We’ve been doing a nice share of cold weather running lately, and I’ve been slowly growing a little collection of chilly temp approved running wears. This list is full of the stuff I love to wear (no affiliation with any brand) and works well for me. We run around 3-5 miles, and I often go on run/walk workouts with my gal friends and our kiddos all bundled in strollers. So these clothes have been put through the lunge/squat/snag a snack paces and have come out the other side as great! My budget is pretty limited so I have been scouring around for cheaper versions that still work (think: Old Navy, H&M, Costco instead of Lulu, Athleta, and Lucy) but I have no doubt that buying some great products from those brands would mean have running clothes that will last several years as opposed to only a few. But, right now, it’s worth it to find some cozy wears that don’t break my bank.
A buff! Charlie and I snagged these to wear for our Half Marathon after my brother heartily recommended them (he is a crazy marathoner). You can wear it as a headband (and covers your ears in the cold! SO important!). But what really sold us is that it can be pulled wide over your whole/head and ears and fit underneath (safely) your bike helmet. Since Charlie is a bike commuter this sold him on the kinda higher price! These are often on sale, and I have my eye on one of the fleece ones! Available HERE.
This top is an Old Navy find that I got a few years ago (I have black!) the finger holes sold me. It’s a perfect layering piece and works great as a top layer in the spring (with a tank underneath) and as a bottom one in the winter. I’ve been wearing this with a little (super nice jacket my Mom got me at Lucy years ago) jacket over the top and always end up in just this piece about half way through the run. I bought mine about a size to big and I actually love how it kind of skims instead of clings and covers my knuckles in the cold. Available HERE.
I’ve been looking for long running tights for quite awhile. The ones I really love are too pricey for me. But these ones are REALLY awesome for a super great deal! They are a little higher waisted and have a nice thick elastic band in them to stays up, tight, and even has a little draw string for extra support. The pocket in the back is large enough for keys but too small for a phone, and the breathable knee backs are awesome and didn’t seem to takeaway from the warmth factor! Available HERE.
I just bought these a couple days ago and they are AMAZING. I wouldn’t include them except that I just finished up an icy run and these were awesome and a few other runner buddies have vouched for them too. Bonus? They have little leather technology deals on the finger/thumb so you can access your phone without taking them off. This is paramount if you are an over poster who likes to take pictures of errything on your run… just me? Oh well. Available HERE.
I’ve yet to find the perfect socks, and I’ve been stocking up on good thick headbands so that I can use my buff around my neck… because, brrrrrrr!!!
