The weather is warming and spring is soon upon us. Are you getting outside more to exercise? I’ve set a goal for myself which involves more running, so this article on BuzzFeed caught my eye. https://www.buzzfeed.com/genevievescarano/running-gear-runners-love
It lists over 30 running products that people love. Some of these I’d like to try. Here are a few things I never leave home without:
1.Newton Running Shoes- https://www.newtonrunning.com/pages/why-newton They are a Colorado-based brand, I stumbled across their booth at the Bolder Boulder years ago, demoed a pair, and have been hooked ever since. They are designed to support gait and be more ergonomically correct. I have since tried other brands but always go back to Newtons.
2. The Rock my Run app for iPhone and headphones, of course. I reviewed this app a while back, here’s the link: https://fitnessskinny.com/rock-my-run/ It matches musical beats per minute to your running pace. It motivates you to move quicker and helps improve your time.
3. If it’s sunny a ball cap and/or my running glasses -they are tight-fitting and form to my face. The brand I’m using now is called Rudy Project. Find here: https://www.rudyprojectna.com
4. Also, on hotter days I wear a merino wool tank top and running shorts, both from Icebreaker. They are designed to keep you cool on even the hottest days and they absolutely work! https://www.icebreaker.com/en-us/home
5. I always wear sunscreen on my face and the brand I prefer is iS Clinical. I wear their Eclipse SPF 50+ clear face sunscreen. It’s super lightweight, goes on smooth, not oily and the active ingredients are Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. https://isclinical.com/
The right equipment can make all the difference. Now get out there and enjoy the warmer weather!.
