A few Friday nights ago, snow fell for the first time up here in Michigan, which made for a very chilly and sloppy (and awesome) Saturday morning run. I remember digging through my gear that night before, noting that I was low on cold weather running outfits. So I've been keeping my eye out for sweet deals on workout clothes that will keep me warm through the Winter. Of course, I found stuff at Kohl's.
Fleece-lined leggings, a long-sleeve workout tee and a fleece top that I can't find online:
you can see it here). My only complaint about it (which is not really a complaint): It doesn't have a hood so I'll be grateful for the hood on this FILA SPORT fleece.
I wear some cheap black knit gloves, too.
But my favorite cold-weather running accessory is this fleece neck warmer that I got as a gift a few years ago:
At first, I didn't think I'd use it very much, but it's literally the best thing ever. It's a scarf and a face protector all in one. And it's cute, so...bonus points. And since we're talking about cold-weather running accessories now, I feel like I have to mention my Yaktrax.
Yaktrax are a must-have for any runner that wants to keep running outside in the winter.
Other things I can't go running without, even in the Winter: My Garmin Forerunner 15 and my Mizuno running shoes. Currently rotating between Wave Rider 18s and Enigma 5s. Oh, and lip gloss. I always run with lip gloss in the Winter because I hate chapped lips.
That's just the worst.
Tomorrow, I'm leading a 7:00AM run. No snow is expected to fall tonight, so I'll be a flash of green running around with a bunch of other fun runners. To see what my blog friends are wearing these days, check out the #fitnfashionable linkup.
Oh, and if you find any running outfits for cold weather on sale, let a girl know.
Question: Do you prefer running in cold weather, or is warm weather your thing? Tell me why!
