The Women's Running team picks eight running and recovery items they recommend for runners as the summer season kicks off.
Nothing says summer like a new, bright running outfit. Check out our Pinterest friendly fashion board for a look that’s sure to turn a few heads:
Moving Comfort Form Tee ($46) – This seamless tee features a flattering cut and inset pattern. Made to fight off odor, the anti-microbial fabric is lightweight and wicking. Though it is a little pricey, this shirt doesn’t ride up, which easily made it one of our favorites.
Moving Comfort Momentum Short ($44) – We love the flattering wide waistband on this short. Made to eliminate the dreaded “muffin top,” the smooth knit fabric hugs your curves without restricting them. Though the four inch inseam might still be shorter than some may like, we found the length to be just right.
Adidas Supernova Track Jacket ($65) – This jacket supplies a lightweight layer that moves sweat and heat away from your skin with CLIMACOOL® technology. This is the perfect addition for those who need to curb the early morning or late evening chill. We found the fit to be a little snug through the back and shoulders, so don’t size down on this jacket!
Asics HERA® 2 Pack Head Band ($15) – Don’t fight with fly-a-way hair anymore! This non-slip headband adds a touch of color to your head while keeping those stray hairs in check.
Hydrapak Avila ($50) – This hydration pack is lightweight, easy to fill, and allows you to carry your water right on your back. Easily store small items in the zippered pocket for safe keeping. While some may not like the sound and feel of water bouncing on your back, we hardly noticed the pack once we got used to the sensation.
Brook Pure Cadence ($120) – This light-as-a-feather (only 8.3 ounces!) shoe provides responsive stability support for those who tend to overpronate. Experience the feel of a natural foot strike with this lightweight, breathable shoe. We found the sizes to run about a half size small, so make sure to order accordingly.
Zoya Nail Polish in Arizona ($8) – Zoya was the first cosmetics company to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) from their polish (and they’re vegan friendly to boot!). Aside from the bright colors, we loved the durability of this polish. Finding Zoya polish can be a little tricky (though we have started to see it in some Ulta stores), so we recommend ordering it from their website. Also, check out their Pinterest contest (until 6/5)!
