Today is the American Running Day, so to celebrate the simplest of exercises (and Spotify’s Running feature), here is a list of the best gadgets to help you get over that finish line.

Adidas Energy Boost Shoes

The soles of these new Adidas Energy Boost trainers are said to revolutionise the way you run. The foam of its soles bounces back into shape after every step, thereby reducing the strain on joints and muscles. Also important, is the shoe’s super-lightweight construction.

Mission Cooling Towel

This magic towel is made of a proprietary fabric that cools significantly when it’s soaked in water, wrung out, and then snapped. It’s perfect when you feel hot and sweaty after the gym or a run, albeit with Ireland’s weather that doesn’t happen that often.

Jaybird Blue Buds

As the official earbuds of the USA Triathlon, the Jaybird Blue Buds will transform the way you listen to phone calls, music, books, or podcasts on the run. They work through Bluetooth, last eight hours soild on each charge, and deliver a high-quality charge.

Knuckle Lights

For those of you who run at night, Knuckle Lights is the gadget you have been waiting for. This device boasts twice the amount of light than average (45 Lumens on high-power), and wearing them on your hands creates a swath of light at your feet that brightens your path.
