Outfit of the Week #24: Just Enjoy The Ride
What kind of runner are you? Do you eagerly look forward to excelling and pushing your limits with each training, or do you run to unwind, taking your time with no objective in mind? Or do you just plough through your run to hit your workout quota?
Whichever runner profile you lean towards, there are shared experiences: Having your senses come awake as blood pumps through your veins. Falling into a rhythmic pattern as your body moves forward with each stride. Feeling the breeze on your hot skin and simply enjoying the ride.
You'll want something that provides a great range of motion while cradling your feet and relieving forefoot pressure. Try the Saucony Ride 8 on for size. It comes with improved support and cushioning technology, while maintaining lightweight and breathable. These comfortable neutral shoes come in various striking colour designs that are practical as they are aesthetically pleasing – silver reflectors let you enjoy your evening run safely.
Fuel your mental and emotional energy with songs that move and motivate. Listen to them using these sweat- and weather-proof Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds, which you can integrate with a running app in the ever stylish and uber personalised Apple Watch Sport. Available in 12 models and with various interchangeable strap styles, this user-friendly smartwatch does so much more than tell time. Besides monitoring and improving your workout performance, you can even take selfies with it while out on your run!
For a fuss-free outfit, opt for a soft, short sleeve tee and a basic, stretchy capri. We're always looking for breathable, quick-drying fabrics, like in this flattering capri and sleek, racer-back sports bra. You can switch up the colours, or keep it plain and simple like we did here, and let the gorgeous hues on the shoes shine.
Take this water bottle along with you – for hydration and for the inspirational quotes printed on its quirky design – and enjoy the ride!
