This time of year is so perfect for running. (Well, when you’re not injured or having an “off” week…). You probably know by now that I love summer running clothes because they are so light and easy, but fall running clothes are a close second. I don’t have to worry as much about chafing in the cooler weather but that is the one thing I don’t like about running shorts. I thought I would share some of my favorites for fall running today. Most of these are items I have had since last year so I have had plenty of time to try them out and make sure they really are worth sharing!

Let’s start with clothes. For most of my runs I have been wearing capris with a tank top and long-sleeved t-shirt or 1/2 zip. This will probably differ depending on where you live but I feel like it’s worked for temps in the 40s.
Lululemon Outrun 1/2 zip They don’t make the exact same one I have anymore but this one looks really close! I love the thumb holes and the ends of the sleeves fold over if you need to cover your hands but don’t want to wear gloves.
Oiselle Knickers These fit perfectly and are really comfortable. They have a nice big pocket on the side which fits my phone!
ProCompression Leggings (sadly they don’t make these anymore!)
C9 Champion Capris I’m not sure exactly which style I have (mine are a few years old) but these are pretty close. They are so comfortable- I love wearing them around the house even when I’m not working out.
Tanks (Base Layer):
These are all perfect for base layering (I like when they are kind of long) and I also wear them when I am working out inside.
I try to only wear gloves when I really have to- I love when a shirt has thumb holes so I can keep my hands warm without having to wear gloves!
What about shoes? This really isn’t impacted by the weather or season but these are the two models I have been wearing for the past few months:
Ok, now for the accessories. This is particularly important in the fall because the mornings and evenings are so dark. These are some of the items I bring on almost all of my runs:
SmarterLife LED Headlamp This is so small and light I barely notice I am wearing it, but it’s also really bright!
Amphipod Reflective Running Vest This is perfect to slip over whatever I am wearing no matter what the temperature is. It also has a pocket so I can stick my key in there.
Luckily I can use/wear a lot of this stuff all year long which is great because it feels like fall is such a short season! I really like having items that can work for more than one time of year- like tanks that can be worn on their own or layered, leggings that are light enough to wear before it gets really cold, and socks that are medium thickness and will work any time that it’s not super hot or super cold.
