A short one today – the weather in the Northeast has been exceptionally warm….for winter!  The lesson of the day is what I always tell people:  You can always bring it with you and take it off, but if you are cold and 5 miles from your house, you can’t make it materialize.

In the cold weather, make sure you dress in layers.   Your inner layer should be of a wicking material – to bring the moisture from your sweat away from your body.  Then, depending on how cold it is, have 1-2 middle layers followed by an external windbreaker.  Top it off with earmuffs and hat, add gloves and include tights, and you are on your way.  There are many brands – this is not going to be a long post on brands – but try on ones for comfort and utility.

In the warmer months, make sure you dress lightly – and at the same time make sure you wear appropriate suntan lotion over exposed areas.

That’s it for this week – Happy Running this weekend….

I have been running for over 35 years, having done practically every possible racing event or distance from the 100 meters through the marathon. I competed in varsity high school cross country and track at Saddle Brook High School in the mid-1980's, varsity cross country and track at Division II Pace University and finished well over 200 road races since then, including 20 marathons with a lifetime best of 3:14:50. I was the president of the Hoffmann LaRoche corporate running team for 7 years, growing the team from 25 to over 90 during his tenure. I coached many of these runners to achieve their goals, whether they were beginners or advanced. In 2011 I was an assistant coach for the Fair Lawn Recreation track team, helping the 10 to 14 year old group. I am currently personally coaching dozens of runners, from beginner levels to advanced levels and getting them to be prepared to meet their goals.
