I live in a climate where temperatures máy rise to 95 Fahrenheit during Summer, and in winter they may drop to -4 Fahrenheit. So I figure there’s no necessity for me to wear something on my head during my runs. But even though there’s no necessity, I’ve still pondered the question: ‘To wear a cap/hat, or nót to wear a cap/hat’.
Because a cap may look cute on me! Especially now that my hair is long enough to pull into a pony tail. I’ve always wanted one of those caps you can pull a ponytail through at the back.
My eldest son went through a brief cap-phase, and I once borrowed his cap when it was raining outside. But I missed the feeling of the wind blowing through my hair. I even missed getting my hair dripping wet. Wearing anything on my head during a run, makes me feel all hot and bothered. I miss the freedom of running bareheaded.
On craigdonmountainsports.com they have a cap on offer that does sound great. Especially because it is ‘Fast-wicking, quick drying and highly breathable’. Those are absolute musts I think for runners.
Where do you stand as a runner on the cap thing? Do you run bareheaded or do you wear something on your head?
