Our editors share their top picks for race-day preparation and execution.
Halloween is right around the corner; so if you’re still looking for accessories to add to your perfect Halloween wardrobe (or are already stocking up on items for next year), each of these will have you ooo-ing in appreciation–kind of like a friendly ghost that just can’t wait for the holiday to arrive.
These socks are better suited for hiking, biking and other cross-training activities than they are for running, but the adorable hand-holding ghosts they feature are too adorable to pass up. They also include a punny phrase perfectly suited for Halloween hijinx on the foot: “Hey Boo, let’s get sheet-faced.”
In addition to featuring the outline of a witch’s head–complete with her hat, wart and a significantly pointed chin–this lightweight, moisture-wicking pullover comes in gray and blue and is loose enough to work as a layer when worn over other workout clothes. For those running in warmer climates, Gone for a Run has similar designs available in tees and tanks. Bonus: if you get discouraged mid-run, just glance down at the witch on the front of your shirt and she’ll quite literally tell you to “run.”
Though we don’t advise falling into a candy coma this Halloween, everyone deserves to give in to their sweet tooth a little. These dark chocolate minis are the perfect way to do so–and, since they’re made by Enjoy Life, they’re free of all traces of gluten, dairy, wheat and several more of today’s common allergens.
You know the joke friends make on camping trips when you worry aloud about bears: “I don’t have to run faster than the bear; I just need to run faster than you!” The same goes for zombies, as this keychain reminds us–they just can’t keep up with fast food.
We can’t finalize a Halloween-themed roundup without mention of our favorite fictional running character. Don his famous running outfit and you’ll hear trick-or-treaters everywhere cheering, “Run, Forrest! Run!”
