Confession time! I have an obsession with fluorescent/neon/day-glo colored clothing. I think it stems back to my childhood, being a young and impressionable tween/pre-teen back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Back then, I can promise if you replaced my closet light with a black light bulb my entire wardrobe would have blinded you.
I’ve been running in the Saucony ProGrid Kinvaras for almost a month now, and I love them more and more every day (review here), color choice aside.
Now, I’ve heard over and over again “I don’t get arm warmers…why not wear a long sleeve
shirt?” and I’ll tell you why. Because I like options. As a South East runner, you never know what the weather is going to be like in the fall and winter. 32 degrees and frosty one day. 70 and beach weather the next. 45 degrees in the morning. 84 , hot and humid at noon. I’m telling you, it’s crazy down here. And when I run in a sports bra, a tank top or short sleeve (in case it warms up) and a long sleeve, my core sweats. A LOT. I get hot. But my arms, they get cold. Blame poor circulation and South Carolina weather. Arm warmers are the perfect solution because I can keep one layer on the core, and an easy to shed layer keeping my arms warm.
The Elite Arm warmers have:
• Thermo-regulating fabric keeps you dry
• Wicking fibers move moisture off the skin
• 50+ UV protection from the sun
AND, most importantly, they stay put, they keep my arms warm, and they are comfortable. Oh yeah, and drivers can probably see me from half a mile away. End of story.
If you are a trail runner, a dawn or dusk runner, or even just a 80’s/90’s neon fashionista at heart, check out the Saucony ViZiPRO line for MEN and WOMEN. From jackets, to vests, to shoes, arm warmers, hats, gloves, and more….the ViZiPRO line will keep you bright and safe!
Happy (safe, visible) running my friends!
