Usually when it gets to be below 45F, I stop running outside entirely, but these ladies have some fancy cold-weather running gear and, most importantly, good attitudes, so I have promised myself I will stick with the outdoor running at least until the 8k is over. Plus the gym gets overheated and gross-smelling, which does not happen on the windy lakefront path.
To get myself motivated, I've put together a small cold-weather wish list full of items that, in my dream life, would really help me keep going. It's lots of fun to imagine having the funds to stock my little workout gear cupboard with all these items!

Are you a runner, or do you otherwise exercise outdoors in very cold weather? What kinds of equipment do you rely on? I'd love to read your suggestions in the comments.
