Running Clothes

Running clothes are the endurance athlete's uniform. Running clothes are as much a part of health and well being as stretching and proper diet. Every activity in life requires its own uniform. Baseball players wear hats, mitts, cleats, and stirrups, and executives wear suits and ties. Whatever you're doing, there is clothing appropriate to that activity. Running is no different and it's in your best interest to invest in the right clothes.

The Right Running Clothes
There are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for running gear. First and foremost is practicality. Don't be fooled  into buying low-quality running clothes. You need clothes that are lightweight and comfortable. Running is a high intensity workout the can produce al lot of sweat, so these clothes need to be made to deal with moisture and work to keep you dry.  DriTek is a wonderful fabric that has all of the properties desired including a very soft hand. Look for something that will last.

Your running gear should fit. If shorts or pants are too tight, you will not have a full range of motion and this will limit the benefits of your workout. If they're too big, you can trip up on pant legs. You should find something loose and comfortable. Everyone is different when it comes to how they want their clothes to fit, but running clothes should be breathable and allow for full range of motion. Running Shorts come in a wide variety of styles, ranging from the very short inseam and split leg to a very long short. See the related article pertaining to choosing a pair of running shorts.

Because they are workout clothes, your running togs will require frequent washing (Do not use dryer sheets as these can decrease the wicking properties of fabrics.). It is important to wear clothes that can withstand this. Purchase running clothes made of durable materials that will not wear out. Polyester and lycra are some of the best materials and lots of running clothes are made of a blend of the two. The most important thing is your comfort.
