We asked our staff…
…what is one piece of workout gear that never ever leaves your car?

“A pair of running shoes…also running clothes, headphones and a water bottle. Basically, I drive a gym locker—you never know when you might want to get in a run!”
—Jessie Sebor, Editor in Chief

“I have a recent addition: a ball cap. My hair is at a length that it’s a necessity—so I found the other week the hard way.”
—Nicki Miller, Managing Editor

“My sunglasses. Not a specific pair, I just keep a rotation of three or so sporty options going at all times.”
—Allison Patillo, Contributing Gear Editor

“My tennis ball! I use it to roll under tight hamstrings and loosen my lower back as I drive.”
—Christine Hinton, Contributing Writer

“Sunscreen to put on before the run and a SeatSkull to absorb all the sweat afterward.”
—Erin Ream, Director of Partnership Development & Account Management

“My yoga mat!”
—Molly Quinn, Senior Vice President of Sales, Competitor Group
