Now that we have had to experience a little chill here in New England, I thought I would write about why I majorly heart arm sleeves.
Not only can you channel your inner Kara Goucher or Shalane Flanagan, you can run comfortably in those in between fall and spring temps. Why do I love arm sleeves so much? I sweat a lot when I run, and I can’t stand feeling too warm. You sweat a lot through your armpits, so it’s nice to be able to wear a tank top, but still keep your arms from getting too cold.
So we’ve established that arm sleeves are functional, but they are also a way to add a little style to your running outfit. Sleeves used to be available in solid colors, but now there are a ton of different prints and patterns available.
If you are looking for sleeves for the cooler end of the temp range, check out Toasty Mitts from Skirt Sports—I love these! If you are looking for a little spunk, check out these arm warmers from Sugoi or these ones from ASICS.
