When I ran the Bolder Boulder back in May, I left with several souvenir items, one that actually ended up in my hand for the majority of the 10k run. I do hate having to wear layers and carry the layers I peel off, but I am glad that I didn’t give into my thoughts of “ditch this shirt” with this one. This particular top happens to be my most favorite long sleeve running top.
When I bought my shirt I only bought one because who needs more than one certain type of a running shirt…I should’ve given it a little more thought because, hello, I need more than one. I’m not in the business of wearing stinky clothes to go running in even if I’m just going to stink them up some more and I’m also not in the business of doing laundry every day in the name of one shirt. Yes, there are times when I am environmentally friendly.
And thus, on this 23rd day of remaining Christmas shopping, I present to you, the Adidas Response Long Sleeve Half-Zip Tee. A.K.A. Courtney’s most favoritest long sleeve running top.
It’s made with their climalite fabric which really means nothing to me other than the fact that it keeps me dry AND! very important and, it doesn’t hold in the stench after washing it as some moisture wicking shirts have been known to do.
Plus, for me, it’s enough shirt to keep me warm when I’m running in the cold weather, well, what I consider cold. Some people up north, (ahem, Nancy) would consider the 30-40F range a walk in the park but for us peeps that were raised in the southern part of the US it’s cold.
For the unknown family member that drew my name for Christmas, I know you’re out there. I wear a size medium and I’d like it in navy blue with the rave yellow stripes. You can buy it on Adidas.com.
