My Favorite Running Gear- Winter Edition
The husband finally woke up around 11 (I’ve never been able to sleep like that) and I finally got to enjoy those delicious cinnamon buns! (Thank goodness I had a snack first!)
Then I did a little studying and it was time for lunch before I knew it!
I made myself another wrap-pizza. So. Good.
Whole wheat tortilla, Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese, spinach leave, turkey, black pepper, and mozzarella. Popped in the toaster oven for about 8 minutes or so.
And some RiceWorks chips.
In light of the cold cold coldness outside I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite winter running gear.
It’s all about the layers. First, a C9 DriFit T-shirt. (You know how I love Target and C9).
I like this shirt for the bottom layer in the winter because it’s long enough to tuck into my pants and keep cold gusts of wind out.
Next up my Nike half zip running shirt. I love this shirt so much I wish it stayed cold longer. It’s the softest material I’ve ever felt. The zipper is great for letting a little air in once you get warmed up. (Plus I found it at the Nike Factory Outlet which was an awesome bonus).
I usually throw a jacket that’s a little thicker on top of that too. Especially (definitely) if it’s raining. This is a mega-old C9-er.
On the bottom I usually wear these C9 (again) running tights. They have zippers at the ankles so they’re easy to get on and off, but are still tight enough to keep the cold air off my legs. They’re also lined with some super soft warm material. The little pocket on the hip is perfect for my keys too.
Last but definitely not least, my winter running essentials. My hat, headband, gloves, and RoadID.
I cannot function if my ears or hands are cold. I wear the Nike headband/earwarmer ALL the time. It has to get pretty warm before I ditch it. When it’s super cold, I also wear the C9 hat. It’s cool I guess because it has a slot for you pony tail, but I think it’s awkward so I just wear it like a regular hat. I think the gloves are self-explanatory. They’re….you guessed it…C9. (If another running company wants to start selling stuff across the street from my house I’d be happy to start spending my mortgage their instead of on C9.) And the RoadID is just a smart, safe idea. Mine has my name, address, some phone numbers to call, and my allergies. Better safe than sorry!
What’s your favorite winter running item?!
