Warm Weather Running Gear Guide
As the weather starts to warm up it’s important to have the right gear heading into summer + warm weather running! The most important gear you need for running that you won’t find on any of our gear guides is shoes! Shoes are definitely not a one size/style/type fits all purchase — so we recommend you go to your local running specialty store + talk to someone who can properly fit you + provide the right running shoe for your budget ; )
Below are our 11 favorite pieces of warm weather gear to keep you cool all CHAARG Run Club season long!
#1] Nathan Handheld Water Bottle — Any run longer than an hour + you should be carrying water [or have easy access to it!]. This one also has a touch case for your phone!
#2] Nuun Hydration Tablets — These are my go to supplement for making sure I stay hydrated throughout the summer.
#3] Balega Hidden Dry Socks — These socks are super thin + lightweight but still sweat wicking. So they’ll keep your feet cool, dry, + blister free!
#4] Under Armour Run Cap — I don’t typically run in caps… but I know with my new dedication to skincare that I’m going to have to invest in a good running hat. I love this ones cute color + how simple it is… although a bolt running hat might be worth waiting for ; )
#5] SpiBelt Running Belt — I love how light weight + tiny this is. It stretches to fit your phone, keys, credit card, + ID. I don’t recommend running with your phone in it though because then it tends to move around alot! [Put your phone in the nike pocket bra].
#6] Nike Women’s 10K Short — I live in Nike running shorts, but another amazing brand that I’ve been dying to try is Janji. ++ If you’re going to splurge, lululemon hotty hot shorts are my other favorites.
#7] Nike Pocket Bra — This is my favorite bra to run in of all time! Super supportive + holds your ID, keys, gels, + phone — easily! Great for small boobs + big boobs alike : )
#8] Neutrogena Ultra Dry Touch SPF 70 — Don’t leave on your run without having put on your sun protection : )
#9] Garmin Forerunner 235 Running Watch — This is my favorite running watch I’ve ever used! It’s an older model – so a little cheaper than the newer ones, but I think it still has all of the needs for getting you through your workouts! If you’re looking for a newer model that is even simpler – check out the Garmin Forerunner 45S.
#10] Trigger Point Foam Roller — It hurts so good.
#11] Hyperice HyperSphere — Another recovery tool that is great for targeting smaller muscles + knots.
