Favorite Summer Products Pt 2

It’s hard to believe summer is almost over.  I say that about every month or season but the summer is truly flying by.  Pretty soon we will be into fall and marathon season! Or pumpkin season or cross country season…whatever your jive is!

About a month ago, I posted my favorite summer gear.  Throughout the summer I have found more gear I really like using.

This post isn’t sponsored but it’s products I have enjoyed using and would recommend! 

Clothing:

The Saucony Dash top:

It’s seamless and long.  I’ve worn this top to run in as well as to work in.  I love how soft it is.  While Saucony is currently sold out of many sizes, a little birdie told me they are getting a bunch of new colors this fall.  I will probably buy every color.  I will sit at my computer and press refresh until it’s available.

The Lululemon Long Line Bra

Personally I prefer to run in longer sports bras.  I feel like racing crop tops don’t exist unless you are an elite but that is probably for good reason.  The Lululemon Long long bra is the next closest thing.  It’s a little longer than a sports bra but not a full top.  It’s comfortable and it wicks away sweat really well.  I linked to Lulu’s sport bra section because they make some of my favorites!  The last I checked they were out of this exact top but they have very similar ones.

10% Saucony A6 Racing Flat

Can you tell I’m on the Saucony train right now?

Running Gear:

I still love my R8 foam roller. I’m carrying it over from the first summer post because it has been such a helpful device for recovery. I have found I can foam roll better than anything else. While it is $120, I do think the price tag is worth it.

Garmin 10:

I’ve been using my Garmin 10 more and more lately. I’m still not using it for pace but for mileage.  For my track workouts I just use a stop watch and paper.  I know I should probably upgrade eventually…I have thought about buying the 220 or 225.  They look cool and I want to be in the cool kids club.

Fashion:

Crop and cut out dresses

Why do I like these?  I don’t know.  I’ve bought two and I loved them both.  Taylor Swift would be proud.

This one I got at Ruelala a few weeks ago.

Question for you: What products are you enjoying this summer?

  1. This might be a stupid question but do you prefer different shoes for walking vs running? I don’t run much anymore but I walk alllll the time especially on the treadmill and I was curious if I should get different shoes. (I’m due for a new pair anyway!)

    • I prefer my running shoes for walking too. I generally retire an old pair of running shoes to walking or hanging out. Walking specialty shoes are limited plus they font breath very well.

  2. I bought two pairs of mac roga shorts from oiselle at the beginning of the summer (the super short ones) and I LOVE them. I’ve never had non-spandex shorts that short before, but they’re more comfortable than spandex and have a pocket that will fit my keys + ID.

    I had one Nike pro sports bra that I really liked, so I went ahead and bought a few pairs for pretty cheap on ebay and love them.

    I use a Garmin 220, which I really like… but I don’t really know what additional features it has compared to the 10 (random, but have you checked out DC Rainmaker’s posts about GPS watches and other sports technology stuff? his reviews are unparalleled)

    That’s everything I can think of that I’ve started using recently. I love that Lululemon long line bra! I’m not a big fan of running in just sports bras around Philly (the stares…) but that might be a little less conspicuous.

  3. I have to try Saucony! They do a lot of demos and free trials at my local running store. Next time they’re there I should give them a try. This summer I’m loving my sunglasses for running and my saltstick caps! It helps me not cramp up or get nauseous when it’s really warm out. Total life saver!

  4. I have never seen that lululemon top but I really like it! In the summer even wearing tank tops over sports bras is uncomfortable, so that’s the perfect length. I haven’t seen anything like it in our store here. I never used to be a lululemon fan but now it’s pretty much all I wear. It’s a legitimate problem.

  5. I’ve moved from Mizuno back to Saucony lately. Although its just the kinvara which I am in love with! I haven’t bought new gear (minus shoes) in such a long time because I have such an excessive amount. An entire 6 drawer dresser lol. But I am now getting rid of some that has seen better days so can’t wait to replenish (although my bank account surely can).

  6. God, I love cut out dresses. If it has even a triangle cut out I am intrigued immediately! As you know, I’m on the Saucony train as well! Love everything.

  7. Love that sports bra! I was on their page and it’s not there. But I know that’s how lulu is, they make something and then it goes away. If it ever comes back I am so going to buy one!

    • I’m sorry Allison, I thought I mentioned I thought they were sold out but had similar styles! I hate that too…I wish they would just stock more of each product!
