Its that time of the year where I see all the cool gear I want and then have to hide my credit card from myself. If not I’d be in big debt. At least I can dream. That doesn’t cost much.
Hanson’s Race Circuit Entry – Hanson’s Running Shop manages many of the races in the area. For a single price I can get entries into a number of them. $135 gets entries to every race, a tech shirt, and a ticket to the end of year banquet. You can’t beat that deal.
Skora Form Shoes – I’ve been very intrigued by these shoes. They’re zero-drop and made from some high quality materials. Goat leather uppers and an outer sole so tough that I’ve heard of one runner getting 1000 miles out of them.
Brooks PureGrit – I love my Brooks PureCadence, but winter is coming and the trails have been calling my name. Both require a shoe with a little more traction. Enter the PureGrit, from the same PureProject family as my Cadences.Headlamp – Winter-time in Michigan leaves me in the dark for most of my runs. Granted my area is fairly lit with streetlights, but sometimes I’d feel safer with a headlamp. I have a cheapy headlamp for working in the dark, but its way too heavy for running.
Brooks Nightlife Gear – While I’m on the topic of night running, the Nightlife line from Brooks is awesome. I would love any and all of those items.
Wind/Weather Resistant Shell – My cold weather gear consists of multiple layers of long sleeve race shirts. It works fine for dry days around 30°, but I’m in serious need of an outer layer that blocks wind and keeps me dry when its snowing. Brooks Nightlife line has a sweet lightweight jacket.Injinji Socks – I don’t own any, but the general consensus from everyone I know who own a pair loves them.
Compression Socks/Sleeves – At the Detroit Freep, I started to cramp at mile 17 and by mile 23 it was in full effect. I can’t help but think compression socks/sleeves would have prevented the cramp for a few more miles. My running circle suggests CEP. Active.com usually has deals on ProCompression, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. They certainly are more affordable, though.
I can’t believe I forgot to add these as I’ve been eying them for a year now…
Brooks Equilibrium Wind Boxers – If I’m running PoHo again this January (and I am) I really want to have these. More [strategically placed] windblocking, needed for men. I’m recalling a Seinfield episode in my mind.
So you know, if you happen to win the $500 M Powerball tonight, why not share the wealth?
