So you may have noticed we have a bit of snow up here on Cape Cod.
You know, just a bit.
It’s certainly made running outdoors challenging since it’s been near impossible for the town to keep up with clearing the roads and the path we run on. Jason and I have been able to get outside for runs a few times in the last couple of weeks and I will say that although the road conditions haven’t been great we’ve been well prepared with winter gear!
I know you’re not all buried in 5 feet of snow like we are in New England, so rather than bore you with all my favorite winter running gear (although I am in love with my new New Balance winter running jacket in the picture above!), I thought I’d share a fun little resource I often use before heading out the door in case you haven’t discovered it yet…
Introducing the Runner’s World “What to Wear” tool!
Seriously, I LOVE this thing!
It asks you a bunch of questions (gender, temperature, conditions, wind, time of day, run intensity and if you prefer to feel cool or warm) and BAM – it spits out exactly what it suggest you wear for your run!
I always use the “What to Wear” tool before races and find is especially handy around the change of seasons when I sort of forget what I wear when it gets warmer or cooler than I’m used to.
The only other thing I have been adding to my winter running attire this year are my YakTrax – man have we gotten our monies worth out of these things this year!
