When I started running all that I knew I had to have was a pair of running shoes, comfortable socks, a sweat shirt and my ever reliable running shorts which I’ve been using since Track & Field days. Soon as my runs went as often as twice to thrice a week to five, six times with the frequent visits at the gym for cycling, yoga and cross training; the essentials has increased and varied according to its need.
Wearing the right shoe, apparel and gadgets makes a whole difference in every work out. I actually live and work with my Reebok’s on, it sure fits my active lifestyle. Here’s a list of my essentials:
3. Reebok EasyTone Sneakers ( For Walking, Leg Work )

7. Garmin Forerunner 305
bought this baby with my hard earned savings on November 30, 2010 for Standard Chartered Marathon
8. Fury Shades & Phiten

9. TRX Fitness Anywhere SuperVisor by Headsweats & Reebok Cap
Shout out to Tracy of TRX Fitness Anywhere San Francisco, CA for sending me these fabulous helpful SuperVisor Headsweats and Race Cap. Thanks to Tricky also for his lucky red Reebok Cap.
12. Pocari Sweat
My Aunt has been sending me tons of Pocari from Japan even before it reached Manila. It has been a huge factor whenever I need to aid myself from fever and fatigue. I’m a fan of the Pocari Sport.
Aside from these things, SLEEP is the most essential amongst all. COLD BATH and Chocolate drinks post race and proper nutrition. These things give comfort during a workout and courses through the day but nothing beats the lifstyle change of taking good care of yourself everyday from the food you eat until the amount of sleep you bank each day.
