The Ideal Attire For A Marathon Runner
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You do not need to empty your till to be able to afford gearing up for a marathon. Although GPS running watches are a must-have, the first and most important investment would be an appropriate pair of running shoes that will support your feet and body. During your training period, the only thing literally in between you and the road will be your running shoes. Therefore you can expect to spend about £50-100 on these.

Don't just ask someone else to go and buy the shoes for you. Watches with GPS can be purchased by going through an online catalogue, but running shoes require more personal attention. Along with the cash investment, spare some time to go and visit a store, try on a variety of shoes and decide what's best for you. When you explain your training plans to the staff at the store, they will have a better idea of your needs and will advice you on the perfect models to buy. Some shoe stores also have treadmills where you can fit on the shoes and go on a run to see if they are comfortable enough for you. Furthermore, stores that specialize in running shoes also have up-to-date information regarding group runs and upcoming races that you can participate in to improve your training.

As for accessories, a GPS running watch is needed not only for the marathon but also during your training period. It can track your running speed, distance and other relevant data which will be useful for monitoring your training progress. With attire, you need to equip yourself with a shirt, shorts, socks and appropriate underwear. It is not advisable for any of these clothing items to be made of cotton. Instead, look for synthetic or woollen materials that breathe, prevent moisture and can fight odour much better than cotton material. This way, you will be comfortable during long training runs and also there is a less risk of chafing. As with every item, you can find premium prices at premium quality. But a good quality shirt can be found at a reasonable rate at most retail clothing stores.

For remembering to stay hydrated on long runs, you can give instructions to watches with GPS to ring an alarm at every interval of 15 minutes for example and this will remind you to take a drink of fluids. Waist belts, hand held bottles are a good and convenient option. You also get vests that can hold on to a bottle as well as other essential items such as mobile, keys and ID. If you are training during the warmer months, sunglasses and a hat for UV protection is required. For cooler months wear a jacket that can protect you from cool weather as well as allow you to breathe comfortably.
