Winter Running Gear for your Winter Run.
It’s here again! Maybe not as bad in the Northeast as it is in the Midwest but it is still freezing and when the temperatures drop that means its time to dig out the heavy duty winter running gear. It’s all about the right gear and the right layers. Footwear is important too especially when its icy. Let’s dive in and take a peek at some of my favorite winter running gear!
Kidding. Not kidding. Don’t go out when the temperatures are dangerous, it’s just not a good idea to risk getting frostbite.
This is easily one of my favorite pieces of winter running apparel. When cold weather hits you often need more than just leggings to stay warm. If you are like me then your rear end can get extra chilly so having the Wonder Wool Skirt is the perfect answer. Here is the product description from Skirt Sports, “ultra-soft, wool-blend skirt adds extra warmth along with the perfect amount of booty-coverage. Full-length, built-in tights.” The Wonder Wool Skirt currently comes in black, Cosmo Pink and True Blue. The Skirt keeps your bum warm and makes you look cute too!

I have an older version of this jacket without the hood that I just love. The perfect combination of Thermoball (primaloft) and stretch fabric. This jacket moves with you when you are winter running and when the cold weather hits. The addition of a hood is the perfect thing for when the wind starts whipping.
I like to layer up with Ski socks when the temperatures dip. You can’t beat wool and wearing tall ski socks gives you an extra layer of warmth over your calves. Darn Tough Ski Socks come in several different styles including lightweight and padded. They also have fun designs in case you want to pull them on over your running tights.
Keep the heat in! Your head acts like a chimney so covering it up will help your body to retain the heat that it needs to stay warm. Headsweats has Pom beanies and the more traditional beanie to add to your winter running gear collection.

These are my go to for winter trail running. The spikes are a bit overkill, not so comfortable, if you are running on an icy road surface so instead you could try Kahtoola NanoSpikes (less intense) but they are perfect for winter trail running and will ensure that you stay upright! I never have trouble with these falling off due to the rubber that fits over your shoe.
I could go on about what you might need for winter running gear but this list definitely gives you a pretty good start! Dressing like an onion is definitely part of the strategy for dressing for winter running. Layers are key and you need to make sure that what you choose does a good job of wicking away moisture because even when the temperatures dip you will still sweat.
