Arm warmers....I certainly wish I was the one holding the patent (assuming there is such a thing).
Here we are, in the midst of Spring. Some days it still feels like Winter, while others feel like Summer has arrived in full force.
What's a runner to do when the air is chilly, but the temps are going to be rising while you're running? Not a fan of freezing it out in the first mile, I opt for some handy dandy arm warmers.
Care to hear a few reasons why?
They're a great transition accessory. How many times have you wrestled with what to wear for a race? Often times, it's quite a bit colder at the start line than at the finish. The arm warmers can easily be slid off (or at least rolled down) after the first few miles if need be. I often times tie them around my waist after I've warmed up.
Anyways, that's my perspective on arm sleeves. For me, they serve a valuable purpose, and they look rather fashionable doing so. Win-win!
Your thoughts? Are you a "cold" runner or a "warm" runner? Have you ever tried arm sleeves? Favorite season for running?
