Running can be a pretty simple sport when it comes to the equipment used. Generally all you need are a good pair of sneakers to get on your way, although some quality apparel and socks are nice to have too - not to mention a properly fitting sports bra for the ladies.
Are you half or full marathon training? How are those legs treating you these days? Sore, tight legs are a common byproduct of training for races of any distance. We hear it at Philadelphia Runner all of the time, “I’m always so sore after my long runs, is there anything I can do?” Why yes my dear running friend, there is. Compression.
ey girls, has running ever gotten a bit… out of hand? Come on you know what I’m talking about, it’s okay, we should be comfortable talking about the uncomfortable! No matter what type of movements we are doing, from yoga to boot camp classes, sometimes we just gotta strap down the girls. Don’t lie, the extremes have happened, yes I’m talking about tape and double bra-ing it, YIKES! The result of these crazy stunts are because 80 percent of women are in the wrong size bra. I know 80 percent is a crazy high number but listen, sizes can change due to age, pregnancy, or weight change.
You may be thinking to yourself, what's a buff and why should I own one (or more!)?
The term "buff" comes from the Spanish work for scarf: bufanda. Buffs are fabric tubes that are probably one of the most versatile pieces of gear out there. They have many different uses, but are generally intended to keep your neck, face and head warm, dry and protected from the sun. Buffs are like are a secret weapon - one of those things you just have to have. You may not need it on every run but it's a great accessory to have and one that you will use more often than you think.
