Not sure I have advice about dealing with snow, but when it is cold, temperature management is key. Layer your clothing.
Items like arm warmers and a beanie are great, as you can whip them off and shove them in your pocket without having stop as you begin to warm up from running.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Find a park or paved trail that's cleared so you can push the stroller. You can't safely navigate unplowed sidewalks with a stroller. My other suggestion is to run in the street, which you can do when you are running solo.
I put hex head screws in my shoes for better traction in snow.

So I am fairly new to running. I started back in October and try to run 3-4 times a week. I run about 3 miles each time. My problem is now I am no longer running because I am bored. I have been running on the treadmill, trying intervals, and now I am bored!! I walk so I can read a magazine or something. I am dying to get outside, but my fear is falling, especially with all the snow we've gotten. Any advice for running in the cold weather/snow (people do not shovel their walks around here!!) and any attire you might advise, especially running shoe? Also I will be running with my daughter, so I will be pushing a jogging stroller!!
