Lace up and hit the pavement, the trails or the track. No matter the surface, the right shoes make all the difference, so make sure you find a pair that fits your needs with the right support, the right cushioning and the right looks. Shorts that allow for a good range of movement make running a lot easier, and a lot more fun. Compression sleeves provide relief and prevent aching muscles for longer distance runs. A light and airy top is better for the spring and summer while a sweatshirt, plus matching tights or pants might be a better bet as it gets cooler. Staying hydrated is important, so a lightweight water bottle is a must.
