Happy Spring! I hope you are all enjoying warmer days with more daylight and waving goodbye to the snow. Can you believe that 25% of 2015 is almost gone? How’s it going with your ONE goal this year?
Great gear makes all the difference, and this week I’ve enlisted a little help from two amazing women who are working towards their ONE goal of getting healthy while kicking butt. Madison is another Agent of WOW here at Zappos who convinced me to do Tough Mudder with her, and Meli runs our social media recruiting efforts, bringing in new members of the Zappos family.
My gear choices focus on the important things while hiking- staying warm and keeping hydrated. I stay prepared with a combination hydration bag & daypack by Osprey filled with hike essentials like sunscreen. Durable hiking boots by Vasque offer support and comfort all day and Injiji socks keep my feet extra happy. This sock may look a little different, but trust me, once you try them, you’ll wonder how you ever hiked or ran without them!
Meli G.’s crosstraining essentials:
“From the light and flowy Nike Extended Size Miler Tank to the sleek and beautiful Nike Victory Gym Tote, this plus size gym wear combo is the perfect choice for my daily workout. The vibrant colors, perfect fit and comfort these picks provide make me feel and look great during all types of workouts. From running to lifting and everything in between, these gym go-to pieces are perfect!”
Madison J.’s running essentials:
“I'm training for Tough Mudder this year, so I'm always on the lookout for gear that will go the distance as well as hold up to all the crazy obstacles in my path. That was my primary reason for all of my picks. The Under Armour Bra and compression shorts are both quick drying and moisture wicking. The Asics running shoes are designed to hold up to a triathalon and are the most comfortable pair I've ever owned! The Zensah compression socks help with shin splints and muscle fatigue, and they look adorable on. To really go the distance, you need to hydrate, and the hands-free Camelbak is perfect for that. Lastly, you need a way to carry your gear around and I love the functionality of a Nike bag that reminds me to run every day. I know I can accomplish all of my goals with the right equipment to help me along!”
