One of the best parts about running is that you don’t need much equipment to do it – just lace up your sneakers and go.
But, just because it’s a simple activity doesn’t mean it’s always enjoyable or easy. A lot of us hate running. I did for a long time. That was, until I realized there were a few things I could add to my runs to make them more enjoyable. You can’t buy a positive attitude, but being armed with some great accessories to make you feel safer, comfier, and faster just might be the motivation you need.
For me, it starts with a great pair of headphones that let me block out the noises around me and blast the playlists I actually want to hear. Since everyone’s different, I reached out to my cohort of coworkers to see what their favorite running accessories are.
From compression tights that keep your muscles feeling good through long distances to watches that make your runs feel a little less like a chore, these are the 17 running accessories we count on to make our runs more enjoyable.
