5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

The Women's Running editorial team shares 5 things they loved during the week of July 21, 2017.

Off The Beaten Track Sail, $125

“Packing for summer vacations can be a chore for runners, with the extra room needed for your training kicks taking up valuable space in your luggage. Make your shoe wardrobe do stylish double duty with these Off The Beaten Track sandals. Take it from me, these sandals more than earned their keep on my recent trip to the Caribbean. These wedges are pretty enough to wear to an elegant beachside dinner and well-constructed enough to get you safely up a hillside trail to the perfect picnic spot overlooking the ocean.” —Rebecca Warren, editor-in-chief

LoveTheWild Frozen Seafood Kit, $11

“I love to eat fish, but finding it fresh (and reasonably priced!) then preparing it correctly without drying it out is a whole other story. Enter Love The Wild’s frozen seafood kits—each package ($10.99) contains a 7-ounce fillet of frozen fish along with three (adorable heart-shaped) molds of frozen sauce, and the fish is sustainably farmed (the name of the farmer and location of the farm are actually printed on each package). You simply wrap in foil (for grill) or the included parchment paper (for oven), pair with a veggie and some quinoa, and you have a well-rounded meal on the table in 25 minutes or less! (Also, our favorite Leo is an investor.)” —Bethany Mavis, managing editor

NuttZo Power Fuel, $16

“I was expecting a greasy, oily mess from this, but I was very surprised by how light it tasted given all the different nuts in it. One scoop in my morning smoothie and I get a nice hit of protein!” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Clair Ashley Running Mates Shoe Tags, $14-$28 per pair

“These silver aluminum charms serve as cute, lightweight reminders of coffee, wine, tacos–you know, the things that truly matter. Clair Ashley also makes charms tagged with inspirational mantras and offer customers the ability to design personalized messages made specifically for their running buddies, but I personally find it helpful to remember the cup of coffee that’s giving my run an extra buzz. These would be a sweet pre-race treat for your friend or loved one before they take on their first half or full marathon!” —Meghan Roos, associate web editor

Brooks Ghost 10, $120

“Obsessed! I’m a loyal Ghost wearer, but I didn’t like the Ghost 9. So when the Ghost 10 came out, I was skeptical. However, I was immediately pleased and loved every stride. I love the stitch-free design and 3-D fit print on the back. It’s light and supportive with excellent flexibility. Not to mention the cute colors!” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
