If you're fortunate to live in a warm-weather climate, you might not even know that today is the first day of spring. For the rest of us, it's time to celebrate the end of winter.
Better temps on the rise signal a shift in your training apparel, too. For all you lady tracksters, The North Face has you covered with a crop of stylish wears intended to help you perform your best — and look good while you're at it.
Crush on these three picks for spring.
GTD Short-Sleeved Shirt, $40
If you subscribe to the less-is-more mantra, this training shirt is for you. It's ultra-light, so you won't feel weighted down with sweat when you've got repeats on the sched. The shirt is built with FlashDry, technology designed to manage moisture and regulate temperature. Another standout feature: ventilation in the middle of the back and under the arms to help keep you cool.
Shavasana Cami, $60
OK, this is technically from the brand's yoga line, but it makes the cut for its cut. If you like to train in form-fitting apparel, you'll appreciate this body-hugging offering. The cami is built with an internal shelf bra that offers some support, but you'll likely want to double with a sports bra if you're doing a speed or distance workout. Bonus: the four-way stretch Supplex Nylon fabric is designed to not wrinkle, shrink or fade.
Eat My Dust Skirt, $55
A name like that has to bring a smile to your face. And if it doesn't, you'll probably get one after trying on this smokin' number. A nice alternative to a traditional track short, no doubt, the skirt is built with a boy short liner that aims to prevent chafing. The fast-drying material is supposed to reduce water absorption, meaning don't sweat the sweat.
