Running can be hard no matter the weather. But when it is cold, it seems to get a bit harder. You focus on staying warm instead of just running. Listed below are clothing essentials that will make running in winter much warmer and easier! You can also see what to wear with the temperature guide!
Runner's world came out with the best guide on what to wear for each temperature.
Invest in good quality tights/leggings. You will be so thankful you did. You may think you can get away with shorts, but once that cold wind hits your legs, you will be wishing they were covered. You don't have to spend a lot of money for good leggings. There is a big price range out there, so pick what is your budget!
2. Long sleeve shirts
About 80% of the time you spend running in the cold, you will end up only wearing a long sleeve shirt. You will ditch the jacket and vest a couple miles in. It is always smart to have a handful of good long sleeve, cold gear, running shirts in your drawer.
For really cold days, it is nice have that extra layer. A good jacket or vest can make a cold run perfect.

4. Gloves & Beanies
If your head and hands are warm, you will be warm!
P.S. I would love hear what your favorite cold gear is? What is something you cannot live without, when the temps turn cold?
