Useful Equipment for Runners by Dan Chabert from RunnerClick

posted by: Dan Chabert, ultramarathon runner & owner of RunnerClick

It’s kind of funny, really. Running is one of the most accessible and affordable sports out there. It doesn’t require a fancy gym membership, years of personalized and technical instruction, or even all that much equipment, per se. Provided you have a safe place to run -- indoors or outdoors, it doesn’t really matter -- and a pair of shoes to wear, along with an unbridled enthusiasm to get out there and go after your goals -- you’re all set. You can run, you can call yourself a runner, and life is good.
