Drink On, Run Strong
Summer’s warm weather means more time to get your heart racing and enjoy the outdoors on bike or foot. Staying hydrated while sweating in the sweltering weather makes each step or pedal enjoyable and safe.
With the Camelback Lobo ($75-$85), you can carry your valuables and drink water with ease. Filling it is simple with the quick access flap. Cross ventilation on the back pad cools the wearer and the water simultaneously. Multiple pockets ensure objects are organized and protected while the adjustable straps provide the perfect fit every time.
Support for the Sole
Running on the beach barefoot is unlike anything else. The sand cushions feet and each step propels the next. Trendy minimalist running shoes, like the PureConnect 2 ($100), mimic the freedom of barefoot running. The lightweight shoe’s slim style and cushioned sole enable comfortable, natural strides.
The PureConnect 2’s design supports proper alignment and maximizes energy efficiency, meaning you’ll be able to run harder and longer. Garry Gribble’s Running Sports offers complimentary Good Form Running Classes to ensure customers get the most out of each run.
Now that summer is finally here, people are eager to hit the outdoors. Whether your sport is tennis, golf or another outdoor adventure, be the best-dressed person at the country club with Athleta’s Gravity Polo ($59).
This stretchy polo allows for a full range of motion, whether you’re serving match point or aiming for that hole in one. Featuring an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+, and composed of a lightweight, breathable fabric that wicks away sweat, it’s sure to keep you cool under the summer sun and protect you from unwanted rays. Available in three colors—mint, granite gray and white.
During the summer, everyone hears about how important it is to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Equally important is protecting your peepers from the bright sunlight, whether you’re lounging by the pool or going for an outdoor run or bike ride. You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort as you step out in the sun with Bollé’s line of sunglasses (styles starting at $69.99).
Made with high-performance athletes in mind, each pair incorporates a variety of frame and lens technologies, including adjustable nose pads and temple tips to polarization. The company offers its exclusive CompetiVision for tennis players and EagleVision for golfers.
