How about you? Do you face her head-on, armed and ready, or do you prefer to stay inside?
Living in Iowa, it's a given the winters are gonna be chilly. In fact, the winters in Iowa can be downright brutal. But, there's a small clause to my running this time of year...I do not like 'Milly (she's my treadmill) and she does not like me.
So, what's a gal to do? Simple answer...I head outside.

None the less, I have come up with some Winter Running Hacks that have worked for me. I have to confess, these little hacks have given me a certain (subtle) guilty pleasure because most cost nothing but a little creativity and forethought.
Here you go:
*Consider layering a fleece headband UNDER a stocking hat. A hat will keep you warm, but sometimes if the wind is blowing, a little extra something underneath will make it that much warmer.
|Can you see the headband hiding underneath the hat?|
|You can find inexpensive stockings at discount stores like Target or Walmart|
|Also, wearing the glasses OVER your headband or hat will keep your ears covered better|
|Remember my obnoxious Christmas "tights?" They actually were inexpensive leggings layered over actual running tights!|
|Stash your phone in a warm & toasty glove or mitten|
