It has been pretty cold here in the mornings lately which has invoked some flashbacks to running last Winter. I was pretty much miserable during every race and every training run because I was COLD super super COLD.
I definitely don’t want to go through that again so it is time that I invest in some cold weather running gear. More specifically I need to invest in some running tights and some gloves / mittens as my fingers and butt where the parts of my body that went through the most torture last Winter.
Like any good runner, I have been doing some research and I have come up with a few options that I am considering.
First as far as the tights go, I have been looking into Under Armour and Nike. I have a pair of UA ColdGear capris and they have worked good for me so naturally I figured their HeatGear tights would be just as good. However, my favorite pair of running shorts are Nike Pro and Nike has Hyperwarm Pro tights that might just be perfect….that is if they keep me warm.
I have also been researching gloves but haven’t come up with any clear winners. I was thinking of getting a pair that is a glove / mitten combo. I would like a pair that I can easily use with my phone and iPod so I don’t get frustrated with taking them off and putting them back on. Maybe something like these Nathan PopTop Convertible Glove/Mitt
I would love some input!
Do you have a pair of tights or gloves that you love for Winter running?
