5 running must-haves

I just came across a list of 5 running “essentials” that were posted at Huffington Post. The list was intended for people just starting out, and who were aiming for completing a 5K.

That article listed the following 5 items as “essential”

  • compression socks
  • wicking socks
  • running storage (like a flip belt)
  • wireless headphones
  • muscle roller

Most of what’s on the list I agree with. Except for the last item …I don’t know that a roller is a “running essential.”

Really, the only essential for running is a pair of running shoes. Everything else is a want, not a need. That being said, here are my 5 running must-haves:

  • Shoes
  • Phone
  • Wireless headphones
  • Compression sleeves for my shins
  • Hat
