Hey, maybe we should check in when it starts getting cold and compare what's worked for us! I certainly would like to know how these suggestions work for you and promise to tell you all how they work for me!
Yeah, I don't usually wear them until September, either. But most people think that they're large headphones, not earmuffs, so you probably wouldn't get *too* many strange looks. You could always cross out "Swix" and write "iPod."
Hey! I have that problem too! Slight, chillier breeze and I am holding my ears trying to keep the cold out! It is so bad - makes me miserable!
I think I will try earmuffs myself when it starts getting chillier, however, it happens even when I walk with my husband. I end up trying to talk while holding my ears. I do usually listen to music when I am out alone but the headphones do nothing for me either.
Yeah, this is such an odd problem to have, isn't it?! I do usually run with at least one ipod earbud in my ear, but it doesn't seem to make a difference in terms of being worse or better. Maybe I'll have to try out those Swix earmuffs, Meredith. But not until at least the middle of September . . . any earlier is just kind of crazy! What a problem to have!

Sorry, I can't relate to this one at all. August in Kansas City is just a sauna - I've been getting up at 6am to try and run when it is in lower 70's but this morning it was upper 70's (the sauna part is constant and doesn't change with the temp) so I may have to up the alarm another 30 min. I don't have ear trouble in cold weather either.
Do you listen to music or anything when you run? My headphones cover my ears - that might help alleviate the cold problem.

That happens to me whenever I'm cold and running, too. I've got a pair of Swix earmuffs left over from when I was a cross-country skier in HS--they're really thin and light and won't overheat the rest of your head. If you do a google search for "Swix earmuffs" you'll see what they're like.

Wow, That is a realy odd thing. I can't say that I have ever had that feeling. I run with headphones a lot though... You could try earplugs? but make sure they are not in tight so you can still hear things.

Ok, I know this is an odd question to ask in August, but do any of you ever have problems with your inner ears getting really cold during a run? I'm just picking up running for the first time since college, but I remember I had this same problem back then. If there is even the slightest chill in the air when I run my inner ear gets achingly cold. Aside from wearing earmuffs in August, is there anything I can do about this?!
