Debunk a myth that we grew up on - that cotton is king for everything. Not so for basic running apparel. Invest in some moisture wicking running socks which will keep your feet dry as they wick away the sweat. Believe me, it's important. They help keep your feet blister free as you sweat while you run.
You may shake your head in disbelief if I tell you that pure cotton is out. It’s definitely not the best fabric for running—or for any vigorous sport for that matter. I, too, found this difficult to believe but soon realized this was not a marketing con but actually makes a huge difference.
Check out all the branded sports apparel manufacturers for micro-fibre running T-shirts with fabric names of Play Dry (Reebok), Dri Fit and Sphere Dry (Nike) Nike Plus and Climacool (Adidas). These are all fabrics made from varying compositions of cotton, spandex, lycra and polyester. Each brand has its own proprietary mix-which ensures that when you sweat, the fabric absorbs it immediately, wicks it away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric and then enables swift evaporation, keeping your body dry and cool. All this comes with an extra-light T-shirt which remains non-clingy, so that you can carry on running comfortably.We also make a line of great "Run Dry" T shirts, shorts, and men's running briefs to keep you dry and comfortable and cool, as also water bottle belts for running.

Microfibre briefs :Smooth, stretchable, extra-light and quick-drying, these are still few and far between in India. If you find them difficult to locate, check out Jockey, Underarmour, Maidenform, Triumph and Asics on your next trip overseas. Or you can shop online (search for microfibre briefs)—worth the effort.
Running shorts:Ensure that there is an adequate inner pocket for your car/house key. A loose fit is generally best for ventilation, to swiftly dry the sweat.
Running socks:Again, from one of the sports brands. Check out running socks styles that are ankle-high rather than shin-high (opt for blends rather than pure cotton—the principle remains the same as in the T-shirt, keeping your feet dry and cool. They should wick away the sweat and promote evaporation, rather than just absorbing the sweat, which cotton does.

But remember : It’s best to break into your new gear gradually. If you are a long-distance runner, you need to use your new gear on a few shorter runs and have these washed a few times before your first run of 10-15 miles (about 16-24km) or more. I have seen marathoners at the starting line in new gear and new shoes, and later spotted some running barefoot, shoes in hand, nips bleeding, over the last few miles.
|Some gear for the committed runner :|
When you plan to buy a treadmill – be clear about what you want to use it for
As a clothes hanger – make sure it has lots of hooks, bars and handles
To get you on a guilt trip to start running – make sure it is the most expensive one in the market with all the features
As a display piece in your living room – should be sleek as hell
But maybe you also want one to run on one of them – so this is what to look for if you are buying one to run on:
There are several brands of machines in the market today – here are some broad guidelines to help you buy an appropriate treadmill for your needs. Avoid manual treadmills.
Get the most from your treadmill: Wear clean running shoes on your treadmill
