What to wear to run with such a chill in the air?? We were so inspired by this article in the New York Times this week about the benefit of exercising before breakfast that we picked some great cold weather running gear. New to the sport, we can attest to the benefit of wearing the right clothing – comfort and proper fits make all of the difference for endurance. The trick is to strike a balance between dressing for warmth but not for overheating, once you get going. We like this system of layers to mix and match depending on the temperature. The blue is reminiscent of the shade of the water in the Central Park Reservoir at certain times of the day – it is such a lovely place to run. Ready, on your mark . . .
