Shoes are SO personal and body-specific though. My best advice is to go to a running specialty store and get professionally fit. Go somewhere that has a great return policy for if you run in them and HATE them. If you’re local to Indianapolis, definitely go to The Runners Forum. There you can get fit, a gait analysis, and if you run in and hate the shoes, return/exchange them within 30 days.
Anything Moving Comfort brand. Seriously. Whether you are a barely A cup or a quadruple H, they make something that will hold the girls in and make your run comfortable.
I absolutely LOVE these shorts made by Nike that have built in tight shorts under them. Any other shorts I wear, it doesn’t matter how much Body Glide I wear, I chafe. These prevent that.
I originally bought an older version on an open-box deal from Amazon for $40 and loved them. When I went to replacing things after the fire, these were a must. And, the updated version is AMAZING. These are bluetooth headphones that offer great sound quality, excellent battery life, and on-ear buttons for pause, skip, and volume. They also come with several tip options to fit even your weird ears.
***Remember–you CANNOT wear headphones or have ANY electronics (including phones, mp3 players, etc) during any USAT sanctioned event.
I love my Nathan Speed 2. It holds two 9 oz water bottles, my phone, my car key, a couple of gels, and probably more if I tried. The bottles are easy to open and close for on-the-go filling during longer races. It doesn’t flop around. And, it’s comfortable to wear.
I also have a 4 bottle version for the longer days.
Spi belt. It holds all the other crap.
