Sometimes, we have to justify those gear purchases to ourselves because while running is free, our gear most definitely is not.
Coach Jenny Hadfield shares her favorite running gear for this month.
Brooks PR Mesh Skort II
Comfy from the first mile, this skort is the bomb. Made from a lightweight mesh material, it’s the perfect length. The shorts are tight enough that they never creep up—but the grip on the bottom won’t make your legs look like sausages. It also has a flattering wide waistband and a hidden pocket for extra cash.
Brooks Pure Project Long-Sleeve Top
This super-soft, baseball shirt is my new go-to. It looks just as cool on the trails paired with a running skirt as it does out on the town with jeans. The side-synch drawcords create a flattering ruched look, and the thumbs holes are pure fun.
Scrubba Wash Bag
At a mere six ounces, the Scrubba is the smallest washing machine I’ve ever seen. Perfect for camping—or an overnight trail running adventure—this little device is twice as effective as hand washing. Simply fill with clothes, water and detergent. Then roll, rub, rinse and dry!
