Winterize Your Running: Pre-Heat Your Sneakers

Running in cold weather can be extremely invigorating. As long as you plan ahead for icy terrain and frigid temps, you can avoid falling or getting frostbite. Your extremities are the first things to get cold, so for your hands, windproof running gloves are essential. To keep your feet warm, try this little tip.

Use your blow dryer to heat your sneakers with some hot air. Heat each shoe for 15 to 20 seconds, and immediately slip them on your feet. If you start your run with warm tootsies, they'll be more likely to stay that way once you're in cold temps. You can do this with your mittens or gloves too. Remember to use a blow dryer and not your own hot breath since it contains moisture. Once the moisture gets cold, it will freeze and so will your hands and feet.
