Winter Running Clothing Guide

Here in Chicago we've had some cold days, but Sunday night we got our first real snowfall of the season.  Yesterday I headed out for a breezy, chilly run in the fresh snow.  I overdressed slightly but was still comfortable...

On my run I remembered a great layering guide that Kelly the Culinarian had shared on Facebook:

The Runner's Soul Winter Layering Guide

I hate it when my fingers and toes are cold so I wore my running gloves covered with mittens and wool socks (I love my DarnTough running socks!) and running shoes.  Overkill on the hands, but I prefer my hands too warm rather than cold.  Unfortunately running through the snow left my feet wet and a little cold...I'm thinking it may be time to invest in winter running shoes.

What kind of shoes do you wear to run in the snow and cold?

  1. Feet are definitely the toughest - I usually wear my Brooks Cascadias for winter running, byt my TrekStas are the ultimate tanks when needed.

  2. I'm not much of a snow runner :-) BUT I will say the first time I purchased wool socks, my life changed for the better.
