The September 2018 "Get Outside!" issue of Women's Running is on newsstands now.

Women's Running — September 2018
It’s time to get outside! The September “Get Outside!” issue of Women’s Running is dedicated to helping you take advantage of the great outdoors by exploring new trails (without getting lost), building confidence in your trail running and feeling more comfortable running outside solo. On the cover is ultrarunner Jenny Jurek, who came out with a book this year (with her husband, ultrarunning legend Scott Jurek), is mama of two and shares honestly about how her time outside helped her through a season of infertility, loss and disappointment. Pick up a copy to also read about the 21 best shoes for fall, time-saving tips and recipes (it is back-to-school season after all!) and hydration packs to fit every body type. Also in this issue, you’ll find our monthly dose of nutrition, gear, training, injury prevention, racing and wellness advice to help you get the most of out of your running lifestyle. We’ll see you out there!

Since the great outdoors are at the front of our minds for the “Get Outside!” issue, we’re highlighting our favorite brands that are making a difference in the environment by using new technologies and new materials to either reuse recycled products, reduce their carbon footprint or keep more waste from entering the environment. Also in the Warm Up section, you’ll find new books for runners, a bucket-list race relived through Swedish mountain runner (and new author) Emelie Forsberg, expert-recommended time savers to streamline your never-ending to-do list, hydration vests for every body type, popular hikes on the Appalachian Trail, sneaker basics and the story behind Parkrun’s community-led, weekly 5K runs.

We’d like to think cookies can be good (er…better) for you when packed with protein and used as a post-run recovery treat. Try one of these three baked treats, which WR editors extensively tested (you’re welcome). Also in the Eat to Run section, you’ll find five “Weeknight Winners” recipes that each have six or fewer main ingredients; a sports nutritionist’s take on vitamin D deficiency; and a recipe for Apple Carrot Superhero Muffins from Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky’s new cookbook.
