Having the right gear means you will always be ready for what the trail throws at you.
Whether you are heading out for 30 minutes or a full day dress for the dirt!



A wicked-light tee is great for full-on workouts, but a sweat-soaked, wicked-smelly tee is not. Mountain Hardwear made their Double Wicked T-Shirt from Wicked Taper SD, which dries in a flash and wicks away moisture. So you'll stay cool, dry, and comfy when pushing your body to its extreme limit. And an antimicrobial treatment helps control odor, so you're doubly sweet, not doubly stinky.


Lose the old undies-under-shorts setup you used to sport and go with the Mountain Hardware Men's Refueler Short for all of your trail and road ventures. As you pound pavement or dirt, the quick-drying material pulls moisture away from your skin to evaporate while a DWR coating on the exterior fends off splashes and sprinkle.


Feel as cool as a spring breeze when you sport the Mountain Hardwear Women's Wicked Lite T-Shirt. This lightweight shirt's feminine silhouette and moisture-wicking fabric combine fashion and function to make a super-versatile baselayer. With its flatlock seams and feather weight, it rests on your skin like a butterfly, and its antimicrobial treatment helps keep you fresh-smelling so you're not shunned on your run or ride

 
 

The Mountain Hardwear Women's Pacer 2-In-1 Short has the classic short-runner-shorts look with a built-in tight short for moisture-wicking thigh coverage.

Question: When Should I Replace My Running Shoes?
How do I know when to replace my running shoes?
ByChristine Luff, About.com Guide
 

 

   

 
Answer: Running in old or worn-out shoes is one of the most common causes of running injuries. Your running shoes lose shock absorption, cushioning and stability over time. Continuing to run in worn-out running shoes increases the stress and impact on your legs and joints, which can lead to overuse injuries. The easiest thing you can do to prevent those types of injuries is replace your running shoes when they're worn-out.

 

So how do you know when shoes need to be retired? Don't use the treads of your running shoes to determine whether you should replace your shoes. The midsole, which provides the cushioning and stability, usually breaks down before the bottom shows major signs of wear. If you've been feeling muscle fatigue, shin splints, or some pain in your joints -- especially your knees -- you may be wearing running shoes that no longer have adequate cushioning.

 

A good rule of thumb is to replace your running shoes every 300 to 400 miles, depending on your running style, body weight, and the surface on which you run. Smaller runners can get new running shoes at the upper end of the recommendation, while heavier runners should consider replacement shoes closer to the 300 mile mark. If you run on rough roads, you'll need to replace your running shoes sooner than if you primarily run on a treadmill.

 

Mark your calendar when you buy a new pair of running shoes so you remember when to replace them. If you use a training log, be sure to record when you bought new shoes -- it will help you track how many miles you've run in them. Writing the purchase date on the inside of each shoe's tongue is another good way to help remember when you first started running in them.

 

About halfway through the life of your running shoes, you might want to buy another pair of running shoes to rotate into your runs. Your shoes will last longer when you allow them to decompress and dry out between workouts. Also, having a fresh pair of shoes as a reference will help you notice when your old ones are ready to be replaced.

 

Although you should replace your shoes every 300 to 400 miles, there are ways to get to the higher end of that range. Follow these tips for making your running shoes last longer. Once you've bought a new pair of running shoes, you can donate your old ones to one of theseorganizations that collect used running shoes .
