Ok, so I never ran outside while there was still snow outside. First, because of my asthma, I can’t breathe right when it’s cold. second, because I don’t know how to dress to avoid being too cold or too warm.
I think I’m going to give it a try, because I’ve been sick for the past two weeks and haven’t worked out. I need to work out hard, and I really need to get out of the house!
So, any tips on the wardrobe issue?

I had this same problem earlier this winter. Call in to your local sports store and they’ll sort you out. I bought a tight long sleeved coolmax shirt and pants to wear under my normal running clothes and they’re ok but I actually find I sometimes am a little too warm! By far the best think was getting something to cover your mouth and neck and warm up the air as you breath. I cal mine a neck gaiter but I don’t know what they’re really called. That makes a huge difference! And it stops your nose running too as a side benefit!
Throw them with a hat, gloves and good socks and you’re set. If you have good gear winter running is actually the best! You feel so refreshed after it!

I don’t know what the temp is there, but you should always dress for 15-20* cooler than what is is outside when you run. You will warm up quickly and find yourself hot otherwise. When it’s below 30 I will wear running tights, with a lightweight pair of pants over them, long sleeved technical shirt, and fleece jacket. Make sure your ears are covered. I tend to get cold in hats, so I like the ear bands…fleece is the best because it wicks the moisture and keeps you warm. I love the convertable glove/mitten things, because my hands usually get hot after a while…or if you have pockets, you can just take the gloves off.
