TIPS FOR RUNNING IN FRIGID TEMPERATURES

As temperatures consistently decline, it becomes imperative to adjust your gear for coldweather running. Begin with a base layer crafted from moisture-wicking material, snugly fitting close to your body. Layering is key, and your clothing choices should be contingent on the prevailing conditions. Aim to dress for temperatures approximately 20 degrees warmer than the actual reading to prevent overheating and having to remove layers and tying them around your waist. Personally, I opt for a lightweight top with a zipper, allowing me to modulate my comfort, similar to a thermostat, throughout my run. In more frigid or damp conditions, I typically add a jacket for an additional layer of insulation.


Recognizing that a significant portion of our body heat escapes through the extremities, focus on a wool blend material for socks, gloves, and hats. Additionally, protect your exposed skin from the dual threats of cold and sun by applying a moisturizer that doubles as a sunscreen. This multifaceted approach ensures not only warmth and protection but also a more favorable running experience in the face of colder temperatures
