Friday Five: Brands to Love


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

This week, the theme is Brands to Love

Here are the 5 Brands that I Love:

1. Mizuno for shoes


Running shoe brands…I’ve tried them all and at one time or another have loved them.  Currently I love Mizuno.


2RunningSkirts and SkirtSports for skirts

I only run in skirts and wear quite a few different brands… I usually buy what’s on sale. If I had a choice,  I would buy them from Runningskirts and SkirtSports. I love the length of their skirts and the 2 pockets.

3. ProCompression for socks

Stockadeathon - November

My ankles love compression socks.  I also wear different brands but ProCompression has lots of colors and they are often on sale. (Yes, price does matter.) And they are tight enough to work but not impossible to put on.


4.  Champion for running clothes

Thank you Target for carrying this brand.  I have their hats, socks, jackets, shirts, skirts, tights…. You can’t beat them for the price.

love this jacket, hat, skirt and tights – all Champion

Turning Point - July

love this tank, skirt and hat

5.  GU for fuel

Fuel is as important as clothes in running a race.  GU has gotten me through all my long runs and long races.  It gives me energy. They have a variety of flavors and some without caffeine.  They don’t upset my stomach.

Happy Running! What brands do you love??

  1. Love all the cute colorful picks!! I do not own a pair of compression socks, I do have sleeves, but no socks…yet.
    I can’t do gu, so I use sport beans if I need something, but I rarely fuel on a run.
