RE: The elites clothing choices in Boston perplexed me
I bought a light Nike windbreaker / no inner layer - at Macy’s on Sunday night.
Other than that, I stuck to my planned running outfit: compression shorts and calf sleeves, a tight tank, and throwaway/no gloves.
I ditched the gloves by mile 2, but kept that jacket on all the way past Heartbreak. It was a tight fitted Medium (ie, I’m a 3:00 hobby jogger, not a rail-thin ex-athlete) and I tied it around my waist going into Brookline.
I can see the appeal of keeping a jacket on the whole way, but absolutely a loose layer would be an awful choice in that wind, and anything heavier than a windbreaker would’ve been miserable.
