1. My Camelbak Hydration vest. So I’ve only been out once with it, however, I already love it. I’m planning on taking it with me to Poland in the hopes I can still get a long run or 2 in while we’re over there.
2. My hat. I never run without my running hat in the summer. I have to have the bill to block the sun. I have a nice hat I bought at the Quad Cities Marathon expo that is vented with mesh, so it doesn’t get too hot.
3. Really good sunglasses. I don’t have a pair of these yet, but I hope to soon. A really good pair that block UV rays would be optimal. Not to mention ones that make you look cool!
5. Shady running routes. Ok, so this really isn’t Gear, but it helps!! I like to plan my routes around where the sun will be as well as what places will allow for the most shade. It will be 10 degrees or more cooler in the shade than the sun.
What is your favorite Gear for summer running?
