Baby, it’s effing cold outside. Like, winter — in full effect — cold. But that doesn’t mean we’re not out there running. Oh, no. We’ve just had to gear up properly for the colder temps. And thankfully, due to our ongoing ambassador role with Brooks Running (our product reviews are totally our honest opinions though!), we have been decked out in winter running essentials that perform well and look cute. So say hello to three Brooks Running items that are keeping our winter runs toasty warm! Oh, and you can win them …
3 Winter Running Essentials From Brooks Running
1. Seamless Arm Warmers. If you haven’t jumped on the whole arm-warmers bandwagon yet, it’s time to try ‘em! They. Are. Awesome. Light, comfy and warm, Brooks Running’s Seamless Arm Warmers are fabulous to put on at the start of a run, and then as you warm up, you can just push them down and, hey, free arms! These are seamless, too, so no chafing, and they’re snug but don’t cut off your circulation. Not to mention that they’re super soft!
2. Pulse Lite Glove II. If we had three words to describe this running glove, we’d pick: lightweight, breathable and high-tech. But seeing that we can use as many words as we want (yay!), we’ll go on to tell you that this slightly fitted glove is great for training or race day, has that cool retroreflectiveness we keep telling you about and has a finger pad that allows you to work your cellie. Oh, and they’re cute and soft — and only $25. Boom.
3. Heater Hog Beanie. Hog all the heat with this simple yet cute beanie that’s super soft and has special fabric that pulls moisture away from your skin while also generating heat back to your body. It’s light, but keeps you oh-so-warm. Totally worth the $22 price tag.
