MODe Post-Workout Recovery 6-Pack, $45
“Albeit pricey—I definitely can’t afford this on the regular—this cucumber-lime concoction was perfect for chugging down after a run. It’s refreshing and, call me crazy, but I did notice an extra pep in my step from the inside out for the rest of the evening.” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor
Honey Stinger Gluten Free Vanilla Chocolate Waffle, $24 For Box Of 16
“The newest gluten-free option from Honey Stinger tastes more like a cookie than a waffle. The vanilla chocolate waffle isn’t as healthy a snack as an apple or a handful of almonds, but it sure does taste good–and with all natural ingredients, it satisfies your sweet tooth cravings in a way you can feel good about.” —Meghan Roos, associate web editor
Your Pace Or Mine?, $15
“An awesome book about running and lessons from the journey by Lisa Jackson. Jackson has run more than 100 marathons and come in last place several times! All those miles have taught her many lessons and she shares the best of those in this fun read.” —Monica Olivas, Run Eat Repeat blogger
Injinji Women’s Run Lightweight No-Show Socks, $12
“When I first heard about these socks, the idea of running in toe socks seemed just plain uncomfortable. However, after giving them a try, I am officially converted. These socks are fantastic because they allow your toes to fully extend and properly grip while running. Imagine trying to sign your name while wearing mittens versus gloves. That’s the difference between running in these socks compared with traditional running socks!” —Stephanie Hoppe, We Run the World blogger
New Balance FuelCore Sonic, $110
“Super light and comfortable, the FuelCore Sonic is an awesome road running shoe. I love the Boa System because it’s easy to put on and adjust! Especially ideal for my upcoming triathlon. It doesn’t need much breaking-in time; I put these on for a light jog and my feet felt fine from the get-go. The style is cute, and the color options are great!” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
