What Do I Need To Run?

The basics include running shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes. Well-fitting running socks and underwear are also important. Depending on the weather, you might want sunglasses, a jacket, a hat, gloves, or spikes. Those wishing to track their speed or distance might run with a GPS-equipped device, odometer, or heart-rate monitor.

SHOES : Things To Consider When Purchasing Running Shoes

Trends In Athletic Shoe Development

Improvements are being made in the area of athletic shoe research and development to prevent the occurrence of sports-specific accidents and injuries. In the past, athletic shoe design was focused around support and cushioning; however, studies have shown that these components are not solely entirely effective in preventing injury. Modern shoe construction is focused on producing a shoe based on the specific needs of individuals based on a variety of factors.

Running Clothes

Fit and comfort, not appearance, are the most essential factors to consider when choosing running clothes. The basics are a running shirt, shorts, and socks, plus a sports bra for women. For colder weather, you may want to wear layers that include a running jacket, tights, gloves, and a hat. Weather-resistant, reflective clothing made from materials like Gore-Tex or Sympatex are also good to have on windy or rainy days.
Basic cotton t-shirts have been replaced by technical running shirts. Cotton absorbs sweat, eventually becoming wet, heavy, and unhygienic. Tech shirts are made from special, lightweight materials that wick sweat from the body, keeping the body cooler and dryer even on hot, humid days.
Running shorts and tights are made from lightweight, flexible polyester or spandex and are available in lengths ranging from short to mid-calf and ankle length. Tights are sometimes preferable to shorts because they help prevent chafing that might result from shorts rubbing against the inner thighs in hot weather. Ankle length tights often have a zipper near the foot to make them easier to get on and off. Many running bottoms have a small pocket in the back to carry keys, money, and other small necessities.
