can I. It doesn't matter that she's
superwoman and I'm just your average
run of the mill runner.
Arm warmers are great because if the temperature is a bit cool but you feel you might be too warm in long sleeves, just put on a short sleeve shirt or a tank top and slap on the arm warmers. The arm warmers cover the majority of your arm. They are light-weight, moisture-wicking, and warm. If the temperature warms up and/or you are running in direct sunlight and feel a bit warm, just roll them down. Easy! If you wore long sleeves and got warm it’s a pain to have to roll the sleeves up and get them to stay up. If you are even able to roll them up. I have some long sleeved tech shirts that are form fighting and I can’t roll those suckers up. Plus, if you do roll up your sleeves you risk stretching them out. Nobody wants that.
So yes, after one use of my arm warmers I’m a convert. I love them! I work them with short sleeves and it was perfect. Running in direct sunlight I could tell I was getting a bit warm but not overly so. However soon I was back in the woods and surrounded my trees and the temperature dropped and I was comfortable again.
