After running shoes, the next most important gear item is a pair of well-fitting socks. We ran in dozens to bring you our top picks.
NCAA runner turned high school coach Hillary Kigar has an answer for all things training!
The other day, I overheard one of the girls I coach mention that she was wearing an old sports bra from eighth grade—and she’s a senior in high school! Just as it is important to replace your running shoes regularly, be sure to rotate your sports bra every six months (if you wear it often)—go 12 months at the most. Take care of the garment by washing with cold water. Instead of throwing it in the dryer, hang dry to help keep the fabric snug and effective.
