Thanks for all the helpful information! I will be sure to get my layers and check the weather before I head out!

Layers, layers and more layers. I have found that under armour tights make a great base layer on my legs, with heavier winter pants. I some that are lightly fleece lined. Compression socks, under armour base layer with another under arrmour turtle neck and a light weight wind breaker for days that are between 0-20F (-5ish C). I also wear gloves but usually take them off part way through the run. I wear ear "band" with a baseball hat unless its really windy, then I wear a winter hat (yes, it has a pom-pom). Yak trax are great for icy roads but I take them off when I am on pavement as they become more like skates! Have fun:) I love winter running!!

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

I have Under Armour cold weather leggings and shirt. I wear short sleeve tech shirts under a long sleeve cold weather shirt, I like the hoodies that have finger holes in the sleeves. Ear warmers are great as well, and I will wear yoga pants over the leggings. Really keeps you warm and i am usually sweaty when I finish.

All really good advice given in the post below. If you have snowy conditions you may also want to wear Yak Trax on your shoes for added traction. :-) (Although I know NOTHING about this personally as I live in Southern California and it never snows here! LOL)

Layers. No cotton next to your body (I prefer no cotton at all). I would also recommned a running hat or headband to go over your ears, definitely some gloves. I've learned that I always start out cold but am overdressed by the end. For me personally I have a problem with my calves and achilles tendon loosening up in the cold weather so I prefer compression socks also.

I am new to running, and would possibly want to continue to run for at least a little while longer this fall and into winter. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where it can get pretty cold. Does anyone have any tips on how to dress for the cold, but also for running??
