Favorite training gear, and why?!

I am currently in training for the NYC Marathon in November, and am about to try my first pair of New Balance 890's with REVlite shoes (PSYCHED!).  I love new gear and encorporating new products into my training regimine so I'm curious what some of your favorite training gear is??  My new shoes should be here in a couple of days for their first test, my long weekend run where we will bond over 13 miles through Prospect Park in Brooklyn NY.  I'll let you know how they feel, they only weigh 9.7 ounces (less than 1 Apple) so I should be flying through my runs!

    I am a grad student and on a tight budget, but I have found a few things that I have to splurge on. Good socks (I love Asics), and good dry-fit clothing (esp in the Texas heat and humidity!).

    Good shoes are a must, and I am looking forward to trying my NB 890's that just came today!

    Ladies, what did you think of the shoes?! I've run in them twice now and I can't believe I like them so much. I say that simply because I swore I'd never wear another running shoe other than Mizuno. I'm pretty excited to have found something new that I really am performing well in! Cross your fingers that continues.
