The cold weather has arrived, but that doesn't mean you have to take all of your running inside.

Going to the gym certainly has its place, but running on a treadmill just isn't the same as being in the great outdoors. Too many runners think the arrival of winter means they have to sacrifice those outdoor runs on the Riverfront Trail or Cayon View Park. But, a few affordable accessories can open up a world of opportunity to outdoor running.

These gloves are a must-have for the winter runner. Not only will they keep your hands warm while you run, the touch-tip fingers will enable you to navigate your running app or running music playlist while you run - without having to take a glove off. You won't need these year 'round but it will sure be nice to have them when you need them.

You may have pockets in your running outfit but it's extremely uncomfortable and awkward to run with your phone, keys, and other necessities hanging out of your pocket. It doesn't bounce or rub, and you can access your phone without everything else falling out.

You want to be comfortable while you run and not be distracted by the elements. A thermal top is just what you need to help keep your mind on your mission- not on the cold.

So you have to keep those ears warm and this one-size-fits-all cap is good for both men and women. It's "stretchy" and it "wicks away the sweat."

With today's smartphone technology, wireless earbuds are the way go to. Okay, so these aren't a winter accessory, but they are so cool you need to know about them. For less than 20 bucks, these dudes are durable, reliable, easy-to-use, and affordable.
