Fall is officially here with winter quickly on its way! For those who have been avoiding the summer heat indoors can now take those treadmill runs outside and enjoy the cooler, crisp air. Some of us may still experience what's left of the summer heat, but the days are getting darker and cooler and very soon COLDER. Let us help prepare you with all the winter running necessities.
We cannot stress enough how important it is to be visible during your early evening runs. The days are getting shorter and visibility decreases dramatically after the sun has set. Even if there is a bit of light left in the sky, it's important to wear points of light or reflectivity all over. For as little as $10, you can grab a little Nathan Strobe light to clip on to just about anything. Check out our other reflective and visibility gear in store: Nathan Bandolier Vest (360o Reflectivity, 1200ft Visibility, lightweight, vented mesh with zippered small pocket, and it's Ragnar Approved - That's awesome), Amphipod Micro-Light Flashing Reflective LED Band (Bright, flashing LED's, fits arm & ankle, end to end Reflectivity, stretch Fit Design), Both Nathan Zephyr Fire 100 and 300 Runner's Flashlight (4 modes, weather resistant, 104 meter beam distance, emergency siren, up to 12+ hours burn time, USB chargeable), Nathan Orion Strobe (4 modes, 2400ft LED Visibility, 20m Beam distance, adjustable belt, weather resistant, up to 6+ hours burn time), Amphipod Xinglet Pocket (Front Zippered Pocket, 360o Reflectivity, adjustable, front access Swift clip quick release), and the Nathan Lightbender (Weather Resistant, 2400 ft. LED Visibility, 2 modes, 100+ hours of illumination) We have many more options, so stop in and check out our inventory.
Winter days and nights are filled with cold and sometimes frigid air and it's nice to have clothing options that don't bulk you up or weigh you down. Light layers will be your BEST friend during these next couple of months. A warm, breathable base layer will keep you warm & dry as you up your mileage or just go for your daily run. Pair your base layer with a light, weatherproof jacket layer to keep you dry and protected from the elements. Our racks are fully loaded with fall clothes from your favorite brands. Some of our favorites are the Saucony Unisex EXO Jacket (Wind & Waterproof shell, reflective trim for added visibility, drop tail hem & scuba-shaped hood keep you dry, warm & covered), Sugoi Ladies Ignite Long Sleeve (drop tail hem for added coverage, thumb holes provide added warmth, reflective stitching adds visibility and raglan sleeve construction adds superior comfort), Saucony Ladies Swift Long Sleeve ( 4-way stretch comfort, moisture wicking, reversible for double style, thumbholes keep your sleeves in place), Brooks Men's LSD Lite Jacket (Windproof, water resistant, ultralight, packable, air vent allows circulation, stowable 3-panel hood, reflective detail keeps you visible), and the Under Armour Run fitted long sleeve (Lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric, reflective detail.) We get new shipments in every day, so come see what's new for fall weather running.
Ladies, if your sports bra is celebrating a birthday, may we suggest that it's time to say goodbye to the old and hello to new support. Same goes for underwear. The combination of heat, sweat, and friction in your nether regions is not only uncomfortable, it can be unhealthy. Make sure you're wearing non-cotton, breathable undies with antimicrobial properties.
We feature some of the best brands in Sports Bras including Moving Comfort, Nike and Enell. We have bra fitters on hand to get you into the correct size. Can you believe that over 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra and wrong fit for their needs. No more doubling up. We guarantee to find the right size bra for you! Come on in and get FIT correctly this Fall!
It's imperative to be properly fueled before, during and after your run. Below are just a few of our favorites with some flavors for the season. Who says you can't eat cookies and be healthy? Skratch cookie mix is easy to use as well as being a great alternative to prepackaged energy bars. If you need more permission to eat a cookie, check out their blog. Skratch drink mixes are great to refuel during a workout and are flavored with only real fruit and contain no artificial colors or preservatives. Try the Matcha Green Tea w/Lemons, Oranges, Pineapples, Raspberries and Lemon + Lime. Honey Stinger Organic Waffles are another sweet treat not to be missed. And if you're looking for seasonal flavors of gel packets, check out Maple Bacon & Salted Caramel from GU and Cafe Mocha and Apples & Cinnamon from Huma Gel.
