Trend Bite: Run + Walk

Staying fit and active is not only part of a healthy lifestyle, it’s also a booming trend. Walking, running and participating in marathons are becoming even more popular, especially with the anticipation of warmer temperatures and racing season. As National Running Day approaches on June 3, we’ve rounded up a collection of some of the best new gear to get you ready for your run.

We've spotted lots of bright hues and unexpected color combinations on the latest shoe models and apparel (take note of the Nike Free and the glow-in-the-dark New Balance shoes). Plenty of new apps and tech gadgets help you stay in tune with workout stats (we love the Nike+ SportWatch and the FitBit One). And finally, fuel your workout with some great new products like Gu Gels and Nuun electrolyte tablets.

Ready, set, run!
