What to Wear for a Run When It's Freezing Outside

Staying active in the wintertime is a challenge. Of the endless list of things working against you (early nightfall, holiday obligations, the strong inclination to cozy up fireside rather than lace up your sneakers for a run), the frigid temperatures certainly aren't doing you any favors. But for the strong-willed, suiting up in the right pieces can make or break your cold-weather run. The ideal formula combines a long-sleeve top that insulates while also wicking away sweat and full-length leggings that do the same. To help you tackle your running goals and hit your stride in style, we've rounded up activewear to create the perfect running outfits for winter.
