What’s Your Favorite Training Tech? (Instagram Photo Recap)

Since there are hundreds of high-tech watches, fitness trackers, apps and gear available to marathon runners, we asked our Instagram Ambassadors to share their favorite training tech with us this week:

Ty Godwin favors his Nathan hydration vest. He says, “Plenty of liquids for your long run without weighing you down.”

Sure, JD Pooley has a Garmin watch that records every step he takes, but in his opinion, nothing can beat a sheet of paper with his training plan on it.

Lindsay Meeker uses a New Balance heart rate monitor to pace herself. “Nothing worse than pushing too hard with several miles to go!” she says. Lindsay also uses a Body Media armband to track her everyday fitness & activity (Bonus: It links to other health & fitness apps on her phone, plus monitors sleep and tracks her daily steps/calories burnt!), and says “It has been instrumental in my weight loss and training!”
