Have I mentioned that I love cold weather? Oh, yeah, only about 5,342 times. ;o)
One of the things I love about the cooler weather is pulling out my warmer running clothes. I like my summer tees and shorts, but I have some awesome winter stuff. And since it’s that gift giving time of year, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all.
Right now I’m running in my ALO capris and in either my Nike half zip or my Thrive half zip most of the time. I gave the capris a favorable review when I got them, but I have to say they’ve moved into “favorite run item” status.
|Wish that was my butt. It’s not.|
It’s just starting to approach really cold weather here, so I won’t get to wear my other favorites for a while, but if you live north of the Mason Dixon line, here are a few other things that rock my world.
Lululemon Wunder Under Pants – I reviewed these last winter when I first started running in them. I used them heavily last year and they still look like new. So, I’m gonna state for the record that yes, they were worth the money.
Sugoi Running Jacket – I love love love this jacket. I’m cheap, I never would have bought it for myself, but winning this was the best thing to ever happen to my winter running.
EMS Power stretch gloves -These are not specifically running gloves, but I picked them up at Eastern Mountain a couple of winters ago and they are perfect for seriously cold days. I’ve worn them in cold rain and somehow they keep my hands warm even when they are completely soaking wet!
Nike fleece cap – Love this thing. Keeps my head warm without being too much. Is it weird that I am excited to use the ponytail hole for the first time ever this year?
Ryders Hex Sunglasses – I was given these to review a year and a half ago. I’m pretty sure I haven’t run without them since then. My mom borrowed mine and liked them so much she bought herself a pair. In fact, I like them so much I’d buy a new pair if they broke. (And that’s saying a lot considering just how cheap I am LOL).

So, what are your favorite running things? Beer Geek and the boys never know what to get me, so I’d love some suggestions!
Disclaimer: Some of the above I was given for review, some I won or got as gifts, some I paid for out of my pocket. No one asked me to write this post and all opinions are my own.
