No glamorous shot here, just my stretching space at my mom's house after an icy 5 mile run. People were looking at me like I was crazy for running, but I had to take advantage of one of the first days over 0 since Christmas.
Tried out my @newzillusa compression socks for the first time and overall I like them! Despite being a size 10 I found them loose in the foot. Compression socks are a must for me because of bad circulation, so I'm glad I found a good, decently priced brand!
I try to run outdoors no matter how cold it is as long as the roads are safe...keep in mind that I live in Missouri & it is rare we dip below -10* -- but 10 BELOW ZERO in pitch darkness is pretty darn cold! I am a huge wimp about cold, so if I can do it then anyone can. It takes proper gear, & recently several people have asked me what I wear, so here it is. I have no affiliation with any of these companies, & am just looking to help fellow winter warrior runners!****Tights: Mizuno Breath Thermos are the only tights that keep my legs warm enough when it's under about 20*.*****Top: Nike fleece-lined turtleneck that my mom got me in 2009! I have no further information on the style & it is probably no longer available, but it's incredibly warm (clearly also very durable since it's lasted 8 years). I can wear it alone down to about 15*, & under that I'll add a vest or jacket layer.*****Socks: Newzill compression socks, which are much thicker than any other brand I own. I don't even need to double layer socks with these.*****Balaclava: I have no idea what brand this is or where I got it, but it's fleece, toasty, & can be worn multiple different ways.*****Mittens: These are Champion brand little girls XL ski mittens, & my hands get super hot in them (in about any other glove or in thinner mittens my hands FREEZE). You can add single use hand-warmers to gloves/mittens too, but with these I don't even need them.*****I have other winter tricks to share, but this is long enough for now! #mizuno#nike#newzill#champion#winterrunning#winterrunninggear

Giving my legs a stylish boost to recover from yesterday’s tough run. My @newzillusa compression socks come in fun styles and colors and work great on my legs. Lots of foam rolling today. Running through the slush and snow was like running through sand. Sand that left your feet wet and frozen.
