New from Oiselle: The 7 Layer Burrito Suit

Marathoners! Fret no more about what to wear on race day. With Oiselle’s all-new 7-Layer Burrito Suit, your race day apparel decision making is over. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

LAYER 1. Don’t worry about finding a sacrificial garment in your drawer to dispose of in the first mile. With the 7-Layer Burrito Suit, you will receive your very own ill-fitting, donation-pile-quality garment ready to rock your run.

LAYER 2. The arm warmers. Once Layer 1 comes off, Layer 2 says, “Watch out, I’m here to pass children, grand parents, baby joggers and absolutely everyone in a cotton t-shirt.”

LAYER 3. In addition to shielding your eyes from rain and sun, hats reduce the likelihood of every race pic being deemed “bad-hair-day-wild.”

LAYER 4. Preferably, your base layer should communicate your club affiliation, your sense of style or your politically incorrect humor.

LAYER 5. Shorts...these babies should have the carrying capabilities of a hobo bag with the silhouette of a runway model. And please, sweat marks should be the least of your worries. As our friend Emily says, “All sweat is good sweat.”

LAYER 6. If you’ve been training for a Spring marathon, consider wearing tights. Neither you or your fellow racers may be ready to see your legs.

LAYER 7. Compression socks! Because only a garment this ugly could actually have functional benefits.

So get out there girlfriends and peel the burrito! Because when all is said and run -- it’s BFF TIME!
