Yesterday and today were slightly warmer than earlier in the week, low 40s. I bought a new Avalanche running top at T.J. Maxx on Black Friday so I tested it out yesterday for an 8 miler.
Take me to your leader.
Do you love thumb holes as much as me?
The Voltiac hooded pullover was $24.99 at T.J. Maxx instead of $50.00-$75.00 online. I wore a tank top sports bra and a Uniqlo heattech turtle neck underneath, The Uniqlo heattech technology redistributes your body heat to keep you nice and toasty. I love it for my cold weather runs. However it does not wick away sweat, so when your run is over, you should immediately remove the top because it will be soaked. The Avalanche top has a soft liner inside for warmth. By the second mile, I realized I could have done without the turtle neck. The Avalanche inner liner also wicks away sweat. The outer layer stretches for optimal movement. The high scuba collar keeps your neck warm when the hood is up. This is a perfect top for the winter, as both a base and outer layer.
Today was a balmy 43 degrees at 9am when I went out for another 8 miler. I wore a pair of shorts, but didn't forget my hat and gloves! I'm not crazy, you know.
