Winter running clothes are my favorite! Lululemon specifically has revived some of my solid favorites this season. I feel like that never happens. Usually, I fall in love with something there and they never bring it back, but I’m getting lucky this season. Here are some of those:
- Brushed Speed Tights: hands down best running tights! Compressive, so soft, side pockets, reflective details. I have one pair that I bought three years ago and I wear them constantly during the winter months (they’re still in great condition. I don’t put mine in the dryer.)
- Run With Me Mittens: I don’t know why, but I have yet to find a pair of running gloves that actually keep my fingers warm. Only mittens do the job. I have had my Lululemon mittens for ages, washed them several times, and they are still in excellent condition. I use them when I’m not running, too- I know I’ll wear them a lot in NYC.
- Run and Done Ear Warmers: Mornings can get chilly, even in Arizona. I use these daily.
- Swiftly Tech Half Zip: I love the swiftly material because it never gets too hot. There’s a big possibility I’ll run in this one in NYC.
- Sweaty or Not Bra: A new favorite of mine! Super supportive, great coverage, and so comfy.
- Go the Distance Jacket: I have this jacket in a floral print from a couple years ago and it is a winner. Just a great jacket for pre-race and post-race hanging out, and perfect for early morning runs with just a running bra underneath.
- Run: Turn Around Tight: You need these in your life! They are crazy soft. I use them for everything- not just running. I never want to to take them off.
- Rebel Runner Crop: These are my absolute favorite crops no question. High waist (tummy control- yes!), side pockets, the absolute best and flattering fit. There’s a a big pocket in the back, too. Pretty sure I’ll wear these for NYC (unless the weather gets hot at the last minute.)
- Fleecy Keen Jacket: I bought this jacket shortly before I ran the Chicago Marathon and the Dublin Marathon in 2012. I remember the price was really hard to swallow, but I ended up wearing it (underneath my coat) all over both cities every day that I was there. It turned out to be the best investment. The next fall I wore it all over Washington D.C. and New York City, too. It is so warm, so comfy, and so versatile (the hood zips off and can be used with any jacket.) I’ll bring it with me to NYC and wear it underneath my coat to keep warm (I’m a cold weather wimp since I’m an AZ girl.) I’ll also have it in my check bag for after the race (again.)
- Sattva Pant: I love pants that feel like sweats, but you can disguise them as non-sweats. These fit the bill. I’m wondering if I need these to slip into after the marathon in NYC…
Tell me some of your winter running must-haves! Can you tell that I’m excited to not be running in 1,000 degrees???
