“There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.”

I’ve never heard that quote before. When I did a little research it has been attributed to the Scandinavians and the Norwegians. Whoever said it was spot on.

When it starts getting cold outside, I run on the treadmill again. The cold air makes it so hard to breathe that I prefer the comfort of the indoors and the entertainment of the television nearby.

I had forgotten how nice it can be to run in the winter when I have warm enough clothes.

    you think thats cld well its been around 35F in the UK we had snow last week.

  3. Chief Says:

    I ran three miles Saturday with snow flurries in the air and temp around 25F.

    You are correct in saying it is all about having the right clothes. There are plenty of high performance fabrics available now days that can make running in almost any temperature comfortable.

    When it gets really cold I wear a hat that covers my face, nose, mouth and neck that seems to help with making the air I am breathing a little warmer.

    I’m trying to get up the nerve to run outside in the snow. I really really dislike being cold.

    I’ve found that if my hands, feet and head are warm, I’m okay. Good gloves, shoes and a ski mask (or a balaclava) are the necessities when it’s this cold.

    What does 38F, 44F and 25F mean?

  8. Laura Moncur Says:


    Those are temperature amounts. 38F means 38 degrees Fahrenheit.
