Runners Who Wine Episode 3: Cold Weather Running Tips
No matter what way you break it down, the winter weather affects running. You need layers, sometimes lots of layers depending on how cold and where you live. Sometimes you might not dress warm enough, other times you might over dress and be steaming up by the end of the first mile. Winter running is cold and can be really confusing.
Thankfully, Nicole, my Wild Workout Wednesday and Runners Who Wine podcast co-host have you covered. I happen to live in literally the snowiest place on earth and Nicole lives in Austin, Texas which is rather temperate.
When I say I live in the snowiest place on earth, I am really not joking – Farmer’s Almanac even named it their TOP “Worst Winter Weather Cities” describing it as “cold, clammy and snowy from October through April”.
Just this year so far we have gotten over 157″ of snow. In fact, we had 66 HOURS of consecutive snow at the beginning of this month. Yep, snow and I are very well acquainted.
We get little sun, the temps are always freezing and feet of snow are the norm. I don’t claim to be an expert at much, but driving in, shoveling and running in snow happens to be one thing I know more about than most.
You have to choose what you wear carefully, make sure your extremities are protected and be smart about what you wear on your feet. On the flip side, if you’re in a warmer climate like Nicole, there are other cold weather running issues to consider – all tips that we are breaking down in this episode of Runners Who Wine available now on iTunes and Soundcloud.
Pop open a bottle of vino, pour yourself a glass, tune in and warm up while we give you all the coolest tips on cold weather running!
