My oldest son Jordan, who is 11 years old, had his first winter run club session with his middle school. The weather was around 46°F and cloudy. He wasn't sure what to wear for the run so he went with an Under Armour sweatshirt, running gloves and sweatpants.
He only wear a t-shirt under his sweatshirt because he gets hot quickly, and didn't feel like it was cold enough to wear an Under Armour shirt underneath. It was the perfect amount of clothing he was comfortable and was able to run the two miles. In the next couple of weeks they will increase the number of miles they run and of course it will probably be colder.
For those seasoned runners, do you think he should wear more or what he is wearing is fine? Also, his hands sweat a lot, and the gloves we got him are for running and should absorb most of the sweat. We'll see how it works.
He says it was really fun and will continue to do it. It also helps that half of his soccer team also joined the run club, which is great because it will keep him motivated to do it, not that he wasn't before.
We'll see how it goes and will keep you up to date on his progress.
