7 Essentials for Summer Running

Get your summer running gear to keep you safe running outside in the heat.

By Liz Kennedy, Reader's Digest

1. Running skirt 

Where fashion meets exercise. Women are sporting these skirts (with shorts attached underneath) more and more as an alternative to traditional running gear — they will keep you cool and trendy in the summer heat. 

2. CamelBak 

Stay hydrated on your long runs with a CamelBak. Choose from three different types of styles: backpack, fanny pack, or hand held and fill with water or your favorite sports drink. 
If you are running more than 45 minutes, you should consider taking in some calories to keep yourself properly fueled. These chews are organic, tasty, and easy to take in while running.

Keep sweat at bay with these headbands that wick away sweat from your forehead. Made for men and women these headbands come in different colors and patterns and will stay in place no matter how many miles you are pounding out. 
Sweat and chafing go hand-in-hand when running in the summer. Prepare for your long runs by applying body glide with sunscreen in any area you think you may experience chafing. 

6. SPIbelt 

Need a way to carry your running essentials? SPIbelts expand and contract depending on how much you put in them. Whether it’s keys, money, cell phone, or Organic Honey Stingers, this belt won’t budge as your run. 

7. RoadID

Stay safe while you’re on the road in the heat by wearing a RoadID. Inscribed with your name, an emergency phone number, and any medical conditions, this bracelet could save your life.
