Need a jacket so you can workout outdoors? Train in all kinds of weather? You can go bonkers looking at all the options on-line!

Let me save you the trouble. Being the gear goddess that I am, you can trust me that before buying any of these jackets, I researched and researched and RESEARCHED beforehand! That includes reading customer reviews, selecting the best materials, paying attention to weight and breathability, and of course, they had to be good looking! Read more

NEO-TOTE* Insulated Water Bottle Holders

Skitz Pick

I don’t like to drink warm water when I’m running outdoors. I like a nice cool stream of refreshment that perks me up. This need sparked a quest long ago. Unfortunately, the marketplace let me down. With every gadget known to man available on the web, ways to transport ice cold water  “on the go” isn’t one of them.

I’ve bought fuel belts, waste packs, Camelbaks– you name it– it’s probably in my closet. For runs lasting longer than an hour, I use a Fuel Belt with 2 plastic bottles. Works just fine but in 5 minutes the fluid is warm. 

I had to get creative. After experimenting with various types of bottles, I found these fantastic little “koozies” for the original plastic bottles. They help protect the fluid from the sun and provide good insulation.

Men’s Chaco Hipthongs & Women’s Orthaheel Thong Sandals

Skitz Pick

Relief for the feet!  Flip flops are not just for the pool or beach anymore! 

When your feet hurt, everything hurts. Having suffered for years with a messy foot injury, I know a good shoe when I FEEL it on my feet.

I thought I’d have to live in stability sneakers the rest of my life. While high heels are pretty much a “no way” for me, I have branched out to find comfortable shoes that are NOT UGLY!  Not a small task.  

Traditional flip flops offer very little support in the arch and none around the heel. Things have changed and stores like The Walking Company and Zappos.com, now sell comfortable and stylish “European style” shoes.  I now own brands made in Israel and Italy. American manufacturers are catching on. You can now find entire sections devoted to comfort shoes in department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom’s.  And they don’t look like something only your grandmother would wear!

Here are my top picks for fabulous flip flops for summer! They are pricey for “sandals” but your feet will thank you:) Read more

CEP Allsports Calf Sleeves

Skitz Pick

Call it “Spanx” for athletes!  I love compression gear!  I own compression shirts, shorts, capris, socks and now calf sleeves.

 I race in them and wear them to speed my recoveries from hard workouts.  The tightness feels like a massage while you’re working out.  Similar to taping, except without the restriction of movement, compression gear provides support in all the right places.

Available in white, black, red, green, pink, and blue
