C9 Jacket and Nike Running Gloves
So I was at Target a couple of weeks ago and noticed a C9 water-proof jacket in neon purple. I liked it... :D but did not want to pay full price for it so I walked away. Luckily a few weeks later I came back to Target to find the jacket on sale and it was the last one in my size. I got it in the neon purple which is bright...haha. So I took it as a sign that I should buy the jacket. I took it out recently on a long run which I started very early in the morning. I have trouble running when my core is not warm. This jacket kept me really warm. I think it was too much later on during my long run but it was nice in the earlier part.
I also picked up a pair of Nike running gloves. The pair I have is made of fleece and is a little more heavy duty then the lite running gloves. It isn't for running where it is very cold but it does the job in 40-50 degrees weather. Probably too thick if it is any warmer than that. It takes me a long time to warm up when I start to run which is why I need this stuff and I don't like the cold. Normal people can probably use this stuff for very cold runs but I put these on at the slightest cold. Each glove also has these small pockets where the palm area is that can hold 1 key each.
I like these two items because they are well made. Since I sweat in them all the time, I wash them alot and they come out of the wash looking like new.
