Run: Sun Blocker LS
As you know, I was so excited to get into lulu and get this UBF gem of a running top. Only when I got to the store I found out that the smallest size the top is made in is a 4. I tried it on and it was big. The sales associates were great and told me I could get it hemmed and the sleeve length shortened. The only problem with loosing the sleeve length would mean I was also going to loose my thumb holes. The other problem was the waist was about 2 inches bigger than mine. I decided to go ahead with it anyways. I don’t mind that the top is a bit bigger and if I want it altered in any way- I could bring my top to lulu at anytime and get my free alterations.
So, I took my new white Sun Blocker out for a 10K spin today! I was loving the thumb holes so I decided I didn’t want to loose them. And I was really loving the sheer material. Whenever a breeze came along, I would cool right down! The anti-stink Chitosan finish was definitely needed today. I was getting worried that my sunscreen was getting washed off from the sweat I had and I was starting to smell. Luckily, I remembered that it was OK because I have the extra protection of my UBF shirt and my anti-stink Chitosan. Amazing! I’m keeping fresh and running without a worry!
Throughout my run I did end up rolling up my sleeves. I am starting to wonder if I should get them hemmed but- I will take it out for a few more spins before I decide. I really do wish that the Sun Blocker came in a size 2. The excess material can get annoying near my biceps and forearm. But for the extra sun protection, I can deal.
Overall it was a good run and a great top! I think my runs will start getting harder as I adjust to the sun’s rays getting hotter. There’s nothing like pushing yourself during your run so you can and feel great post-run!
