Sports Bras
There are lots of cotton ones out there. I prefer some sort of dri weave, or mesh or nylon such as Champion.® Speaking of which, check out Champion's Site for a good education on different styles. They have a Friction Free® Running Seamless Sports Bra model. Fogdog also has a wide selection, just type in sports bra.

What to Look For in Women's Running Gear

For running gear, instead of choosing cotton that stays damp when you sweat, choose newer fabrics that take moisture away from your skin and dry faster. No matter what our sport, the garment that is touching our skin we make sure is this kind of lightweight, highly breathable fabric. Search for keywords like "dri weave", "wick away", "nylon",  "lycra", "microfiber" and "mesh". Champion just introduced a new line called "double dry." It works great for running, bras, shorts, tops. The main thing to look for in this type of clothing is either thin, breathable fabric or panels that pull moisture away from your skin. Next get a good fitting pair of running shoes. So go out there and get running!

Running in a Road Race this year? Well run for a reason! Be an American Cancer Society Charity Runner and dedicate your run to those that have been touched by cancer.
