Review & Giveaway: Run Happy Hoody

As winter approaches, I don't give up my outdoor runs. On the contrary, I love the cooler temperatures. Today was a perfect 40 degrees for my long run. I was perfectly comfortable during the run; however, the rest of the day, I get a slight chill and have a hard time getting warm. I crave a snuggly sweatshirt, but can't stand the bulk.  I have now found the perfect apparel to sport post-run... a thermal hoody from Milestones Sport Jewelry and Apparel!

Obviously the most appealing aspect about this hoody is the girlie pink color and the cute saying across the front... RUN HAPPY!  I'm positive it was designed with me in mind...

My first impression of the hoody was how soft the fabric was. It's the kind of shirt that you want to snuggle in on a cold winter afternoon. The fabric is a 60/40 polyester/cotton blend, so there is also a lot of stretch. The waffle texture reminds me of a thermal underwear, but softer, way softer.  I think the sizing is about right, as compared to what I wear in other clothes. If you're borderline on sizing, I would suggest ordering up.  In the photos above, I am wearing a size large.

Milestones Sport has been a great supporter of my Cupcake Classic virtual race over the years. This past year, she brought in a special Pandora bead (here) just for us Cupcake runners! The jewelry collection is really outstanding at Milestones... it's impossible not to find something you like.
