Peachy,
 
Is the cold weather keeping you from running? If you have the proper gear and layer properly, you'll be comfortable on your run and stick to your running goals. Above is a guide you can use to help determine what you should wear based on various temperatures. Keep in mind that some people feel chilly in 70-80º weather while others run hotter. Another basic guide is to dress like it's 20º warmer than it shows on the thermometer.

Tips:

  • Skip the cheap athletic wear. Invest in good quality running clothes. 
  • For base layers, consider a snug-fitting merino wool blend top. Merino wool is light and has warming properties.
  • Have a good light jacket that offers wind-blocking panels and is water-resistant. 
  • Look for merino wool blend socks. Your feet will thank you.
  • Optional - a lightweight vest that will keep the core warm. If it has wind-blocking material, even better.
  • Gloves with wind-blocking panels or coverings, bonus if they have reflective features.
  • Hat/skull cap or headband (fleece-lined for really cold temps)
  • Tights for 35-45º temps/fleece-lined tights with wind-blocking panels for 32º and below.

Common Ground
Recently, Rich Kenah, Executive Director of Atlanta Track Club, and our Founder, Mike Cosentino, sat down for a conversation to discuss diversity in the running community. Common Ground is an initiative from Atlanta Track Club that allows for conversations around diversity and inclusion. All 7 of our locations were gifted a bench to symbolize the common ground we all share. We welcome you to watch the video and come to our stores. We welcome all discussions that help us work towards more diversity and inclusion within our stores and our running community. Click the image below to watch.
