Running Shirts to Keep You Cool

Shirts for Warm Weather
Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner here in the US. And where I live, it is already starting to get warm, so we need to start thinking about what clothes will help us stay cool when we are running.

What about Cotton?
If you normally just throw on a cotton t-shirt and go for a run, then you may know that cotton is really not make an ideal shirt to wear in warm weather. As you sweat, the cotton absorbs all of the moisture. the moisture sticks to your body and weighs you down. In addition, when the sweat is not able to evaporate, it cannot cool you down.

Wicking Materials Are Ideal
What you need is a material that allows the sweat and moisture to wick away form your body. These materials can do a good job of keeping you cool and light while you run. Below are a few options for running shirts that have this kind of wicking material in them.  The photos link to the amazon storeplace if you are interested in getting yourself a shirt like this.
