What I’m Wearing to Run – Running Gear Favorites for October
It’s still pretty hot in Southern California! But the mornings are very overcast and dark. So I got a new pair of Running Sunglasses with yellow lenses that help me see in low light conditions but also block UV rays when the sun starts to peek out. I didn’t get to put them in this picture because they were delivered right after I snapped it. But I tried them this morning and I’m loving ’em so far!
Here’s a list of my favorite running gear for Late Summer / Early Fall runs…

How to do a Flat Runner for Instagram or Facebook:
- Lay all the clothes you’ll wear for your next run (or race) on the ground. They can be arranged just like you’d wear them from head to toe – like a FLAT Runner is on the the ground. Or you can lay out each item of clothing or gear however it best fits in the picture.
- Stand over it and snap a picture.
- Share it on Instagram using your favorite running hashtags – like #RunEatRepeat and #FlatRunner
Tip to get more followers on Instagram:
A secret to getting more followers on Instagram is to tag or mention brands in your caption. People who are scrolling through popular hashtags will see your flat runner and want to know what running gear you’re loving right now. Sharing that information is helpful! And when you help others on social they’re likely to follow you for more.
And beyond that – many brands are very active on Instagram and Facebook. They’ll see that they’re tagging and show ya some love. Some accounts share customer posts on their feed or in their stories too!
It’s a great way to get seen and increase followers both by peers and brands!
