Nowadays running gear plays an important role in the daily running routine of a lot of runners.

Clothes

When I started running I didn’t care much about clothes. I was just wearing a regular t-shirt and some sweatpants.

Gadgets

Today there is a wide range of technology gadgets available for runners and devices like smartphones and smart watches can be used to track and log your training sessions.
