5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

The Women's Running editors discuss five products that caught their attention during the week of June 23, 2017.

Sport RX Nike Essential Chaser Prescription Sunglasses, starting at $99

“Sure, you can buy sports sunglasses and prescription sunglasses, but it’s very difficult to find a frame that boasts both. For a runner with poor vision and an aversion to contacts ( like me), SportsRX is a total game-changer. The company has dozens of fitness-specific sunnies to choose from, all of which can be customized with your perscription. I love how this style from Nike looks and the way it performs–but mostly I love not tripping on cracks, roots and rocks!” —Jessie Sebor, vice president of media and content strategy

Happiest Tee, starting at $89

“We are always looking for the perfect loungewear for post-run relaxing or to add to our rest day wardrobe. The Happiest Tee is a fantastically soft and fun addition to your casual and comfy collection. Made in the USA and printed with luxe foil, these shirts proclaim your happy place to the world. Great to show some hometown pride or shout out your favorite vacation spot, these fun tees combine wanderlust and wearability in one cute package.” —Rebecca Warren, editor-in-chief

Topo Ultrafly, $120

“My first time trying these shoes was during my last marathon training cycle, and they are now one of my favorite shoes! They are crazy light and worked perfectly for me during tempo runs or any type of interval work. Highly recommend!” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Road Runner Sports R-Gear Revived Printed Racerback, $30

“I’m a sucker for new running tops–I can never seem to have too many! This racerback is soft and has a handful of color options (great for those of us that love bright colors and wild patterns!). The material doesn’t ride up around your stomach and breathes well so you can run without instantly accumulating those gross sweat stains. Definitely a summer staple!” —Meghan Roos, associate web editor

Arctic Zero Cherry Chocolate Chunk, $5

“I’m always skeptical to try ‘healthy’ frozen treats. The taste usually is chalking, unnatural and unflavorful. However, Arctic Zero is DELICIOUS! I took one bite of the Cherry Chocolate Chunk and was in love. It’s refreshing, actually tastes like a frozen yogurt or ice cream and is healthier than most dessert options. Taking just a few bites helps curb any sweet craving I get. Love, love, love Artic Zero.” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
