Preparing To Run In Cold Weather

Well, it’s Iowa and it’s starting to get cold. Looks like that first real blast of cold air will hit this week after a pretty mild fall.

Beyond that, I never miss an opportunity to share some good “Penguin” advice.

John “The Penguin” Bingham recently had a helpful post for those runners preparing to run in the cold weather. Since I’ve often had newby runner friends pose questions about what to wear in colder weather, I thought this may be helpful information to pass along.

The key to remember when running outdoors is that while it may be chilly at first, you warm up quickly with running. So, there’s no need to layer up excessively to a point where you risk overheating.
