- Keeps you cool when it's hot and dry (and therefore warm) when it's cold
- Removes sweat from your skin, preventing rash
- Is gentle against your skin, so you won't get chafed nipples, underarms or thighs (should I have put that reason first?!)
Road Runner Sports
Puma and Lululemon also make some nice tanks, but I haven't found shirts that work.
Temp: 49 degrees (~9C)
Wind: 10 mph
Humidity/Precip.: High/Steady rain
Terrain: Rolling hills
Distance: 3.75 miles
What I Wore: Road Runner Sport long sleeve t, Nike shorts and hat (with brim to keep rain off face), Amphipod LED arm band (running at dusk in the rain = hard to see).
Did It Work: No. Thanks to the headwind on the way home, my hands and behind my ears were really cold. Outbound was perfect, homebound was uncomfortable. Next time, a thin skull cap and I'll carry light gloves.
