I feel like such a baby writing to ask this question, but HOLY COW! I have a question!
We all know I’m no running expert…I’m consider myself still very new to many running experiences. And, well…I have a wardrobe question to ask all of you because INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.
I do most of my winter running indoors on a treadmill. I have to run in the wee hours of the morning and since I don’t have anyone to run with, it is safer to run at the gym each day. (In a gym where the temperature is quite nice for a morning run.) So knowing that I have a 5k on Thursday and a marathon relay event in two weeks (and these events just so happen to be outside*) and I have no idea what to wear.
And here is where I sound like a moron:
Yes, I live in (Northern) California and many (many!) of you consistently run in snow and/or much colder weather than I have to worry about. However, on my weekend runs outside, I never seem to dress appropriately. And by “appropriate” I do not mean that I’m out there in a tube top or heels, but I just can’t seem to get it right. My legs end up numb and cold…and my torso, arms, etc are on FIRE. My feet, so far, have had no issues with the temperature change.
Also, while we're talking about this, I have had very few runs in the rain. Help!
I do want to hear the options that you Marathon Mommies have for your own winter(ish) runs. It will make this very wimpy girl feel so much better...now that I've finally asked.
