Gotta wear something … ok … maybe you don’t … but it is in my best interest for me to!
Race Shirts: Race shirts are whatever I find. I remember my buddy Heather saying that after a while I would have piles of race shirts that were graded A, B, C. Now race shirts are usually tech shirts, so it’s a bit harder to just toss them. I did find a local company I liked, but part is that they’re cut for “normal” sized people and I’m a medium. ME! The company is Born Fit and will have more information later.
Arm Warmers: Ok – I’ve got an ancient set of Performance arm warmers that I used when I was bike racing in the 1980’s. They do the trick for the most part, but they are a bit heavy. I’m trying out the ones that feel like cut off long-sleeved t-shirts and another mid-weight pair. Another keeping you posted!
Gloves: I have something called Reynaud’s Disease. This means that I have to be a bit more careful with hands and feet. 2012 is finding me spending more time outdoors training. I overheat like nuts once I get going, but until I get there, I have real problems with retaining heat. I found some gloves I like, but they’re in the other room and it’s not snowing yet. 😉 Will post when I play with them more. For races, however, when I know that I’m going to toss gloves, I use those little one-sized-fits-all knit gloves that usually go for a dollar a pair. Since most toss clothes get donated, I like that they can be washed. If you decide to use them, make sure that you roll the gloves before you toss them. I did just hand them to someone on the side of the road of the Bay To Breakers, but that’s just me.
