We've had some extreme cold here in WA as well and I pulled out my "turtle fur" that I use for skiing. I warmed up everywhere except my neck and chin so it was perfect!

Also if you go to www.runnersworld.com under gear they have a what to wear calculator - someone suggested it to me a few weeks back - it works great.

Good luck!

I started out in the cold this morning, then turned south into the sun - hot! Then back in the shade, and ended up sunny. I kept rolling my sleeves up and down!

Allow for a much longer warm-up, not only for your breathing but your muscles, too! In due time, you will adjust to the colder temps when running and always dress as though it is 20 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature. Best of luck!

HAPPY RUNNING!
Nancy

Have you tried a gaiter? I've never run with one but it might work.

In through your nose and out through your mouth. Too many people breath straight through their mouths this can irritate your lungs but the other way decreases inflammation of the bronchioles. Also, layer your clothing you don't want to be too warm either.

Happy Sunday everyone. I have a question for those of you that live in colder regions. It's been in the high 30s to low 40s here in San Diego County this week when I run. It is really hard to breathe! I guess this is something I will get used to, but is there anyway to help overcome it faster?
