We’ve got you covered for running outdoors throughout the next few months. In this “best of” MRG Podcast re-release, Heather Durocher and co-host Cassy Stone talk about their love of winter running and have a great conversation with fellow winter running lover Susan Hoddinott, assistant store manager at Gazelle Sports in Grand Rapids. Susan shares her vast knowledge of essential clothing and gear to have for your outdoor running adventures. The trio talk about the importance of layers, and Susan explains why merino wool is great for your head and feet. Traction for shoes (and the right shoes to keep your feet dry) also is part of the discussion. One newer product Susan mentions — a headlamp for your early morning or evening runs — got Heather and Cassy thinking about adding this to their winter running gear (you just might do the same). Whether you’ve run outside throughout winter in the past, or you’re thinking of giving it a try this year, you’re sure to be inspired to stay active no matter the weather.
