6 Best Fitness Pieces To Get You Ready For Outdoor Runs

athleta running clothes  Happy Monday! I spend last week in Columbus with two days in the negatives and a couple days after that in 5 inches of snow. Needless to say it was a full on winter week where we stayed bundled up and had a little sledding fun. We have a much deserved warm couple days happening right now and I have never been so ready to take an outdoor run. Spring is at the end of the tunnel which means outdoor runs will be back in full swing. I’ve rounded up a few things to get you ready for your outdoor runs.

Time to let your legs breath. I have never been comfortable running in shorts because they tend to ride up and cause my thighs to chaf. Cropped leggings are the perfect pant for your outdoor runs.

2 // Sports Bra
Any female knows the importance of a supportive sports bra. I have sports bras for yoga and barre workouts and different bras for running and HIIT workouts. For running you need bras to be extra supportive to keep the girls in place. Some things to keep in mind while bra shopping is support, breathability, comfort, fit and style.

3 // Knit Running Shoes
If you plan on running long distances I recommend getting fitted for the best shoe for your foot. Prior to training for my first half marathon I was fitted in these shoes which I love, I wear them anytime I plan on running more than 3 miles.

4 // Layering Top
Layers are a great way to regulate your body temperature. Post run sweat plus cloud coverage and a light breeze can bring on the chills. Keep a light weight jacket or top around your waist for when you need to throw on a layer.

5 // Sweat-Proof Sunscreen
Not any sunscreen will work during outdoor exercise. Make sure you get a sweat-proof option to keep your skin protected from start to finish. Don’t forget to add a little SPF on your lips!

6 // Running Hat
When the sun is blaring down the only thing to make it easier on your run is adding a hat or visor. This will keep you from squinting and will help protect your face from the sun. If only we could find some woods to run in on sunny days.

I’m so happy to be sharing my first ever One Piece, Three Ways blog post. I love wearing the same thing over and over and finding new ways to style it. These green pants were purchased in the fall and you can take them from the park to the office. The color of these pants are neutral and can be styled in endless ways. Check out my three options below!

When I am asked for style tips people often ask how to wear a blazer in a causal setting. You can easily wear a blazer with jeans or sneakers to dress the look down. Where a blazer and sneaker with these green pants would be a perfect business casual outfit. Who’s ready for their next causal Friday outfit??

Pairing sneakers with a denim jacket is completely casual. This is how I would style these pants for the weekend, running errands or any activity with my boys.

The Breakdown:
These pants can be worn so many different ways which is why they were perfec to be featured in my first One Piece, Three Styles post. The pants are chino which seem casual to me so my first idea was to wear sneakers. Cold weather is upon us so I knew I needed a jacket This denim and shearling give all the warm feels without over heating, you know what I mean?!
