Work It Out
Thanks to the Olympics, we’re in an athletic state of mind. Our editors share their must-have workout gear and where they go to sweat it out.

Where: Central Park, the reservoir and the Park drive/loop, depending on the day and my mood. Under duress, I'll use a treadmill.
Who: Alone, except when joined by my running partner Nancy Chilton and on Sundays, her daughter, Ali.
Gear: I tend to favor black clothes, even when running outdoors in the summer and I never wear shorts because I tan easily and short tan lines are not appealing.
Prep and recovery are just as important as workout gear. My fuel of choice is two Ito-en Sencha shots, pure concentrated green tea with no sugar. And post-workout, I love coconut water for the electrolytes and potassium (and it has way fewer calories than a sports drink).
