Team MPI Tuesday Tip: Running Hats
Do running hats really keep you cooler?
Running hats--do they really help you stay cool when running in hot and humid conditions? Some people wear running hats religiously, while others seem to prefer skipping hot-weather headwear. But what does the research tell us? Do hats really help us regulate our temperature when running in the heat?
Yes, running hats can keep you cooler
Running hats draw perspiration away from your head. That evaporating sweat has a cooling effect. Choose a running hat that is made with lightweight fabric that allows pleanty of airflow.
Running hats are great for runners with longer hair
Runners with longer hair know the value of keeping hair out of the face and away from the neck and shoulders. Surprisingly, hair can lock in heat around your shoulders and neck. Pulling your hair up and away (like with a running hat with a ponytail hole), helps keep you cooler and improves airflow around your face.
Running hats offer protection from the elements
Protecting your face and scalp from the sun and keeping the sun and rain out of your eyes makes running more comfortable and enjoyable. It also offers protection against the sun's harmful rays. Running hats can also protect you from wind and dust in less-than-ideal conditions (and when conditions change suddenly).
Psychological benefits of how you think you look
Sports psychologists have repeatedly shown that how you think you look plays a huge role in overall performance. The saying, "feel fast, look fast, go fast" actually has some truth to it! "Enclothed cognition" means what we wear and how we perceive that we look matters. Looking and feeling good boosts your confidence, which can improve your performance.
Overall, wearing a running hat can protect you from the elements and harmful UV rays, keep you comfortable, and even boost your confidence. What's not to love!?
