5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

Here is our weekly installment of the wide array of things that #TeamWR is raving about this week—that we think you'll love too!

Feetures! High Performance Ultra Light No Show Tab, $12

“I’m the sort of runner who prefers to go sockless. Unfortunately, this isn’t great for the shelf-life (or should I say “smell life”) of my running shoes. This super lightweight pair of socks is the perfect compromise. The barely-there fabric and locked-in fit make you feel like you’re feet are wearing nothing at all.” —Jessie Sebor, editor in chief

SmashMallow Mint Chocolate Chip, $4

“In a very unscientific taste test, the mint-chocolate version of these fancy marshmallows won over the most people in our office. Advertised as an alternative to Peeps, most agreed they are better than those Easter treats. You definitely need to be a marshmallow person to enjoy the creative flavors from this company. Other options include Meyer Lemon Chia Seed (came in second place) and Cinnamon Churro and Strawberries & Cream (tied for third).” —Nicki Miller, managing editor

Boston Marathon: Year-by-Year Stories of the World’s Premier Running Event by Tom Derderian, $23

“As the Boston Marathon approaches, this is the perfect book as you make your way to Boston for the race. Get inspired by the stories behind amazing performances year-after-year and some insight into the iconic race from a world-class journalist. In addition, there are forewards to the book written by Joan Benoit-Samuelson and Shalane Flanagan (among others) which are both a must-read.” —Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor

WOW Baking Company Key Lime White Chocolate Wheat & Gluten-Free Cookies, $5

Bags of WOW Baking cookies on a white background.

“Gluten- and wheat-free cookies often taste dry. These cookies from WOW Baking Company are moist and taste like they came from a gourmet cookie shop. I like that they are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility so there is no chance of cross contamination from wheat! The tart key lime flavor makes me feel like I’m a beach somewhere with my favorite drink in hand.” —Dorothy Beal of Mile Posts and #TeamWR contributor

Topo Athletic Hydroventure, $130

“The Hydroventure from Topo Athletic are waterproof, which is perfect for spring running on wet trails and through snow melt. Plus, if the weather is cold they do a great job keeping feet warm!” —Sarah Canney of Run Far Girl and #TeamWR contributor
