We tamed those unruly flyaways and managed second-day hair with dozens of headbands to find the five best for runners.
Looking for a unique gift for the runner girl in your life? Check out a few of my latest favorite things!
Betty Designs Tri Short and Top
She had me at snakeskin and skulls. Designed by triathlete and mom Kristin Mayer, this outfit is perfect for cross-training days on the bike. From the women’s padding to the gel gripper leg closure—the apparel fits, flatters and makes you feel a little funky. $100 and $120 respectively, bettydesigns.com
Zents Attar Roll-On Perfume
These convenient roll-on oil perfumes are the perfect post-workout pick-me-up. Made with the purest of ingredients from around the world and free of parabens, sulfates and dyes, the scents are at once clean and luxurious. Plus, they’re airline compliant, perfect to throw in your carry-on. $40, zents.com
The Aqua Zinger Water Bottle
I drink water constantly when I’m training, but this bottle makes it fun. The bottom-mounted grinder allows you to infuse your water with fruit and herbs. It’s amazing how a few strawberries can enhance the flavor of an entire bottle! $26, zinganything.com
