Over the past few months, running has become a big part of my life. It’s helped me meet new people, get into great shape and do things I never thought I’d do—like train for half-marathon! Since I’m taking my running seriously and doing it often, I’ve started to create a mental list of things I’m lusting after.
The thing is, this list keeps growing, and I’m afraid I’m going to forget something—which is why I’ve decided to share it with all of you! (Side Note: My birthday’s in October, but I’ll happily accept early gifts, haha.)
1. Tiger Tail (Source)
I remember reading about the Tiger Tail over on Carrots ‘n’ Cake, and it’s definitely something I’d love to have! Rumor has it that this bad boy is even better at releasing muscle tension than a foam roller, and that’s saying a lot! Being able to apply more pressure to areas like my quads and outer thighs would help with recovery after runs.
2. Running Skirt (Source)
Now that it’s well into spring and warmer weather is finally here, I’ve decided that I need a running skirt—obviously. The idea of looking oh-so-cute while running my ass off like a machine makes me happy in so many ways. A lululemon skirt isn’t necessarily a must, but it would definitely be a welcome addition to my running wardrobe.
3. Inserts (Source)
Though this item isn’t quite so glamorous, it’s one that will benefit my running. After my long runs, my feet (specifically the balls of my feet) have been killing me. The discomfort subsides after a few hours, but it definitely makes the last few miles of my runs and the next few hours afterward less than pleasant. I have no idea what type of inserts would be the most helpful, but I do think they’d alleviate the pain.
OK, so my list wasn’t as long as I originally thought. Either that or I’ve already forgotten some stuff—probably the latter. Anyway, I hope to add some of these items to my running gear collection soon and cross them off my lust list!
