Hi there other outdoor runners! I realize I am not a beginner here but wanted to check in anyways because I just love running so much and other runners are just so awesome. I love to share running stuff!

So here's what I bundle up with (my last cold run was 9 degrees out...brrrr):

winter running tights, with dual layer track pants over them, two pairs of socks, a long sleeve shirt, Nike jacket and sometimes a sweater over that which I often shed after about two miles when I get sufficiently warmed up, and two pairs of gloves or one pair gloves covered with a pair of socks or mittens (no mittens this year so I am using socks! Lol). I have a beanie-type cap for my head but that's about all it needs. I am looking into a bandana for my face to help keep the air warm before it reaches my lungs...ouch the burn! Lol.

That's it! I am weird, I love winter running the most for being outside - of course I live in the desert so cooler runs are fun for me. I hate running in the heat!!! Lol. My summer mileage per MONTH (my all time low) was like 18 miles lol. (normally I peak around 100-130 miles per month). I DID not want to get out there and the TM bores me to tears now...lol. Granted I have one, its just gathering dust hehe.

Sounds like you keep pretty warm. I have great admiration for anyone who can even going outside in that kind of weather.

WOW! Way to go on your SUPER CHILLY run!! So proud of you!! Glad that you decided to post. I will have to look into some tights. I'm running on the treadmill right now because I'm too chicken to run outside. LOL

Hey! So this is my first post with this team- I just joined SP last week. I am not entirely new to running, but I am definitely new to running consistently! I am so motivated right now, so rather then breaking my streak, I decided it was time to invest in the right winter running gear so I could keep going. This is what I wear and it totally works.(I am a Florida girl who now survives winters in the Midwest, and my run this morning was in the middle of a snow storm, on hills, wind chill below zero!!)

*3 top layers- a long sleeve shirt made with wicking material, a long sleeve zip up also with wicking material, and a second zip up with more of a fleece lining and a high neck.
*2 bottom layers- running tights and fleece pants
*a fleece scarf, gloves, wool socks, and an ear band- I wrap the scarf so it covers my mouth and nose to start, then loosen it by the end of the run because it starts to get warmer.

My top jacket has deep pockets and I bring chapstick and a tissue which save my life on any run longer then 2 miles- I can't keep going if I feel uncomfortable!

How about some ideas for those cold winter runs?
