Layering for Cold Weather Running
Congratulations to all of the VASD employees who took part in the Madison Half Marathon and Full Marathon today. I ran the half marathon and I was pleased to see so many VASD employees running great races! The race day temperature hovered around the low 30s which brings up an important topic....what do you wear for cold weather running? In Wisconsin our cold weather season is quite long and many people (me included) prefer the great outdoors over the treadmill. Below is a helpful chart to keep in mind when dressing for your run. The biggest piece of advice I can give is to avoid wearing cotton and wear layers that can easily be shed if necessary.
