Milwaukee area, and also training for long distance events this fall!
    I'm loving all of the hot pink on these running accessories :) Definitely my favorite color for athletic apparel.

  2. Good post. You talk about nice shoes. this shoes is best through this situation. But you must know about plantar fasciitis. Some trainers protect us from plantar fasciitis. so be careful about it. Thanks of this post. I am waiting for your next post.
