Winter running gear can be a little overwhelming for the new runner. I hope to make it a little easier for you to find what you need for those cold winter days.

In my search for the perfect running pants I spoke to a bunch of running moms and came up with some tips and recommendations on what to wear and when. Check out what I found here winter running pants and tights.
Have you taken for granted that your toes are just always freezing in the winter and that's just a part of life? Well I've come to find out this is not the truth, our toes do not have to freeze.
It's bad enough that our toenails often come off from running, there's no reason the toes should have to go through any more battle scars. Instead the freezing can be combated and the toes protected with wool socks.
If you plan on experiencing a lot of snow or freezing rain this winter but don't want to be stopped by it, you will want to keep saran wrap in your house to wrap your feet in before you go for a run.
However, before you do so, check out these VERY important tips on putting on saran wrap and other cold weather running tips.

Here is a selection of running hats to keep your warm during your winter runs, whether you prefer something to just cover your ears or to cover your entire head.
What was that my mama always told me? Keep your extensions warm and the rest of you will be warm. So with the winter running gear so far we've covered the head and toes, now let's take care of the hands and fingers.
There are some fancy running gloves such as the Under Armour that even has an extra pocket to carry cash or a key in. But if you live in a place like New York City, where peddlers line the streets, take advantage of the $3 or two-for $5 deal and your hands will be just fine.
