As a regular runner, I find this article extremely important. Many crucial points are brought up. First, wear breathable clothing, pure cotton is nice but not practical. Wear cotton blends or technical fabrics. Wearing the right shoes is probably most important. A good bet would be to go to a specialty running store. Quite often, the workers in these stores are specially trained in shoe fitting. As for cold weather, my biggest problem is my hands; they get cold very easily. So, when I dress for running, I dress so that I'll be a bit cool when I start. But my hands? They have to be toasty warm from the get-go.
