Hello ... Fall?
First grey day in over 3 months it seems...time to light the wood stove, dig out the gloves and (gasp) try to find those darn tights. If you are still in denial that fall is here and winter is on the way then look away my friends...I feel your pain. Bookmark this blog and come on back once you have moved into the acceptance phase;)...
I often get asked what my favourite _____ is for _____. Gear is super personal but I am always happy to share what works for me. The following are items that I pretty much use on a daily basis. They have been tested, tried and are true to me!
My Favourite Fall Gear
Looks like they aren't listed on the Sugoi website anymore...but you can probably still pick them up at ELM Super sponsor, Extreme Runners...while supplies last...
4. Garmin GPS.
So small, so acurate, so awesome to be able to track your route, speed, elevation, time and heart rate all at once! If you don't have a Garmin by now you must really not know what you are missing. Of course you CAN live without one...but if your biggest hobbies are all in the great outdoors and you like numbers (must like numbers) then why would you want to?
I have the 405...which is now the 410 and love it.
Pick one up in Courtenay at Extreme Runners...
5. Spooky Mini Gloves.
You may laugh but I love these little gloves! Thicker (and bigger) than those little $1 mini gloves AND covered in glow in the dark ghosts and goblins, these gloves are just perfect for fall and spring. They keep my hands just the right temperature during my runs and while teaching outdoors. Not too mention how cute they are;)
I just picked up a pair at Canadian Tire in Courtenay for $2. Have also seen them at Capitol Iron on Victoria.
6. Larabar. Chocolate Peanut Butter to be exact.
I love to make my own energy balls and bars but sometimes the cupboards are bare and I need to grab something to go. I turn my nose up at most packaged energy bars but the Larabars are an exception- they taste great and are good for you. No chemicals or preservatives or additives. Just dates, nuts and the rest. Like peanut butter...and chocolate...Need I say more?
You can check out all the flavours online here... and you can get boxes of them at Superstore...yum.
Those are my favourite fall things right now! I would love to hear what gear is keeping you happy and comfortable out there right now! What's your favourite fall gear?
