I personally wear sweats and a tee shirt with a sweat shirt over it so I can take off the sweat shirt if I get too warm. I also wear gloves, hat and scarf when it's that cold, but it has to be in the twenties or low thirties for me to get all decked out in that. I have always heard you don't want your joints getting cold in those bitter temps because it could lead to injury easier, I also find it more comfortable. The guy running in shorts and tee shirt I am assuming was running a long distance or just had a higher body tempreture. I see runners out (females too) in shorts and a sweat shirt alot of times when it's in the twenties. I guess It depends on your comfort zone and is just a matter of finding it.
I went out for a small jog this morning and BOOM!... the crisp, cold air hits my cheeks and I get back in. I'm used to bundling up when it's cold outside, like a coat, gloves, scarf, but am not used to dressing appropriately for jogging outside. My question is...
When it's very cold, rainy or snow outside, what do you wear?
I saw a man run past me wearing only a shirt and shorts this morning, but I am thinking of doing a 5K in January (I live in PA) and I know it will either be very cold outside with a chance of snow. I don't know if I should be wearing long johns underneath when running!
