'Tis the Season...for Layers
We're at that time of year when it starts to get cold.  Remember to follow weather advisories and be smart about running.  Dress appropriately, dress for weather 20 degrees colder and layer when possible. 

If you are running at night be sure to remember a flashlight or headlamp. Reflective clothing is always a good idea.
