Lydia Wore It

I’m head over heels in love with the heat we’ve been having. During my college years I was a California girl, so my sunshine addiction is far beyond the reach of an intervention. Seattle summers are a beautiful thing, but if you’re a runner like me, you know that they require the right gear to protect yourself from extreme temperatures and harmful UV rays. If you’re training for a big race or just starting to run for fun, here are my favorite run essentials for summer.

Details below…

Summer Running Collage

One… Sennheiser Adidas Sport Headphones ($54.27)

Two… Neutrogena Sport Face (Target/Bartells/Amazon) – I also LOVE Trader Joe’s sunscreen and it’s only $5

Three…Nike Hat ($25)

Four…Lululemon Tracker Short ($54)

Five… Nike Mesh Run Tank ($35)

Six… Newton Distance Elite Running Shoes ($155 )

Remember to beat the heat with proper hydration (water! water! more water!), plenty of sunscreen, and the perfect playlist! Music got my through my first marathon last October and I can’t imagine running 26.2 miles without incredible tunes. I’ll get to work on a few workout playlists for you, no matter WHAT you like to do for exercise. Have fun out there hitting the pavement my friends!
