Must-Have Spring Running Gear


Spring is finally here, which means finally getting off of the treadmill and enjoying the sunshine outside. The weather is just right – not too hot and not too cold. This is the time of the year when flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and, thanks to daylight savings, the days are longer and brighter.

It’s time to update your spring running wardrobe. Let’s face it, you won’t be packing on layers of merino wool during the warmer months – maybe just one.  Make sure you have the proper workout attire; shoes and gear should be ventilated and comfortable. Bluetooth headphones are a must-have; fitness trackers help us stay on track towards achieving our goals, and the right sunglasses have the ability to make your run much more enjoyable.
