Ah, spring. It's finally warm-ish, and running is almost pleasant again. But most of us know that the elements can still be pretty unpredictable-rain, wind, sun and even some snow depending on where you live-so it's good to have a variety of gear you can count on for any type of weather might encounter while running outside.
From rain jackets to sunglasses, here are 10 pieces that you'll not only look good in but feel good in, too, no matter where you live.
