Cold Weather Running


The running clothes run down:

Dry Max winter socks
Silk long underwear
Running tights
Wind pants

Long underwear top
Merino wool shirt
Jacket

Merino Wool Buff
Bala clava

1.50 Dollar Knit Gloves
28.00 Dollar Windbreaker Mittens

I waited until noon to run, wanting to get the warmest temperature of the day.



It was 14 degrees F when I started, 20 degrees when I finished my 6.9 miles around the block.

The fleece balaclava got too warm around mile one, which I planned for. I swapped it out for my merino wool Buff and my lower face mask.
I was over dressed for the weather. I have to say, my long underwear top-from Lands End-works! The two times I have worn it, I have been too hot. This might be the top for the Reverse Ring night in February. I was sweating on my climbs.

I'm so glad I got out there and tested gear today. My hands were too warm in my cheapo knit gloves and over priced Sugoi windbreaker mittens-but again, probably good gear for my February training runs.
