5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week: July 28, 2017

Team WR shares 5 things they loved during the week of July 28, 2017.

KIND Fruit Bites, $5 For Box Of 5 Pouches

“These tasty little fruit snacks are a hit with my 3-year-old daughter—and with me! Made with one full serving of fruit (literally just fruit, such as five cherries, half an apple and no juices or concentrates), these chewy dried fruit bites are a not-too-sweet portable treat that’s perfect for throwing in the diaper bag to entertain the kids when we’re out or leaving in the car for a little pre-run fuel for me.” –Bethany Mavis, managing editor

AllTrails App, Free

“On the road? This app is great to find the most popular trails around your final destination and see what other runners think of them.” –Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Perfect Bar Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter With Sea Salt, $24 For Box Of 8

“If you loved eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as a kid (admit it–you’ve had one way more recently than that), then you’ll love this grown-up gluten free taste-a-like. Biting into Perfect Bar’s new Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter with Sea Salt is just like tasting a refrigerated Reese’s cup. Chocolatey, peanut buttery, healthy…so excellent.” –Meghan Roos, associate web editor

Wattie Ink Women’s Patriot Tights, $100

“Wattie Ink specializes in triathlon gear, but they make some amazing gear for runners, too! I love these Patriot Tights. Not only is the print perfect—and edgy—but the fit is perfect, too. They go up high enough to keep me held in without feeling restricted. I love how high-quality they are—made in California—and so comfortable. They have so many other prints that help you stand out from the boring solids and neons that have taken over the market.” –Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor

Bombas Women’s Running Eight-Pack Socks, $96 For 8 Pairs

“Soft, comfortable and reliable. I love the Bombas running socks because they provide the support my feet need when running (AKA blister prevention!) and are extremely comfortable. I love the no-show style, which doesn’t slip, and the color options. Another great feature: when you purchase a pair of socks, Bombas donates a pair to the homeless.” –Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
