i love running in the cold...20-30

i used to run when it snowed with my cross country team so it was never a big deal to me

get clothes that you feel comfortable in...i generally wear long running pants, a north face fleece, gloves and a hat

the weather doesnt bother me much, i refuse to run when it's hot lol

I live in Illinois, and I hate the cold and try not to run in it. The cold air kills my lungs, but other than that just bundle up.

You try you fail, you try you fail, the only ture failure is when you stop trying

It's my favorite time to run! I hate running in the summer when it makes me all hot and sweaty.

Try posting this over in Fitness... there's a lot of committed runners that frequent that board, and may not get down here to Motivation to see your question! I run in the cold, but I live in a warmer climate... "cold" here is generally 50 or 60!

I wish I could help you but with asthma and arthritis, I don't RUN during any season and avoid being out in the TOO COLD air at ALL times. Mostly I do indoor exercises - I belong to a fitness center. Good luck with your running - maybe you will get some answers - sorry I couldn't help.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I live in Co and in the mornings its about 20-30 degrees and I really want to learn to love running in the cold but I cant say I do at the moment. How do you stay motivated and warm on cold days? I have good workout gear I think the biggest thing I dont like is breathing in the air and if I wear a mask or face guard it gets soaked within 10 mins. Maybe I just not meant to be a winter runner but ideas would be awesome!
