Running in Freezing Temperatures

So, I recently came to Spokane, WA. I originally came to visit my sister for Thanksgiving, but circumstances have changed and I will be staying here for a while. So while I have been here I have been doing some running. My parents and I did a turkey trot on Thanksgiving morning that was really fun!

I thought it was cold when I first got here almost 2 weeks ago, but it has continue to get colder and colder.  The first run we did was like mid 30s, the turkey trot was 23 degrees, and each run continues to drop.  My run the other day was 18 degrees and the temp hasn’t gone above 16 degrees today.

All this to say that I am going  to learn very quickly how to dress for and run in cold weather. I only brought Capri running pants with me and a thin jacket. So as it gets colder I am trying to find more tips for cold weather running.  If you have any tips please let me know and I will be posting tips that I find as I learn.
