Why Do Removable Sports Bra Pads Exist?

A personal rant turned into an education. Here’s why so many running bras have those removable pads that you lose in the laundry, plus 10 of our favorite bras that don't have them.

Meet Our 2022 Power Women of the Year

From athletes to advocates, business leaders to community voices, these 15 women are reshaping the running industry for the better—and we can’t wait to watch the impact they make in the new year.

In 2020, we started a new tradition: Kicking off the new year by announcing our Women’s Running Power Women of the Year. The women featured in that group were the game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers within our community; they were the ones to watch, to cheer for, and to be inspired by in this upcoming year.

For the third year in a row, we’re thrilled to announce a new group of honorees. In this year’s list, you’ll find some familiar faces along with a number of new additions. Last year, we broadened our scope beyond just athletes, because it’s not only the pros who are changing the game, it’s women within every corner of our community.

There are top athletes, of course, as well as powerful advocates who are speaking out about everything from domestic violence to racial inequality. We included leaders and innovators, as well as some of the most impactful voices of the women’s running world. Like the rest of us, the women in these pages identify as more than runners, but it’s through running that they’ve inspired us.

These 15 power women are reshaping the running industry for the better—and we can’t wait to watch the impact they make in the upcoming year.
