5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

Here it is—our weekly installment of the running goodies the team can't stop ranting and raving about here at Women's Running.

Picky Bars Chai And Catch Me, $27.50 for a 10-pack

“I’m a picky eater in the sense that I can’t eat a lot of fun stuff due to colitis, so I love the simplicity of these bars and how they do still include some fun flavors! This is the newest flavor of the Picky family; I was able to taste test it ahead of time as part of their Picky Club and loved guessing the different things my taste buds were tasting! I recommend these bars to anyone with a sensitive stomach.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

American Giant The Pant, $69

“Long before I started running, I rode horses for years. I was pretty terrified of the beautiful beasts, but I loved the outfits! These sophisticated leggings remind me of the riding pants in the best possible way. The thick fabric makes them almost office-appropriate, but they are comfortable as coverups on chilly runs, too!” —Jessie Sebor, editor-in-chief

Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate, $24.99 per box

“I’ve been adding this collagen powder into my coffee in the morning and I think it has really positively impacted my recovery time. I’ve been racing a lot and have been bouncing back so much more quickly. —Sarah Canney of Run Far Girl and #TeamWR contributor

General Mills Girl Scouts Cookies Cereal, $2.99

“Limited-edition Girl Scouts cookie cereal—all the deliciousness of cookies without the same calorie content. Great straight from the box as a snack. The Thin Mints version is my favorite.” —Monica Olivas of Run Eat Repeat and #TeamWR contributor

Oiselle Muscle Long Sleeve, $76

“This shirt is so comfortable and kept me exactly the right temperature during my 17-miler—warm when I started and sweat wicking when I had been running for 2 hours and was hot! Plus, I’ve worn the top as athleisure and received a ton of compliments. I love the polka dots.” —Charlie Watson of The Runner Beans and #TeamWR contributor
