Where does the President keep his armies?

In his sleevies!
Sorry, I had to do that–it was my twin sister Eileen’s favorite joke as a kid, and I have sleeves on the brain, thanks to my product test of the week: Asics arm warmers. I took them out for a test run in the crisp fall air last Wednesday, one of the chilliest days we’ve had all year.
My report: The soft-knit sleeves are a lifesaver for runners (like me) who want to regulate their body temperature without dealing with annoying extra layers. I don’t know about you guys, but I hate, hate, hate running in long sleeve shirts. I heat up super quickly and the last thing I want to do is shed shirts mid-run, try to tie something around my waist or double up when it’s not all that cold out. No thanks.
The arm warmers are awesome! And as an added bonus, I felt pretty darn cool. If you’ve ever watched the marathon, the elites rock these arm warmers, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for little old me. Bonus: They cost about 8 bucks. So worth it.
