Dress Right for Summer Runs
You need the right running gear when the mercury rises.
The first thing you should think about is what fabric you wear. Cotton T-shirts don't work well in balmy summer temps because they soak up sweat and dry slowly. Instead, reach for synthetic fabrics, like polyester and nylon, that wick moisture from your skin and dry quickly.
Then think about the cut. Lightweight tanks and breezy shorts will increase airflow to keep you cooler than long-sleeve T-shirts and leggings.
Finally, get the right running socks. Socks designed specifically for running use those technical fibers and are cut to prevent bagginess, so your dogs stay dry and blister-free.
Once you have the essentials, you can accessorize. Garmin running watches keep track of your pace and miles so you don't have to carry your phone, and goodr running sunglasses cut glare and don't slip down your face—no matter how much you sweat.
