The fall cross-country season is coming up and we can’t wait! We’ve put together a list of some items we just can’t live without for the upcoming season:
A GOOD WATER BOTTLE
We love the Nathan Chroma Steel Ombre bottle ($20). Double wall insulation means your water stays extra cold and the bottle doesn’t sweat. Plus – this bottle fits nicely in a car cupholder!
It’s okay to admit it. Sometimes things get away from you and your bag (and training shoes in particular) really STINK! 2Toms Stink Free Spray ($10) doesn’t mask odor with fragrance – it removes odor caused by bacteria. Embrace this little bottle. It is your friend.
Did you know that compression socks can help reduce muscle vibration and help your muscles perform better? CEP Dynamic+ Short Socks ($22.50) provide just enough compression to help you feel your best during workouts and races.
A running watch like the Garmin Forerunner 35 ($169) can help you track your progress and keep track of workouts. CLICK HERE to learn more about the FR35.
MASSAGE STICK OR BALL
Stay loose and avoid injury with a packable massage tool like the TriggerPoint MBX Massage Ball ($20) – which is designed to get in deep and replicate the feeling of a massage therapist’s elbow.
A GOOD SPORTS BRA
For our runner girls – a good sports bra is absolutely essential for workouts and racing. We love the Brooks Just Right Racer ($48) for its seamless simplicity.
AND GREAT ‘SHORTS’
For the runner guys out there – the SAXX Kinetic Boxer ($37) has been described as “life changing” by our staff members, and the brand is a favorite of pro athletes like Kevin Love and Jake Arrieta.
