What to wear running in 25 degrees (a NYC Run)

Temps: 25 degrees
Wind: 5 mph
Humidity/Precip.: Big, wet snowflakes
Terrain: Rolling hills
Distance: 2 miles

What I Wore: Road Runner Sports t-shirt, Nike zip-up running jacket, heavy Road Runner Sports tights, gloves and hat.

Did It Work: Mostly yes. Except:
  • These lined tights are so darn good, my thighs were sweating by the time I got home. A run that included a walk might have led to cooling down too much.
  • My hat didn't cover my ears, so they were chilly
Do This Run: Whether you're a distance runner, a walker or just in New York, I strongly recommend this run. It was through Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. Most New Yorkers rarely make it to this part of the island, but it is beautiful, especially early in the morning when it is more quiet than you would think NYC can be.
