This month we celebrated National Running Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to celebrate year-round. To help you have the smoothest experience, we wanted to share some of our favorite running accessories.

TruRunner

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention one of our newest products. The TruRunner belt is the perfect way to take your essentials—phone, mp3 player, keys, protein bar, etc.—with you on your run. The adjustable elastic belt keeps it snug and bounce-free. It’s water- and sweat-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your electronics. And if you’re in the mood for a night run, the built-in reflector will help you stand out. $19.95

Sportline HydraCoach

We all know it’s important to stay hydrated while running, but this smart water bottle makes sure you aren’t falling behind. The bottle calculates how much water you should be drinking each day, tracks how much you’ve already drank and sends you a reminder when it detects that you’re behind. $29.99

Body-Glide

When you’re running long distances, the parts of your body that may rub together (like your thighs) are prone to chafing. So before you head out, just rub on some of this balm to help prevent any irritation. $6

Kiehl’s Cross Terrain “Dry Run” Foot Cream

Sweaty feet from long, regular runs can lead to skin irritation, blisters and other nuisances that you just want to avoid whenever possible. Massage a bit of this lotion on your feet before your run and it helps to keep your feet dry. $17.50

PowerBar Gel         

This is particularly helpful if you’re a long distance runner. Running a marathon or even a half marathon can really suck the energy out of you. Pull one of these bad boys—which come in ten different flavors—out of your TruRunner when you feel that you need a boost to help you reach the finish line. The twist-off cap makes it really easy to open without slowing down. $1.35 each; 24-pack for $30; 96-pack for $110.60
