No one ever said running was supposed to be easy, but in winter it can turn downright hard. It’s cold, it’s dark, it’s wet (even occasionally, we’ve heard, in Southern California), so why bother? Because! Because getting your miles in, day after day, despite the snow and subzero temperatures, is one of the most satisfying feelings a runner can experience. Still, those temps are no joke—you need to dress wisely in order to stay warm without overheating. That’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite items of new gear, to keep you chugging along all season.
