There are a million excuses for skipping out on your running schedule this winter. It's really cold out, your bed is warm, and it gets dark so darn early. But, if you can muster the motivation to stick with your running routine this winter, you'll be rewarded with more energy and the satisfaction of staying in shape all year long.
One of our favorite ways to motivate ourselves to lace up when it's cold outside? New gear. When we're excited to sport our new running gear, those winter runs feel a lot warmer.
Here's some gear that we're excited to rock this winter.

These seriously warm skirts are meant to go over your running tights when you need a little extra insulation. The best part is that they're thin and can easily be stuffed into a jacket pocket for easy, on-the-go storage. We love this stylish touch to our winter getup.

u're not already familiar with Sweaty Betty, you're going to want to check them out. This brand is bringing fun fashion to the track, streets, woods, and treadmill, while using high-quality, breathable fabrics. Who says base layers have to be one boring color? We love the mountain print on this one.

The Ultimate Warm Tights from Adidas are a nice combination of airy and insulated. We find it much easier to get going on our runs when it's not painfully cold to start, and these running tights keep our legs comfy.

Keeping your head warm is essential to keeping the rest of your body warm. We love the ruched detail and the pony tail opening on this beanie from Thermopolis.
But, of course. Your Lily Trotters Compression Socks are an all-weather companion for increased circulation and comfort. In the wintertime, they also offer extra warmth. Wear them over your tights for some stylish insulation against the cold weather. If you're a shorts-in-the winter runner, your compression socks offer just enough warmth without any bulk.
Stay warm out there and we'll see you on the trail!

Headed to San Diego for work, pleasure, sun...all of the above? Lily Trotters Ambassador Jenn Gill shares her favorite spots in San Diego.
I absolutely love running in San Diego. You can run pretty much every day of the year! The weather is always runnable, even in the heat of the summer (which lasts through November!). You can run in the mountains of east San Diego County in the morning and after a 2-hour drive, be running along the coast at lunchtime. From mountains to beaches, trails to roads, there is something for every runner here.
