Summer is here, even in Colorado. I know it was 52 when I woke up this morning, but that's the beauty of Colorado vs. Texas. It cools off at night, and it isn't a steamy 87 when I leave for work before 7am. We have had 2 days already of 90+ degrees, and poor Allie is adjusting. I'm pulling brush fulls of fur out of her each day, and her fur is still flying around.
The key to summer is light clothing that breathes and wicks, and lighter colors. I love how the Skechers tank top felt when I first wore it, but it's black, and I'm not going to be running outside in dark colors. Gym, yes, and even in the gym, I need gear that breathes. Those built-in treadmill fans don't really cool me off.
Since I'm also extremely pasty, I always recommend sun screen. I know some woman run in sports bras without a shirt in the summer, but my body would sear, so I opt for the shirts. I've been meaning to get more shirts with sleeves, but I didn't make much progress with that. I only got one New Balance shirt, so I should get back to that.
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
