Winter Running Tips: Wear Layers
When winter running, layering allows the warm air from your body to act as an insulator. “Clothing should be made from synthetics, which are lightweight and draw moisture away from the skin,” says Bowen. Non-synthetic materials trap moisture-if you sweat, your clothes will get wet, causing discomfort and chafing.
How to Layer:
- Balaclava or toque
- Fleece pullover over a thin long-sleeve top
- Light jacket with reflective material
- Thin long johns under tights or loose pants
- Regular running shoes.
