Nike React Miler 2 Running Shoe
When you are hitting the pavement hard make sure you are laced up with the React Miler 2s. With plenty of soft cushioning to help keep you comfortable on long runs and a redesigned upper that creates a more streamlined and lightweight profile. This is a neutral cushioned shoe intended for runners who have a high stable arch. If that is you make sure to check out The React Miler 2.
Alo Yoga 5” Adapt Running Shorts
A good pair of running shorts are shorts that you hardly notice are there, and these Adapt shorts from Alo Yoga are just right in that regard. With the soft and light-as-air material you’ll barely feel these shorts when you slip them on. With 2-way stretch and 5” inseam you won’t have anything holding you back while making those long strides. Whether you are using these on a long run or hanging around the house these will become your go-to shorts and just might end up with a couple of different colors.
Altra Provision 6
We love Altra’s shoes. With their signature FootShape, the shoes are unrivaled in comfort giving your toes plenty of space to sit naturally. With plenty of responsive cushioning on the Provision 6, you can really stack up the miles. The Guiderail on the Provision 6 helps encourage your foot to have a natural placement in the shoes supporting your foot only when it is needed. If you’re planning on doing a lot of training this year, this shoe is for you.
Legends Relay Short
4-way stretch and no stitching mean these shorts are ready for any sort of activity you can throw at them. With customization options like adding a brief liner or not and multiple inseam lengths and a wide array of fun colors and patterns. Laser perforation keeps the air flowing and keeps you cool and a style at home on the run or lounging around the house.
Hydro Flask 12 oz Insulated Food Jar
Experts say chowing down on protein-rich foods after a workout is a smart play, which is why so many gym-goers religiously pound protein smoothies. But you know what tastes better than a protein smoothie? Real, home-cooked food. Check out Hydro Flask’s line of insulated food jars, which are perfect for bringing along a warm, healthy meal to snack on after a workout. We love to fill this jar up with quinoa and teriyaki-glazed salmon, bring along a sliced avocado in a smaller 8 oz jar (to keep it cool), top the salmon with the avocado, and voila! The perfect post-workout meal, no protein powder needed.
LARQ Bottle Filtered
If you are like many Americans and wary of what might be in your tap water the Filtered Bottle from LARQ has you covered. With a built-in filter, you can fill up anywhere after a long run and not worry too much about where that water comes from. The straw-based filter has good flow so you don’t even notice you are drinking from a filter. LARQ’s beautifully designed bottles and vacuum insulated construction your water looks cool and will actually stay cool for hours.
