The Best Fall Running Top
I’ve always been a fan of running in insulated compression shirts (I’m pretty sure it’s a result of wearing them as a softball player in Washington and Maine). If I need more warmth, I just add another layer. That was until I tried Stonewear’s new Alpha Hoody.
This fall, the Alpha Hoody quickly became my go-to base layer. I tried it out on early morning runs. The fit is just right: it doesn’t ride up my hips while I’m running, it’s neither too tight or too loose on the chest and the rest of my torso, and the sleeves are long enough for me to use the thumb loops! I was concerned that the hood would be annoying while running, but it didn’t bother me at all–it just adds some extra warmth.
On top of the Alpha’s functionality, it’s also really cute. Since my wardrobe isn’t that big, it’s always nice when clothing can do double duty for working out and wearing around town. That versatility is going to make it a regular when packing for trips!
