6+ Chilly Miles in Plain Clothes Runner


Saturday's 6 miles was our coldest run we have had so far. Don't know the exact temperature but it was around 34 degrees with sunshine which made it not so bad. I was recently given the opportunity by Mike at Plain Clothes Runner to try out some products. (Since it was so cold I actually tried out everything at one time:) I was given a short sleeve Vneck wicking shirt, a long sleeve wicking shirt, a training jacket, a regular and a winter headband











I am not positive that my good words and opinions on these shirts and jacket will do them justice. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE ALL OF THE PRODUCTS I RECEIVED!!!! I am not one to wear fitted clothes not even for running. I have the "I'm fat" complex and do not feel comfortable in fitted clothing. So when I find clothing in a size Medium that I am comfy in, or a Small and still have plenty of room, I am one happy girl:) The wicking shirts have extremely soft fabric, it was so nice wearing it I really didn't want to change out of it when I got home. Another thing I found great about Plain Clothes Runner is their prices. The Vneck wicking shirt is only $20 and the long sleeve is $30 maybe close to or about the same as others but I LOVE the way these shirts fit me! Here is a little clip from their site:

Plain and simple. No expensive coordinates. No trendy, tight fitting outfits or prolonged preparation. Just casual, comfortable clothing that let’s you get up and go. Our “run wear – any wear” apparel is ideal for competition, everyday training and even out on the town.

Mike was also kind enough to send some items for my husband! Of course that made him happy, his first products to try out:) He also received the same long sleeve wicking shirt, a Rawlings Trainer fleece, and a toboggan hat



Mike made the right choices on items for Gerard to try out, he LOVES fleeces and now a breathable one that he can run in~ do I really need to say it~ he LOVES it:) I think the fabric on it is super soft, I know all fleece is soft but this is a smooth super soft! He also LOVES toboggan hats we have tons scattered around the house! As far as the long sleeve wicking shirt his reply"It ROCKS!" So I am guessing he totally enjoyed everything he tried out as well. Tonight we ran 4mi and I wore my long sleeve shirt again, another thing I learned that I like about it is the sleeves stay up when you push them up instead of coming back down while running. Another Plus for sure:)

So my bloggy friends there you have it. Plain Clothes Runner has some really awesome products at reasonable prices! I would really encourage you to head on over and get something for yourself or maybe someone on your Christmas list!

All the opinions above came straight from the hubs & I and were not paid for. We were given the clothing to review and not paid! However if Mike wanted to send us (me actually) a women's Rawlings runner jacket to review we would be happy to do so as well:))) Just sayin'

Thanks for the review. Been looking for some new gear that isn't laced with sponsors and event names.....
