You don’t need much for the run, but what you do need must meet your needs!

When I started triathlon, all I had was run gear. With a wife and two young kids, I needed to streamline my purchases and budget carefully.

During races I wear the race kit provided by the Pulse Endurance team, manufactured by Zoot.

shortsBrooks Sherpa 5″ Shorts
Love these shorts! Very light. Pocket in back holds keys, gels, etc. Side pockets can also carry a couple of gels each. Great for both fast and distance runs!

Serves as my all-around tri watch. You can get by very happily with the Garmin Forerunner 735 XT, as I did for a couple of years.
