RAUDEL ARTEAGA RUNNER, REMIX YOUR KICKS P.82 Mental health is equally as important to physical health, and having a time to meditate and separate from the everyday stresses is very important.JOHN BRANT WRITER, THE ORIGINAL SNEAKERHEAD P.88 During long runs, divert your mind by reciting poems, mantras, or quotes to distract yourselfif you need it.DERRICK CHEEKS RUNNER, HIGH SCHOOL STOKE P.66 I think one of the best things you can do as a runner is to remember to smile. A smile will make you feel better even when running is hard. It also makes other people happy, and it can make someone else’s run better, too.ZOFIE CHRISTIAN RUNNER, HIGH SCHOOL STOKE, P.66 If someone tells you to take a day off, listen to them and take a day off.

DANIELLE ZICKLASSOCIATE HEALTH AND FITNESS EDITOR // MY LIFE GOAL IS TO ADOPT A CAT I CAN RUN WITH1 / Led Zeppelin Tank $20 Anyone who knows me knows I love classic rock. This T-shirt (which I chopped the sleeves off of immediately when I got it) is super baggy and comfortable, perfect for a strength-training session or a few easy miles of running.2 / Pink Lemonade Probar Bolt Energy Chews $26 I fueled my first half marathon—and all the weekend long runs during training—with these chews. The pink-lemonade flavor is both sweet and tangy but not overpowering. Bonus is that the gummies don’t upset my stomach like others I tried.3 / Earth Fed Muscle Vanilla Whey Protein Powder $45 My go-to form of cross-training is lifting weights, and I’ll…

the inside lane

ON A LATE-WINTER morning, I hadn’t made it a mile from the trailhead on the Taconic Crest Trail in western Massachusetts, but I was in agony, unable to run another step. The shoes I’d laced up at my car were killing me. They were stiff. And heavy. And rock-hard on the still-frozen ground. Worse, they fit my foot terribly, and I was sliding off the side as I ran along the edge of the ridge. There was no way I could run the planned 10 miles wearing those dogs. So I hung them from a tree branch and pulled a second pair out of my backpack for the rest of the run.Such is life as a shoe geek—especially one who makes a living by testing and reviewing running shoes. I…

IN DEFENSE OF POCKETSOiselle Roga Shorts / $60 I’ll say it: All running shorts should have pockets. Not cavernous holes that swallow your hands, but snug, secure spaces to hold essentials. Without them, I’ve resorted to safety-pinning gel packets to my shorts and clenching my phone as I ran over bridges, and have endured chafing from ill-fitting race belts. For runners like me, Oiselle’s Roga Shorts solve all those problems. They have a zippered back pocket and four mesh ones that work like a utility belt. Now, I can bring my most important gear on every run without feeling weighed down. —Amanda Furrer, test editorNike Vomero 14’s new full-length air unit runs heel-to-toe.Here’s a look at the two air units found in the older Vomero 12.Craft Repel Jacket / $174…
