Our squad of testers put the latest running and fitness gear to the sweat test to determine the winners of our 2017 Tech Awards.
Christine Bibbo Herr was always active, but she started running 15 years ago when her now husband bought her a pair of running shoes and invited her for a jog. When he came to pick Bibbo Herr up, the Manhattanite stepped out of her apartment wearing her new sneakers, a cotton hoodie and a pair of wide-leg jeans. She remembers, “He looked at me and said, ‘What are you wearing? Get those jeans off.’”
The self-proclaimed urban-fitness girl has come a long way since her Levi-wearing days. Over the course of the last decade and a half, Bibbo Herr cultivated a career as a fashion editor for numerous publications and completed the New York City Marathon—with an impressive 3:47! She now serves as a fashion, fitness and beauty blogger for her own site, NYC Pretty, and is currently training for a half marathon this spring.
Running-wear philosophy: Comfort first—with lots of color.
