When my house burned down, yeah it sucked, big time. But the nice thing to come of it all has been replacing my gear. Has it been upsetting? sure. stressful? of course. But I have been able to update everything I owned with the newest, latest and greatest gear. all I need now is a sick set of wheels!
Before the fire, I was running in Brooks pure connects. I still love those shoes, but I decided to give the Newton Elites a try since they last twice as long, have a shorter heel drop ratio of only 2mm and they help fix your gait. They come in beautiful colors and I love them! They do take some time to adjust to but if you are looking to develop a better stride and shoes that you don’t have to replace every two months you should consider giving Newtons a try. They come in lots of great colors, are bright and beautiful! Womens Newton Running Distance Elite
I used to own the Garmin 210 and I loved that watch, but since I was going to be focusing more on triathlons I decided to get the 910XT instead. It is waterproof (YAY) and it counts your distance in the pool which is awesome. If you get the triathlon bundle it comes with a speed and cadence sensor to attach to your bike along with a bike mount. I love this watch, it does cost a pretty penny, but it’s worth it!

My newest addition which I love has been the Bluetooth headphones. Yes, they run out of battery unlike regular ones but it makes not having to deal with the cord so much easier. Plus they offer USA Triathlon members a discount. They fit your ear, the inside of it, are comfortable and do not fall out. They are sweat resistant and you can adjust the cord to fit you properly.
