I’m training for a marathon and Prime Day is a great time to stock up on running essentials for less
Prime Day, the annual two-day festival hosted by Amazon each summer, always offers plenty of discounts on big-ticket purchases that can help runners (cough Garmin Prime Day Deals cough), but it can also be useful for buying more prosaic items that you know you’ll need and if you make a deal now, you can save some money in the long run.
I competed for a spot in this year’s London Marathon (lucky for me) and I’ve been three weeks into this sub 3 hour marathon training plan and oh my god I’ve been running a lot. To the point where I’m looking to find clean running socks (and I’m well stocked to contribute to our roundup of the best running socks).
I attended a London Marathon media event yesterday and also tried the gait analysis and heard from this year’s main charity partner, the British Heart Foundation. (opens in a new tab) the conversation turned to long run feeding. That means gels and sports drinks, which I have little direct experience with. I need to start practicing mid-run carb eating and when is the best time to start this weekend?
So, armed with a shopping list of socks and supplements, I dove into the quagmire of Prime Day deals to identify potentially useful cash savings for anyone on a running workout plan this summer. .
