As a runner you very likely peeked out your window today to see how much it snowed overnight. Your first thought might have been how bad will the traffic be? But your second thought was probably how will the weather affect my run?
Of course many of you may have given up on that idea and are planning to head to the gym after work, but for those hardy souls that want to experience the winter wonderland here are some tips for running outdoors and staying safe at the same time.
Dress appropriately for the Weather
Although we’re unlikely to have weather in the 20s if it’s snowing you know it’s going to be at least 32 degrees outside. While you’ll warm up and get hotter the longer you run, you’ll still want to avoid shorts to prevent hypothermia. At the same time you’ll need to avoid bundling up too much so you won’t get overheated. It’s important to strike the right balance by wearing clothes that will keep you warm enough and wick away moisture from your body at the same time.
