Let's be honest, I am not a real avid runner. However, I can admit that I am a professional when it comes to any type of walking. Walking in neighborhoods, walking along the greenbelt, walking by Lady Bird Lake, you name it, I'll most likely love to walk on, or along it.
I wanted to put together some of my favorite walking essentials in case any of you other ladies (or men really) need an extra hand (or hip pack in this case) while getting your daily walks or hikes in.
Herschel Hip Pack // Love this ginormous hip pack, as it holds a ton of stuff. I originally bought this for hiking purposes, but found out it's great for walks too. I usually carry my phone in here, along with my water bottle, pepper spray (us girls need to always be careful when walking alone throughout the nature trails!) and a granola bar in case I get hungry along the way. Not to mention, the back of this hip pack is padded, making it very comfortable and easy to wear.
S'well Water Bottle // This water bottle is the BEST! It keeps your water super cold for a long duration of time. Perfect for Texas Summer's.
New Balance Trainers // These shoes are awesome! I wore them all throughout my trip to Mongolia last year, and came back with a new found love for them. They can be worn with either workout attire, or even a pair of jeans and a tee. They are very comfortable for everyday wear, however I have to admit whenever I do have the urge to run they aren't my favorite running shoes.
*I can't seem to find an exact link for the New Balance Trainers but they are the 574 style Charcoal & Rose Gold.*
Hope that helps for all you fellow walkers!
