One of the worst things you can do on race day is try something new. Breakfast, energy gels, clothes—don’t do it.
The other worst thing you can do is wear cotton.
Cotton soaks up sweat and dries slowly, leaving you wet and chafing. Instead of throwing on any old tee in your drawer, reach for something like the men’s On Comfort-T or the women’s ASICS Dorai Short Sleeve. The shirts are made from technical fibers that wick sweat and dry quickly, so you stay comfortable.
A solid sports bra is also an essential piece of gear for women. Enter the Brooks Fastforward Crossback sports bra. With an adjustable back closure and straps, the Fastforward marries a customizable fit with top-notch comfort so you feel supported from mile one to mile 13.
