This shirt is made out of their new Omni-Freeze material that is designed to cool you down when it's really hot and to keep you dry and comfortable.
Let me say, they picked the right time to send me this shirt because this was the temperature when i headed out for my run tonight:
|It's a "dry heat"|
I really enjoy this shirt! It's no gimmick - it really does keep you feeling cool. There are little vent pockets around the edges & that helps the air circulate. It's really lightweight & i hardly felt it at all during my 3 mile run. The fit worked well for me too. It didn't ride up during my run, which is a blessing because trust me - no one needs to see the catastrophe that is my stomach!
|Size large in Oxide Blue.|
|Um, ignore my chicken neck please.|
My only complaint is that it's a little pricey. ($45) I received this product for free from Columbia for testing purposes - and if the price comes down a bit, i will totally purchase one!
Ok, so as i mentioned before it has been HOT here. Yes, I am crazy for running outside in this heat. But i wait until the sun is setting and I promise you it's not that bad. Sure, when a breeze comes through it feels like a hair dryer, but we have very little humidity & that helps a lot.
Anyways, i ran last night & tonight. One word for Tuesday night's run: Oof. I felt really sluggish and heavy and it was just gross. Tonight's run was a bit better. I worked on pushing myself more, even though my time was still slower than i wanted it to be. Eh, i'll blame it on the heat. :)
Tuesday: 3 miles, 41:55
Wednesday: 3 miles, 40:26
Well, at 11:50 tonight I'm on the red eye out to Virginia to visit my family!! So if i'm a bit quiet the next few days, that's why. :)
