Fitness Friday: Ready for the Cold

It's been frigid here in New England lately. Temperatures are low, wind chills are even lower. This season, I'm more prepared for my cold outdoor runs with a new piece of winter gear.

Lululemon's Brisk Run Neck Warmer:

After seeing my running partner wear this, I had to get one. This multipurpose piece is a neck warmer that can also be worn as a hood. I hate to wear hats because my head gets warm and then I have to carry the hat or end up overheating. But sometimes the temperatures are too cold to just wear bandless earmuffsWith the brisk run neck warmer, once you warm up, you can just pull it down and wear it loose around your neck. 

In below freezing weather and running against the wind, my head and ears stay warm and comfy. The BRNW has an adjustable cord at both ends so that you can wear it as snug a you like. The Rulu fabric is super soft and wicking.

Next weekend I'm heading up to Maine to run the Mid-Winter Classic 10 Miler in Cape Elizabeth. I have a feeling my new brisk run neck warmer will keep me safe and warm there.

What are you wearing this season to stay warm and safe from the cold?

  1. I love that. I tend to wear a hat and be fine with it, but my neck has been freezing lately with the wind we've been getting.

  2. Lots of layers and compression socks/arm sleeves keep my warm :)

  3. Sorry I hit enter too soon:) I might have to look into getting one of those. Right now I wear a warm hat, and a neck warmer that I can pull up over my mouth (call it my robber look, LOL) to keep my lungs from getting freezer burn...

  4. LOL! Wouldn't that be nice ;) I think the treadmill is going to be popular for New Englanders all weekend. Ugh!

  5. LOL -freezer burn, that's a good way to describe it! This one is nice because it can cover as much or as little as you need.

  6. Stay Warm! We are suppose to get our first dusting of snow tonight

  7. Oh that looks warm!!!! Now if I had any interest in running outside right now, I'd wear that. But nope, zero interest. I think that's bad considering I am running Midwinter Classic too. See you there!!!


I love comments!
