5 Things Women’s Running Loved This Week: September 15, 2017

Team WR's editors and writers pick their top five products for Sept. 15, 2017.

Diestel Turkey Chorizo, $12

“During the week, I’m guilty of downing a giant mug of coffee on the commute to work and calling that ‘breakfast,’ but on the weekends, we try to upgrade our morning meal. The Diestel Turkey Chorizo helped us do just that—we tried it mixed with scrambled eggs inside a tortilla and topped with avocado and cheese, and it was a hit. It was a win-win: a leaner, healthier meat loaded with flavor that even my kids and husband liked (it was spicy but not too spicy). We have a new favorite recovery meal after long runs!” –Bethany Mavis, managing editor

Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Protein Blend, $20 For 12 Oz. Bag

“I’m usually wary about protein powders, but this one by Carrington Farms doesn’t have the overpowering flavor that many others do. It’s simple to add to a fruit smoothie: just toss 1 Tbsp. into a blender with your other ingredients of choice and you’ll notice a slight coconut essence to complement the fruity flavors. It’s an easy option for when you’re low on energy after a morning run and need a protein boost!” –Meghan Roos, associate web editor

Wonderbly Personalized Books, Starting At $25

“For all the new running mamas, this is seriously the cutest book to keep your kids entertained while you’re home working out or out for a run. Wonderbly creates personalized storybooks with your child’s name and you get to pick fun characters to personalize the story even more. It’s great to had over to your little one when you need a little ‘mom’ time.” –Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer

Pjur Active 2Skin Anti-Chafing Gel, $22 for 3.4 Fl. Oz. Bottle

Move over, body glide–there’s a new anti-chafe gel in town! After years of bloody boobs and inner thighs, I was skeptical when I tried 2skin. It’s not perfect, but it works better than anything else I’ve tried! I’m convinced it’s part magic.” –Kelly Roberts, freelance writer

PR SOLES Recovery Sandals, $30

“In the last few miles of almost every run I think about two things: food and slipping into recovery sandals! I have worn PR SOLES for the better part of the last eight years and absolutely love them. I have two pairs–one always in my gym bag (they are great poolside, too!) and another waiting for me when I get home from a run.” –Allie Burdick, freelance writer
