It’s almost summer — temperatures are rising and I finally have motivation to go for a run outside because it’s not below freezing. But summertime also means it’s time for the blazing sun to beat down on you, which can be your worst nightmare during an outdoor run if you’re not properly protected.
Before I knew how to properly protect myself from the sun during a run, I used to come home burnt to a crisp and covered in weird tan lines. So, I made a few investments to up my summer-run game: a sweat-wicking hat, killer sunglasses, and UPF workout shirts. What is UPF you ask? UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor aka SPF for your clothes. UPF clothing provides both UVA and UVB protection meaning you’ll keep the sun’s harmful rays off your back while you get your workout on. So if you plan to take your workout outdoors this summer, protect your skin, keep cool, and invest in one of these shirts.
