Ready to tackle your first half marathon? Not only should you focus on training for this challenge but also what you should be wearing to benefit you.
Here’s what we suggest you wear when running 13.1 miles in this warm weather.
Sports bra: This item is worth a little splurge to find the right size for your bust. Try finding one with adjustable clasps in the back—like you’d find in a regular bra—because you can get the perfect fit and they are much easier to take off when sweaty.
Seamless top: Underarm irritation is a real thing—and something you don’t want to deal with. Find tops made specifically for running that are seamless below the armpits.
Capris or Shorts: These items are your best bet to cut down on any unnecessary rubbing. No chaffing for you!
Socks: Lightweight ankle-length wicking socks are ideal for this type of event. Make sure to find ones that fit snugly and are seamless to prevent hot spots or blisters.
Sneakers: A super important addition to your 13.1 mile run, sticking with a brand that has proven it’s worth to you is best. Choose ones that offers the stability and support you need for your foot type and your running style.
