PIN IT!With the summer heat here, its time to step up your running gear and not be left stranded in the heat unprepared. Here are some of the best summer running must haves to add to your gear for summer.
A Running Belt
Most of you may remember my review of the FlipBelt a couple of months ago and how much I loved it. Wel,l the Stealth Belt has the same handy features and the FlipBelt but at a lower price! The Stealth Belt allows you to carry your keys, id, cell phone, etc. all at the convenience of your hip. No matter if you’re sprinting or jogging, this baby stays in place and keeps your hands free.
A Great Summer Playlist
Nothing is more terrible than not having a great playlist lined up and not just one. Before you go out for a run, set up a couple different playlists so that you have one to match whatever running mood you’re in. Maybe you’re feeling beachy, or like soaking up the sun laying out, or maybe just feeling like a kid again and want to listen to some Disney jams. Whatever makes you happy, have it ready to go!
Runner Friendly Earbuds
To continue on with listening to your awesome playlists, make sure you invest in a good set of earbuds. I use to use Skullcandy earbuds because they have awesome sound quality at a great price but the cord always got in the way when running. I’ve since switched to a pair of Silicon Devices earbuds and I’m in love! Not only do they have awesome sound quality and allow you to answer phones call while running, but they also are a steal of a price on Amazon.
A Good Pair of Socks
Your feet are going to smell even more in the summer, there’s no way around it. The heat causes even more moisture but if you invest a set of good lightweight breathable socks for the summer, it will make all the difference. Your feet will be able to breathe which in turn will help keep your body temperature down. Need compression sleeves? Check out Lily Trotters.
A Hydration System
Nothing is more important than keeping yourself hydrated while running, especially long distances. Find a water bottle with a strap to hold on to your hand or a hydration pack. Many people prefer a pack as it can hold more water for longer. No matter which option you go with, keep the aqua flowing!
