Three running-related things I’m loving right now…
1. Reebok’s Performance Slim Motion Fit Capri
I picked these up at Dick’s Sporting Goods after Christmas (for $28 – score!). I love capris – I never wear full length running tights – but I only have 3 pairs from lululemon. I love my lulus but didn’t feel like spending an exorbitant amount of money on what I’d consider an “extra” pair. I was totally shocked that the Reebok capris fit better than Nike. They have a nice wide (but tight) waistband so they don’t fall down. They are not baggy in the calves like pictured below – they fit just like running tights would.
Another Dick’s purchase after Christmas – I think the brand was Princeton Tec? This is a definite must for the next 2 months. I was using Knuckle Lights but they started to dim and I could only use 1 at a time since I also carry a water bottle. When paired with a hat, I feel less like a coal miner.
3. Amphipod Handheld In-Touch
I love Amphipod’s handheld water bottles. I’ve been waiting and waiting for them to come out with a handheld that also holds your iPhone. Finally! This is just as comfortable as their other handhelds and I barely notice the slight increase in weight. Another must for dark mornings!
What are you loving right now?
I use my water bottle and both knuckle lights! I feel like a bag lady with so much stuff but it works! I have to change the batteries a lot but I still like them. My headlamp is a cheap POS though, maybe if I actually had a good one I’d like that better. Dark runs are certainly the name of the game for the next few months! I just got Saucony and Pearl Izumi capris, love them! My first capris!
barney butter (almond butter) — how did I just find out about this?!
Hi! I am a long-time reader but first-time commenter. I love capris and found some on Eastbay (their brand) last fall for just under $20. They are great!
I also live in the Philly area. By any chance were you running at Valley Forge last Saturday? I think we may have passed each other on the trail. That would be cool because you would be the first person I would recognize from blogging!
always looking for a good pair of capris! Im really loving my Mizuno Wave Riders right now – first time trying the shoe and they are great! Happy weekend!
I never could love my knuckle lights, and swapped them out for a nice headlamp recently as well. 😉
The non winter temperatures!!!

Right now I’m loving the treadmill 🙂 I can’t believe you never wear full length pants!
Ohhhh, I don’t know how I didn’t see this post. BUT, I am loving all 3 here. I don’t wear long tight pants because of my thunder thighs. I know, I know… they’re good for running up them hills and all, but sheesh – I’ll stick with the capris.
Head lamp I so need (btw, how do you look so cute when you’re going out for a run!). And that handheld waterbottle/iPhone — Man, Pedro is going to be sooo mad at you!!!! HAHAAH
