    Part 2: What Do I Buy Dad For Father's Day?

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III


    Time–Minus 3 days until Father's Day. I left last week's list untouched.....it’s still below, and still all together RIGHT HERE!


    Here are a few things I missed. A few more options as you shop for Dad, Husband, Granddad, Boyfriend, Uncle, Cousin, Brother, Friend, or YOURSELF! I bought a present yesterday and picked up 2 ciele caps for myself! I call that balance (I think).


    Ok, here's what I missed last Thursday:


    Philadelphia Runner Gear – I didn't actually miss this, but I was looking at the range of this collection this morning and WOW! NOTE: the RED Run Philly, Run Manayunk, and Run Delco colorway is new!



    Limited Edition Collection – an assortment of items that you might not find anywhere else in Philadelphia, or a special edition colorway, or items that once they are sold out, they are gone forever! I'm not asking for a gift haha, but if you were shopping for me, this is where you should start.



    U–S–ATrack & Field Olympic Trials start next week. Independence Day will be here before you know it. The Olympics start the day before my birthday. And let me backtrack for my fellow soccer fans and mention Copa America which starts one (1) week from day. Time to run festive!



    Global Run Culture & Storytelling Capsule – there's a REALLY cool event happening tonight if you haven't heard. Like the Wind and Diadora are hosting with us, and we've collated the best from both brands here.



    Plenty of options for Dad. And as promised, last week's list ICYMI:


    PURERUN MINIMALIST HYDRATION VEST WITH 1.5L RESERVOIR – It's fake summer leading into real summer. Meaning it's hot.....or HOT. Hydration is always essential, but especially now.



    CURREX INSOLES – let's take care of our feet, shall we?



    DIADORA ATOMO V7000–2 – one of the best–looking trainers on the market. Performance–wise, the perfect balance between lightweight design, responsiveness, and cushioned support. Know what I would do? Pick up a pair early and have Dad wear them to the Diadora x Like The Wind x Philadelphia Runner event this upcoming Thursday, June 13th!



    DIADORA EQUIPE NUCLEO – see Atomo above. The Nucleo, although a neutral runner, offers lightweight stability as well. It's in my current running rotation. Also available in WIDE.



    HOKA GAVIOTA 5 – one of my favorite stability runners. Also in my current running rotation. Wider fit than previous Gaviota models with an updated, streamlined look. This, too, is available in WIDE.



    MAURTEN SOLID 160 – chewable Maurten? Like YES! 2 different flavors too!



    MIZUNO WAVE INSPIRE 20 – stability AND propulsion! I wanna say it's like speeding while wearing your seatbelt, but I am not advocating breaking the law. *insert – all views are my own and do not reflect the opinion of my employer*



    OOFOS EVERYTHING – see insoles above. Also, who doesn't want to be cozy pre and post run? We're talking stress release for feet, ankles, shins, and so on.



    PATAGONIA BAGGIES – I read an article a few years ago that said Baggies were the most versatile short ever. Quick drying, you're right out of the water and into the rest of your day without missing a step. I can go on and on about Baggies' culture, but I'll save that for a later discussion.



    SPIBELT PERFORMANCE SPIBELT – bounce–free. Weather–resistant. Pocket AND zipper. Sturdy buckle. Yeeaaahhhh.....
