cold weather running gear

now that college football is over it’s time to get my ass off the couch and start running again.  running on the treadmill is great, but you can’t beat the great outdoors – even when it’s freezing outside.  here’s what you’ll need to stay warm running this winter:

new balance windblocker jacket: it’s windproof, waterproof, and made with lightning dry fabric that will help wick away the moisture.

under armour cold gear compression shirt: like long underwear but tighter and warmer.

nike wool running hat: you’ll need something to cover your head and ears like this dri-fit wool running hat from nike.

drymax cold weather running socks: drymax are my favorite running socks.  their cold weather socks have a dual layer moisture removal system that instantly moves moisture from the skin.

under armour compression leggings: the best protection for your legs in cold weather.  i’ll usually throw on a pair of shorts over them, so no one has to look at my junk.

nike lightweight running gloves: you can’t forget about your hands when running in cold weather.  plus, ladies don’t like men with chaffed hands.

asics gt-2160 running shoes: my new favorite running shoes.  they’re the perfect mix of stability and comfort.

now all you’ve got to do is find the time to get started.  good luck!

    Any idea if the gloves would hold up to lifting? Cold pullup bars, kettlebells and bars are a bit brutal in the hands. Still need to find a not constrictive solution

    I would not use them for lifting. They have very little grip.
