1 Funny Top

This is me.

2 The Right Bright Shoes

Get fitted for the right pair of shoes for your body and sport.

3 Motivational Top


4 Sunnies for Outdoor Fitness Activities

Protect your peepers without sweating all over your pricey aviators.

5 Fleece for Colder Temps

The key to cold-weather workouts: layering.

6 Cute Cooler-weather Top

You can work out in cooler temps but still look cute, right?

7 Running Bra/Top

Gotta keep the girls secure!

8 The Right Socks

Trust me, the right socks can mean the difference between a complete pretty pedi and the agony of missing toenails. #beenthere

9 Comfy Shorts

Yes, chafing is a thing, so make sure your shorts fit properly.

10 Handana

This ultra-absorbent sweatband fits on your hand, and makes keeping sweat out of your eyes a snap.

11 Headbands

To keep your hair off your face and neck.

12 IPhone Armband

Try on a few before you buy one - these, too, can chafe.

13 Running Belt

It's hard to run while you're carrying your keys, phone, and ID, so I'd suggest one of these.

14 Yoga Mat

Basically to keep you from sweating all over the floor.

15 Strobe Light

... to keep you safe during night-time runs.

16 Hand-Held Water Bottle

Not all fitness events will have water available, so stay hydrated and happy with one of these!

17 IPod Shuffle

It's old-school but so light-weight and easy to carry - just clip it on and your workout playlist is ready to go!

18 Map My Run App

I love this app, especially the highly addictive Challenges. OMG. Try it. Try it now!

19 Jawbone up Fitness Tracker

If you don't like this one, try FitBit or Garmin. They'll help you keep track of everything fitness-related.

20 Gu Gel

These come in all kinds of flavors, but the only one I like is Chocolate Outrage, because it tastes like chocolate pudding. Yum!

21 Nuun

Drop one of these tablets into your water bottle to replenish your electrolytes.

22 Mamma Chia Squeeze

Want a protein boost without the bad fats? These handy (and tasty) pouches will do the trick.
