Beat the Cold!

I attended a cold weather running seminar hosted by Fleet Feet Sports Chicago last Sunday. The idea of attending a seminar seems pretty boring, but it wasn't half bad. Two buyers for the Chicago area stores spoke about layering, safety, and general winter running stuff. The one resounding theme was, cotton is the enemy! It’s all about wicking material. I learned this lesson early, but I guess not everyone knows this. Also, reflective material and bright colors are essentials of course, with fewer daylight hours. I'm trying to rationalize the purchase of these $38 Saucony 'Ulti-Mitts'. They're bright AND reflective!

Fleet Feet came up with a fun little chart to help with apparel choice decision making. Detailed right down to the skivvies . . .
