Marathon Apparel
Try it before you buy it!

Selecting the right marathon apparel will help you look and feel more comfortable. Itís one thing to wear good-looking uncomfortable clothes to the office or for a night out, but running 26.2 miles in non-breathable or non-fitting clothing is going to cause problems. Check that. Major problems!

You will need a complete exercise clothing makeover. For instance, basketball shorts are not the same as running shorts, which are much lighter, help hold things in place and have a cool little pocket to keep your license, bank card and a house key. Here's a list of the best running shorts.

Running shirts need to be breathable and a good shirt provides a nice breeze when it's warmer out and helps keep in the warmth when itís cooler out. There are many types of cold and heat gear to choose from. Here's a list of the best running shirts.

While Iím not a huge fan of running pants, they still do serve a purpose. Theyíre good for keeping heat in and cold out. They also help warm up your legs faster. Running tights are similar - good for cold weather or warming up your body faster. Here's a list of the best running pants.

Running hats are a great way to keep your body temperature higher or cooler as well as keep the sun off your face. Nike even has a running hat with a pocket for your iPod. Here's a list of the running hats and caps.

I support my growing family through this website.

If you find this page on Marathon Apparel as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links such as running apparel or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

The biggest help is to use this link to running apparel when you get your goodies. It costs you nothing and is a huge help. Amazon usually has the best prices and service, which is why I've used it since before this website existed. I recommend it personally.

Also, if you're thinking about building a website, check out Site Build It! It's how I built this website and more importantly started making additional monthly income.

Thanks for reading!

iPhone Runmeter 5 Stars!

Runmeter is my favorite iPhone running app. It tracks pace, distance and is easily integrated with Twitter, Facebook and DailyMile. Best part about it... it talks to you and gives you updates from your social feeds when some replies to your running update. I hear "Great Job" and "Keep Running" a lot. Some even try to sing to me! :) I love the running community so much! Download here:
