Sometimes I feel like the photo above.

But as they say:

So these items are what gets me through the winter:

  • Wool socksSmartWool are my favorites. If I wear capris, I wear the SmartWool compression sleeves to stay warm.
  • Warm Hat and gloves  – any brand will do – I often wear Under Armour.


  • Light Jacket with layers – I hate to get over heated. I’m a fan of Target running clothes (C9 brand).


  • Running skirt with tights – the tights keep me warm enough and the skirt adds an extra layer – Skirt Sports is my preferred brand.


  • YakTrax if it is very snowy.  They keep you from slipping and sliding.

Happy Running! And you?  What is your favorite winter running gear? Please share…

  1. You are definitely never all bundled up. Whereas I, in the winter, feel like I should tack on a sign on my butt saying “objects appear larger in the winter”, LOL. I almost never regret being bundled up in winter, though.


  2. I like a vest, along with a long-sleeved top, for most of my colder runs. The body part that bothers me the most with being cold are my hands, though – I will wear two pairs of gloves to help with that. But like you, I hate to get overheated while I run, so I’d rather start out a little cold because I know I’ll warm up.


  3. I hate the cold. I also hate getting super bundled up to run outside. Good thing I live where it doesn’t ever get colder than the 30s, so winter running isn’t all that bad for me. 🙂
