5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

It's time again for our weekly installment of the gear, apparel and nutrition that had #TeamWR ranting and raving all week long.

Topo Athletic ST-2, $90

“I’m new to the Topo club, and I was honestly surprised at how much I loved this shoe. I have narrow feet, so the wide toe box was an initial deterrent for me. It’s also freakishly light, so it was perfect during my hard, quick workouts during marathon training.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Rip van Wafels Coconut, $24.99 for 16

This is a great pre-workout snack to go with my morning cup of joe. It tastes like desert and gives me enough energy to get through my morning workout. Also, it makes for a tasty lower-calorie sweet when the craving strikes.” —Jess Underhill of Race Pace Jess and #TeamWR contributor

Sarah Marie Design Studio Varsity Jacket, $109

“What’s old is new again with this varsity jacket! You can add patches or pins to it or leave it as is with the runner girl patch. It’s made of a soft cotton fabric so it’s a really cozy option to throw on post run or as a cute lifestyle piece!” —Dorothy Beal of Mile Posts and #TeamWR contributor

Smartwool Run Light Elite Pattern Crew Socks, $21.95

“I love the mix and match pattern on these socks. The crew length is perfect for the trails and merino wool is the way to go in both warm and cool weather.” —Sarah Canney of Run Far Girl and #TeamWR contributor

Huma Chia Energy Gel, $54 for a box of 24

These chia gels are kind on your stomach, not sickly sweet and are made of natural ingredients.” —Charlie Watson of The Runner Beans and #TeamWR contributor
