We have arrived at my favorite seasons of running clothes (it may have snowed in Utah yesterday but it is back to the 60s today ha)! Shorts and tank tops… It makes the whole process so much easier to get ready for a run each day and it means I am not doing as much laundry;). I thought I would share my favorites with you and would love to hear your favorites too!
*The Chaser 5” Short (again, the 5” length is just my favorite). I love the colors that you can get in these shorts and they are incredibly light. Once again they offer plenty of pocket storage (and a place for you to tie your key into the short which is such a good idea) and the thick waistband doesn’t cut into your sides at all. The brief liner stays put throughout the run (ever had a shorts liner that didn’t… that’s the worst ha) and I feel like the fit is very flattering.
*Brooks has absolutely crushed it this season with their shorts. I can officially rate the Method 5” Short Tight as my favorite running shorts EVER. They do not move at all, the pockets are large and can fit so much in them, the material is so soft and made of high quality materials. I love the thick waistband so much and I feel confident and fast in these. They feel like they are painted on your body. I feel like the 5” length is PERFECT and I love the fact that there is no chaffing when I wear these shorts (the tag on the back comes off very easily but if you keep that on it could rub you).
*The Senita Rio come after the above shorts and I have run many races and workouts in them. They don’t move, the pockets are great and they have SO many fun patterns. I have the 3.75” ones but I know people love the longer ones too.
*These shorts from Amazon feel exactly like the Lululemon ones to me but they are much cheaper. They come in a lot of great colors too!
*I’ve always been a fan of the Roga! I haven’t bought a new pair in years because they just seem to last forever!
*I have one tank from Athleta and I love it way too much, the material is amazing. I’m surprised I haven’t shopped there more often because I love it so much.
*Amazon tanks that I LOVE—> here, here and here. Great prices, prime delivery, they are long enough and they have so many fun color options. The fabrics make them feel like they should cost way more than they do.
*GOODR sunglasses for LIFE. I love them so much and the huge selection of colors makes them so fun for so cheap. They are comfortable and don’t move around at all during the run.
*These rubber bands! I will use these for every run for the rest of my life:). They keep my hair in place and don’t leave a crease afterwards. I am obsessed with them.
*Koala Clip is a must for summer running! It makes it so you forget that you even have your phone with you on the run and it keeps the sweat out. It comes with me for every run. You can use the code HRG10 to get 10% off!
*My absolute favorite running socks ever (and believe me, I’ve done a lot of trial and error testing over the years of running) are these swiftwick. THEY ARE THE BEST.
*Oh and don’t forget to stay hydrated on your runs this summer—> THIS is the handheld I take on many of my runs!
And a quick little chat about yesterday…
We woke up to SNOW. Utah weather is so unpredictable. One year when I did a marathon in June here (pre-blogging days) it was snowing at the starting line. You just never know what you are going to get. I’m really looking forward to running on the canal traiin Arizona and and sweating like crazy.
10 chatty miles with Emilee!
I got home and then went straight into getting ready to jump in the car! This was the first round of sandwiches I made for the car ha.
And Beck does best in the car when he is awake if I hold his hand so my arm still hurts from that;)
We stopped in St. George to feed Beck, go on a walk and play at the park.
And it took quite the pep talk to get back in the car.
When Andrew saw this car with their bikes he said it is his goal for our family to have a similar set-up someday ha.
We made it to Las Vegas to stay with Andrew’s sister and we’ll keep going to Arizona today.
My sis-in-law had the best meal ready for us to eat as soon as we arrived.
Tell me some of your favorite spring/summer running clothes favorites?!
