About Me

My photo
I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from our family, school, office and the community, we use running to give back..

My fave cuz, Virlita, arrived from the USA with her mom last week, and she wasted no time in showing me her pasalubong – a white Zoot Ultra Ice Run Tee.  All I can say is "Hallelujah!"
Zoot Ultra Ice Run Tee

Ever since I got to experience the power of the cooling technology called Icefil with my usage of the Zoot Icefil Arm Coolers at Bataan Death March 102-km ultra three months ago, I have been looking to acquire the running shirt version.  I visited the Zoot website and it told me the features of this special shirt.  I quote verbatim:  

Fast and breathable, the men's Zoot Ultra ICE Run Tee beats the heat by responding to elevated skin temperatures with a cooling technology called Icefil®. ULTRAcell AC with Icefil® combines Xylitol and thermal radiation nano technology, reducing skin temperature up to 5.4ºF/3ºC. The added UPF 50+ protection and anti-odor properties make this our premier run top.

  • Size: S, M, L, XL
  • Color: Black, White
  • Fabric:
    • ULTRAcell AC with Icefil® combines Xylitol and thermal radiation nano technology, reducing skin temperature up to 5.4ºF/3ºC
    • 30+ UPF sun protection ULTRAmesh is strategically zoned to improve ventilation and comfort
    • UPF 50+ sun protection
    • Flatlock construction ensures next-to-skin comfort
    • Raglan sleeve construction allows for full range of motion
    • Reflective logos for safety
    • 27" (68.55 cm) body length

Unfortunately, the Zoot Ultra Ice Run Tee is not yet available in any of the local running stores (ARC, Riovanna, Runnr, Secondwind).  So when my first cousin Virlita called mid-May to ask me what pasalubong I like, kinapalan ko na mukha ko, and I told her to get me this miracle worker of a running shirt. 

With its cooling qualities , I am very much excited to use this shirt for my heat training runs as I prepare for my upcoming ultramarathon adventures.  Imagine reducing skin temperature up to 5 degrees Fahrenheit.  

An added bonus is another pasalubong from fave cuz, a   Starter long-sleeve performance tee .  This shirt has both Dri-Star wicking technology and Star-Fit stretch fabric.  It looks promising.

Maraming maraming salamat pinsan.
