If I Had One Running Outfit…

The other day I was cleaning out my clothing, and I thought…what if I only had one running outfit for each season.

Most of the clothing I chose is similar to the post I wrote a post about my favorite styles for running in “bad weather.”

This post is unsponsored and many pieces are recent, but some are from a while back.

I’m always interested in other people’s favorite things.

PS: The Holiday season is coming up if you need my address…;)

If I Only Had One Running Outfit…Base Layers:

Favorite Sports Bra:

Brooks Moving Comfort Uprise: ($48.00)

I have yet to find anything that compares to the brand of Moving Comfort.  Moving Comfort only makes a few pieces of women’s apparel but specializes in sports bras.  There is a reason they are number one in the industry.  I’ve tried many other brands, and for me, these are the best.tim's dad and i

Moving Comfort has removable pads, don’t chafe and fit my broad shoulders (YAY swimming).  Working in running retail, I’ve tried most brands, and I truly believe Moving Comfort makes the best Sports Bras in the industry. They make sports bras for any size.

If I Only Had One Running Outfit…Socks:

CEP Low Cut Socks ($20.00)

Right now I love my CEP Compression Socks.  After my ankle injury, I wanted socks that promote blood flow to my feet as well.

I’ve got compression for my compression…

Because my calves and my feet are not proportional, I prefer the calf sleeves and socks (versus just the knee-high socks).  CEP is medical grade compression which means that it does promote blood flow more than other brands.  Since my calves do get tight frequently, they are the best for me.

Long sleeve:  This one by Saucony.  It’s thick and warm, but it’s also reversible.  That way, when I’m getting ready in the dark in the morning, it doesn’t matter if it’s inside out. 😉

Arm Warmers: Oiselle (similar style $38.00)

They no longer sell the arm warmers I currently use.  I like that the Oiselle arm warmers have thumb holes but also that they stay on my arms without falling down.

If I Only Had One Running Outfit…Short-Sleeve:

Tank-Top: Saucony Dash.  

It’s seamless, lightweight and breathable. I have the tank, short sleeve and long sleeve and it’s one of my favorite lines.  I highly recommend any of their tops.

If I Only Had One Running Outfit…Shorts:

Short: Lululemon What the Sport Short.  I like these because they are longer, having a pocket and dry quickly.  In my luck with rain, this is necessary.

Pants: Tracksmith Bislett Pants: You need shorts and pants so it counts.  The Tracksmith Bislett Pants are awesome for running or lounging.  I’ve recently tried Tracksmith because the Tracksmith sizing fits me well. I’m usually a women’s small and it works. Tracksmith is a newer company and there aren’t a lot of Tracksmith reviews yet, but the shorts are high quality and the Tracksmith Bislett Pants have stirrup, which stays down for running and are comfortable.
