I will never forget the feeling I had last year when we picked up my packet for the 2013 NYC Marathon. My nerves were on the highest level possible and I couldn't focus on shopping - my favorite thing to do at marathon expo's. The one thing that I remembered most was Asics huge booth of official merchandise. I ended up with a few race day essentials due to the weather on race day - a beanie, gloves and arm sleeves. I also got a jacket and a coffee mug - yet I wanted it all.
ASICS Gel Kayano 21 NYC & ASICS Gel Nimbus 16 NYC
The one item I regret not picking up the most last year was the signature shoe of the NYC Marathon. Luckily, ASICS made special editions of both the Gel Kayano and Gel Nimbus for the 2014 Marathon. I love the splatter paint embellishments.
TCS NYC Marathon Asics Women's Emma Singlet
One of my favorite shirts to run in will proudly represent my accomplishments of the NYC Marathon. It will be great to wear a shirt from this race on my daily runs.
2014 TCS NYC Marathon Asics Women's Lite-Show Favorite Half Zip
I'm quite obsessed with this half zip. I generally run at night and this lightweight long sleeve training shirt will be awesome in the winter.
NYC Marathon Short Sleeve Tee
I absolutely must have get a short sleeve shirt for this years race. Aside from the shoes, this was my biggest non-purchase regret from 2013. I have my official long sleeve tech shirt but never get to wear it since I live in FL.
NYC Marathon Thermopolis 2-in-1 beanie
This was my lifesaver in 2013. I was cold and wind kills my ears. This beanie fit snugly over my ears and didn't give me earaches while wearing headphones.
