Learn to Run a 5K Clinic – Running Gear

The second clinic of the 2016 Run@Work Day season covered the essentials and accessories of running–THE GEAR.

The presenters discussed and demonstrated several fitness/running items, such as clothes (cold and warm weather), electronics, hydration aids, rollers (muscle massagers), headgear and other useful gadgets.

They emphasized wearing good shoes depending on foot type and that a specialty running store will help you with fitting. Also among the topics were wicking clothing, cooler weather clothes, running socks, various hydration systems, the benefits of good sunglasses, night running lights and vests, and GPS units (e.g. Polar, Garmin) and their features.
