So I'm running in a half marathon tomorrow, and I can't decide what to wear. Help me!→
[More:] Usually I wear shorts and a tank for a half marathon, nbd. However, the forecast is for a temperature that I can go either way on -- it should be about 58 at race start time, 65 when I'm done. Ish. For a shorter race, I'd wear shorts and would be fine. But for a longer race, I have a couple more issues.
Pro: cooler, has a little pocket that I can stash energy gel
Con: have to slather thighs in bodyglide
Pro: no worrying about chafing
Con: no pocket, may get slightly too warm by the end of the race.
So it's pocket v chafing. I don't think temp is going to play too much of a role (although I will be heading to the subway at 5.30 am and it'll be a bit cooler then) What would you choose?
