A new running craze is taking hold–arm warmers!  You don’t have to be an elite athlete anymore to wear them.  They keep your arms protected from not only the chill, but the UV rays.  They double as a snot rag (sorry…lack of a better term..tissue seems too demure) and can be easily moved up and down as the air flow requires (acting as a temperature regulator).  Here are some of my favorites…

What kind of arm warmer –wearer are you?

For the rocker runner: The Tatu arm warmer from Sugoi (pictured above-they look like art!).  Sugoi also has nice looking non-rocker Mid-Zero and Sub-Zero arm warmers in red and black.

For the happy runner: Moeben’s butterfly fleece sleeve or Defeet’s Daisys

For the funky types: Moeben has a few fun patterns including camo and a zebra stripe that offer UV protection.

For the sporty runner: Pearl izumi Garmin lightweight warmer or striped Pearl Izumi Therma Fleece.  I like these pink ones from the Sock Guy.  They are made from the same fabric as their soft dri-fit socks.

For those of us who like to wear basic black (everything): Nike has a nice simple pair and these Asics are the right price.

i’m more of a casual around-the-neighborhood runner… those high-tech fabrics aren’t really for me… i’m more into the knit arm warmers (which i can also wear with a dress or a short-sleeve top) like the ones @ http://www.threddies.com – it’s a nice compromise between form and function!
