What You Need for Fall Trail Running

Some runners are ecstatic when the summer heat waves goodbye and the crisp autumn air moves in. It's like free air-conditioning, because you bundle yourself up in lightweight layers for your run, and when you start to warm up, you just peel them off and the fall breeze cools you down.

Trail running is one of my favorite things to do in the fall. Since the air is so cold, you don't have to worry about voracious mosquitoes attacking you (that's why I don't trail run on hot days). You do need to watch the ground carefully though, since leaves may be covering hidden ditches, rocks and twigs. That always adds to the excitement though, and because there's so much to be aware of, there's no time to get bored.

Here are a few pieces of gear to make your fall trail running more enjoyable:

I totally have to second whoever recommended that sports bra! It's really comfortable and supportive. Great for fall when you don't have to stress so much about "moisture management" i.e. sweating all over the place.

I live in a very cold country cut still I do run outdoor as much as I can. I have even been running at temperatures down to -10 to -15°C (around 5-10°F) and actually enjoyed it! As long as it is not too windy (wind does chill a lot, I have experienced that!),it is really enjoyable and it makes me feel powerful when I go for my run whatever the weather is, rain, wind, snow, nearly nothing will stop me! It takes more time to get dressed and prepared but I love the feeling of fresh cold air or rain on my face.
