𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝗶𝗲𝘀!! 👕 🔹 This thin long-sleeved sweatshirt will be the perfect thing to throw on when you head out for a run on a cool summer morning or evening. Just double knot it around your waist if you get warm! 🔹 Three possible colors so you’ll be surprised when you open your package. 🙀 🔹 Sizing is similar to our typical race shirts. We’re running low on some of the women’s sizes but the men’s cut is nearly identical in this case. Size one down (if you’re usually a women’s M, select men’s S) #nycrunsSubwayChallenge #subway #nyc #nycruns #winyourrace #challenge
