Another vote for cheap stretchies. I bought a bunch from Old Navy last year when they went on sale; I think I got the two pair sets for 69 cents each! Even not on sale they are very reasonable, and you can layer if a single pair is not warm enough. My experience is that I will find I warm up within a mile or two and won't want gloves anymore, so if I did decide not to hold on to them during a run I wouldn't stress over disposing of them since they were so cheap!

My husband bought me a pair of Under Armour gloves last year. They are light enough to run with but keep my hands nice and warm.

I do like the idea of stretchy gloves for nose running. That happens to me all the time. :)

Thanks everyone! I'll try out some of these ideas until I find something that works.

Honestly, I just use the cheap stretchy ones. Anything heavier and I get too warm.

I just wear socks as mittens that way I can mop up a runny nose then throw them in the wash.

It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

buy mittens with the terry snot wipe. If it's really cold, stick an instant hand warmer in there and add a 2nd layer of the cheap stretchy gloves.

My hands get pretty darn sweaty in those that sometimes I have to take them off. I love 'em!

Haha, I just put on cheap gloves and make sure the sleeves of my fleece cover my hands. I have short limbs so this works for me

As it is getting chillier and I'm heading into my first winter as a runner my hands are getting cold. My ski gloves just seem too bulky and I bought some that were for running but they just aren't warm enough below 40. Any recommnedations for cozy gloves for running?

Thanks!
