I talked before about the transition I went through from being a guy who runs into a runner. I think nothing separates these two groups more than running in bad weather. If you’re a guy who runs (or a girl), then you like to run because it’s nice out and a good day outside is a great way to exercise or change your gym routine. If you’re a runner, you look outside at the rain, snow, or freezing temps and feel a little sadistic thrill that you’re going out for a run.
As far as bad weather running advice during the winter, the biggest danger is ice. Cold and snow can be annoying, but ice can be dangerous. If you live close enough, I would recommend doing your run around UK’s campus. They do an amazing job of clearing off the sidewalks, which lessens the chance you slip and fall. I prefer to go layers with some Under Armour type base layers over a bulky coat, but the main goal is staying warm.
