Glory, honor, and merchandise. One of the best parts of running a marathon is getting a bunch of beautiful running gear for the upcoming season. I love scoping out all the World Marathon gear to see the new concepts and designs they came up with.
New Balance designed this year’s racing gear, and I’m more than a little envious of what they came up with. I had Asics the year that I ran, and everything felt pretty lackluster. This is definitely a step in the right direction. The splatter theme is awesome. And gold is my favorite metal, so double whammy.
Here are a few of my favorites that dropped today. They’re so good, that I might just sneak into the expo and shill out a few dollars myself. For the life of me, I can’t get the links to work on the slideshow, so they’re all posted for you at the end of this post.
Pro tip: Buy your gear towards the end of the expo or after the marathon. Usually, they start selling at clearance prices almost immediately.
