10 Winter Running Essentials

All the running gear to keep you warm and dry on your winter runs—"Baby, it's cold outside," won't stand as an excuse not to go.
Though Rocky Balboa famously trained by running through Philadelphia in the winter in his sweats, you don’t want to follow suit. Something that baggy will slow you down, and cotton? It will collect moisture, not repel it. But you do want another layer on top of your tights, and adidas’s Response 3-Stripes Wind Pants is perfect for blocking wind and holding in body heat. The Response is also 100 percent polyester, so you will be far warmer than the “Italian Stallion” when you run up the Rocky Steps. ($65, adidas.com)
