Sneakers
Superlight Saucony ProGrid Triumph 7 neutral sneakers have a cushy midsole to absorb shock and help propel your foot forward with each step. ($130, saucony.com)

Watch
Tap the screen on the Timex Sleek 150-Lap watch to mark splits. If you go too slow or fast, the target time pacer will sound off to keep you on track. ($90, timex.com)

Coach's Tip: Pre-race, sprinkle baby powder in your socks and running and cycling shoes. It's a quick way to absorb sweat and prevent blisters.
