What Running Clothing Should I Wear?

by Gary
(Fredericksburg, VA)

What running clothing do I wear in 60 degree morning DC weather?

Answer by Dominique:
Hi there,
Thanks for your question about running clothes.

What running clothing to wear is a highly personal choice.

I like to go out as much as possible in running shorts and a running shirt.

At 60 degrees I would go out just in those.

Of course you are welcome to choose whichever apparel you want to, e.g. if it's a bit cold for you, you could opt for a pair of tights or a long sleeve shirt.

Keep in mind that after only five minutes of easy running your body will warm up. Even when it is quite a bit colder than 60 degrees I would go out in just short-sleeve shirt and shorts.

After a few initial cold minutes I'd be warm enough for the rest of the workout.

Check out my running apparel section for plenty of running clothing suggestions for every runner in every climate.

Hope this helps.
Enjoy your running!
Cheers,
Dominique

Great advice
by: Bubba

This is great advice regarding clothing to wear during active events. As a jogger myself here in Texas, I tend to wear short sleeves and shorts nearly all year. No matter how cold it gets (except in really cold weather), you can get away with this advice.
