5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week

We have rounded up our weekly installment of favorite products and gear that are sure to become your new favorites, as well.

The North Face Animagi Jacket, $150

This jacket is fitted but not so much so that it isn’t functional. (You know what I’m talking about, when fashion comes before function. SMH.). It is just the right length in the torso and the right length in the arms to keep your fingers warm whether you’re running or chilling in the cold. Pair it with a cute infinity scarf or just with a warm beanie, and okay, maybe a little fashion is there, too.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

Brooks Ghost 9 GTX, $150

“Training for a marathon during east coast winters can be tough! These running shoes from Brooks Running have GORE-TEX, which not only helps to keep my feet toasty when it’s cold but are excellent shoes to run with when it’s rainy outside. They keep my feet dry and comfortable. Anything that helps me stay outside running longer is a must have in my book!” —Dorothy Beal of Mile Posts, TeamWR Contributor

Explore Cuisine Bean Pasta, 6 for $25

“Shockingly delicious, this bean pasta packs in protein and flavor. Sometimes pastas can be dry or taste grainy, but Explore Cuisine’s bean pastas taste like the real deal! I used the Lentil Lasagna Noodles for my dish and it was a big crowd pleaser. The Edamame Pasta makes for a killer pasta salad meal, too!” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer

Orgain Cold Brew + Protein, $4.50

“Yum-o-licious—these were so yummy that I had to hide them from my kids, especially once I made the mistake of letting them have a taste. Creamy and rich with no chalky aftertaste and no bitterness, this iced coffee with 10 grams of protein and 100 calories makes a satisfying post-workout treat. You can save the guilt for another day because this is organic, non-GMO milk from grassfed cows and fair-trade certified coffee.” —Allison Pattillo, contributing gear editor

IFROGZ Charisma Wireless Earbuds, $29.99

“Finally—a pair of headphones that I am not CONSTANTLY fixing in my ears. These are made for smaller women’s ears, so they won’t slip and slide. And because they are wireless, there is no crazy cord to deal with.” —Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor
