Running is the best and most accessible sport to get in shape and stay fit. It can be done everywhere, anytime and without paiing for a monthly gym membership. There are no restrictions on how you do your running workouts, but I want to show you my personal running setup which may improve your next run a lot.
My favourite shoe: Salomon Sonic 3 Balance
Due to different foot sizes and shapes, is it very hard to pick one perfect shoe for everyone. But, my favourite running shoe is the Salomon Sonic 3 Balance. The shoe weights a little bit over 200 gramm and has a heel/toe drop of 8 mm. Salomon used two types of cushioning foam, one for propulsion and one for shock absorption. It has a very good balance between comfort and firm response. So the shoe offers performance without compromising comfort. Another great feature is the breathable upper and the sticky grip, wich makes it the best running shoe i used in my life.
My favourite running belt: Salomon Pulse Belt
If you want to get rid of the feeling that one side of your body is heavier than the other, I recommend you the Salomon Pulse Belt. The comfortable elastic belt is perfect for short and long runs in the city or in the nature. The belt is adjustable in its length so that nearly every person can use it. It has two stretch-fabric pockets where you can fit bottles up to 500 ml and one secret pocket for important things like keys or your cellphone. The belt is not waterproof so it could happen that your stuff gets a bit soggy, but the polyamid material dries pretty fast and can be used for the next run within some hours.
My favourite headphones: Plantronics Backbeat Fit 3200
The Plantronics Backbeat Fit 3200 are the perfect headphones for running. They have comfortable, soft and good fitting ear hooks so you can not lose them in all types of of running styles. They play music for up to 24 hours and have a IP57 water, dust and sweat protection. The powerful, noise isolating earbud has clear heights, natural mids and deep bass. The awareness mode offers you more safety because, you can hear all ambient noises and talk to your partner on the run.
My favourite running gloves: Mechanix Wear Original
The Mechanix Wear Original is a comprehensive, allrounder glove. They are very lightweighted, breathable and abrasion resistant gloves. Due to the high quality marterials like spandex, thermoplastic rubber, leatherette and temperature regulating fabric inserts, they are very comfortable and perfect for every temperature. The infinitely adjustable Velcro fastener and the elastic fibers adujst themself to individual hand shapes. The gloves also contain a carabiner so you can fasten them to your running belt and wont lose them if you take them of while running.
My favourite headlamp: Black Diamond Spot 325
If you want to run at the dawn or at the late evening, and be able to see the way in front of you, I recommend using a headlamp. The Black Diamond Spot 325 has a long lasting battery in combination with a bright beam. You can vary the brightness of the lamp and also safe you last used brightness so it will not be too bright or dark the next time you turn the lamp on. It is also splash and dust resistent so you do not have to worry about it on a rainy or a very dry day.
