Socks (socks specially designed for running…allow for more breathability. Stay away from socks that are 100% cotton. Once cotton gets wet, it stays wet. So, when your feet sweat or you step in a puddle, the moisture won’t get wicked away. Wearing cotton socks in the winter will make your feet feel cold and clammy. And they’ll cause blisters in the summer. The best running socks are ones that are made from synthetic materials such as polyester, acrylic, and CoolMax because they’ll wick away moisture. For winter running, wool blends suchas SmartWool are also a good choice.
Fuel Belt:The Fuel belt is a great way to bring extra fuel with you on your long runs. You can fill the bottles with water, electrolytes (gatorade, powerade, etc.) and store your keys, cliffbar shot bloks, sport beans, etc in the pouch. Not all runners use the fuel belt. For instance Christina uses it during her long runs for marathon training whereas mary prefers not to. Try it out for yourself and see how you like it!
Handheld Waterbottle: some runners prefer to use a handheld waterbottle to store water or gatorade. These bottles also have a pouch for storage of car keys or other types of fuel.
Body Glide: Athletes such as runners, bikers, and walkers may experience chafing in certain areas on their body. Specifically lots of people experience chafing from their shorts rubbing against their inner thigh, on their inner arm from rubbing against their shirt, or near their sports bra. Chafing is not fun at all especially when you are on a long run. I have found that rubbing Body Glide on my legs and under the straps of my sports bra that chafing is significantly reduced. Highly recommended.
