5. Roam Roller
Running can take a heavy toll on your muscles, especially if you develop IT band issues. Sore and tight muscles are common after running and sometimes relieving these ailments require a deep-tissue massage, which aren’t cheap. Enter your new best friend: foam rollers. You put foam rollers, which are about one- to two-feet long, under your troubled spot and roll over it for 10 to 15 seconds.
