Essential Gear for Training to Run a Marathon

Stacking miles in the proper running gear is essential and can make all the difference during a difficult run

I have all kinds of sports bras, tights and tanks spilling out my drawers...and unfortunately, my laundry basket. But, the love is REAL -- for my reliable gear, that is.

Stacking miles in the proper running gear is essential and can make all the difference during a difficult run.

Here are a few pieces that I've worn on repeat over the past five weeks.

1. Nike Dry - Women's Running Tank

Nike

I'm a fan of how breathable and light this tank feels. It's like I'm running tankless and on extremely hot days, this is the goal.

2. Nike 3" Rival Woven - Women's Running Shorts

Nike

These are my favorite for hot long runs and the pockets are a must. I always need to stash my key, headphones and cards inside them. The hem lines keep my legs cool and no sweat buildup -- thanks to the magic of Dri-FIT.

3. Nike Dri-Fit Cool Breeze - Women's Running Top

Nike

This top is comfy and lightweight, as well. Plus, you can see me after the sunsets. Reflective power!

4. Nike Power Speed - Women's Running Capris

Nike

5. Nike Free RN Flyknit - Women's Running Shoe

Nike

I'm a huge fan of Flyknit technology in general, but these are on another level. Imagine a cloud hugging your foot as it hits the pavement. Shoe heaven!

6. Nike Pro Classic Padded - Women's Medium Support Sports Bra

Nike

7. Nike Elite Lightweight No-Show Tab Running Socks

Nike

Two words. No blisters!
