We asked gurus to share some tips to better prepare you to get into stride at the drop of a hat.
Boston-based New England Guru John Deangelis recommends a good half-zip for easy layering. “They have that upscale look, quality, and feel, making them perfect to wear around town. When you get that urge to run, no need to worry — they're lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying.”
Tights can be pants.
Everyday comfort and running comfort can live in the same world. A stylish pair of running tights allows you to go from running errands to running your route in no time.
Good pockets are gold.
If your schedule is such that you don’t have time to change, it’s helpful to wear gear with adequate pockets that can store keys, phones, and other essentials. Look for roomy pockets with a zipper for extra security.
Water is your best accessory.
Keep a water bottle with you so you can stay hydrated and get after your run whenever it suits you. You may not need to carry a purse or backpack these days, but a water bottle is always a necessary accessory.
