Gloves and Compression Sleeves (Read 515 times)

    This may be a dumb question, but here goes. I have watched some of the marathons on TV this weekend. I have seen many people wearing gloves and compression sleeves. What is the benefit of this? Blood flow? Warmth? Both? DB

      It's for warmth and the ability to shed them easily if they get too warm. A couple of guys wore long sleeve technical shirts under their tops, but if you go that route you don't have the option of ditching the sleeves if it gets too hot...at least not easily.

        I guess I am just dumb or something. I just tough it out until it warms up after a couple of miles. DB

          Ha! Either that or you don't have sponsors giving you all kinds of funky free gear to try out.
