I love the winter and enjoy running when it is chilly and especially when it is COLD !!!
Now I am very cold hardy and generate a lot of heat when i workout. My theory is that i carry enough clothes in the event that I get hurt or stranded some where while running but usually am running in or near town so and injury may lead to a brief.crawl to nearest house or business- But when I run out in the country or on the trails I leave a note (or a flight plan) about my run[hike] and my timetable and map or route I will be following. I carry in a pack the necessary safety stuff(bright colors, a layer of warm, gloves….)
Now i also live in Virginia so the threat of real winter challenges is minimal.
What do you do in the winter that varies from your warm weather actions?
