Winter running not as chilling as it seems
Getting outside for a run in the winter can be exhilarating if you make sure you're well prepared.

Rocks!! on Kivi Lake

By ZOE MCKNIGHTStaff Reporter theStar.com

That fear is one of many that keeps some runners from getting outside in winter. Fear of slipping. Fear of freezing. But you can, in fact, run all winter long, no matter how far the mercury slips below zero.

Most people will be just fine — as long as they keep moving. Ask ultra-marathon runner Katherine Yager, who ran 1,000 kilometres last winter between December and March while training for a spring “50-miler” or 80-kilometre race in Haliburton, Ont.

She only covered 22 of those kilometres on the treadmill. For the rest, Yager faced the polar vortex. Literally. Her nose ran uncontrollably and her eyelashes froze together.

“I don’t think any cold is too cold,” she said. It’s uncomfortable, sure, and she worried about frostbite, but it was road conditions that drove her inside: ice increased the risk of a slip and fall and the odd blizzard made it hard to see.

Yager, 26, dresses strategically, arranges her longer runs for milder days, fills her bottle with warm water and tries to head out during the meagre hours of winter sunlight.

“I find it really rewarding in the winter to know I’ve spent all this time outside and people spend all day inside,” she said. “We live here and winter is a part of that. I like being able to run outside all year round.”
