Our most recent storm has been more like March than December, featuring heavy wet snow and periodic showers of “ice pellets.” In short, it’s nasty out. The right gear makes all the difference, though, and we had a mostly enjoyable run through the snow and ice. The only thing I was missing was a pair of clear shade; the ice pellets were painful when they hit eyes!
My must-haves for snowstorm runs:
Skida Headband: Absolutely the best active headbands on the market. Vermont-made and worth checking out.
Brooks Nightlife II: Make sure plows see you!
Nathan Poptop Gloves with fully reflective top: Warm, water resistant and more visibility.
Saucony Omni Tight: The best winter tight I’ve ever owned; perfect for a single layer to 10 degrees.
Icebugs: If you live in snow country, invest in these. I ran outdoors throughout all of Ice-pocalyse last year without a single issue.
