I use a system of head bands placed in various ways. Last winter, I went to the Running Room (a Canadian running store), and bought a runners balaclava. It works great! If you aren't from Canada, try a running or sport store in your area.

Pixie, a scarf, wrapped loosely around your neck works too. I too do not like a turtleneck when I run so I use a scarf that I can loosen or tighten. The only problem with it is that it gets wet from the moisture in my breathe. No biggie, I just keep turning it. If I get plenty warm, I take the scarf off and tie it around my waist to get it home.


Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Hi, I've been running for about 6 months now, and the cold is wreaking havoc on my endurance. The skin chill is fine, but it's the breathing the cold air that gets to me. I've tried turtleneck-type jackets, but the feeling of it against my throat makes me feel like I'm choking. Besides waiting to run when it's warmer (which doesn't really happen), any suggestions? Thanks!

I run. I may be slower than a herd of turtles wading through peanut butter, but I run.
