What Run Oregon is Wearing: Distance Sweatshirt from Brooks

It hasn’t exactly been sweater weather the past few weeks, but we all know it’s coming.

It always comes.

And now I’m thrilled that I have the Men’s Distance Sweatshirt in my arsenal. I took this over to the beach (when the temperatures were 30-40 degrees different from the valley) to brave the coastal winds – and this piece hardly left my body. It was heavy enough to keep me comfortable, yet not too heavy that I would overheat. I feel it’s an amazing sweatshirt that would do the job before AND after a race. The design is unique without being gaudy and the inside is ridiculously soft. I found the sleeves to be long enough as well, something that I continually struggle with in sweatshirts.

Overall, I love the Distance Sweatshirt. They also have a hoody version if that’s more your style. It may not be a full-on running piece, but I anticipate that it will get more wear this Fall and next Spring than any of the other item in my closet. Highly recommended.
