Excellent habit. I like to run in the summer when it's available as the weather gets nasty here in the winter. But there are limits but I think that there's overall benefit to doing a variety of activities as time permits.
I used to run all winter in Minnesota, no problem. Besides a couple of layers, hat, ears covered, and gloves, on occasion I did have to wear ski goggles. With wind and cold, your eyes are the primary vulnerable point, but I’m talking when you get down around 10F.

I will run down to 22 degrees. But I've gone for walks in -20. I have a lot of gear from Eastern Mountain Sports, Nike, New Balance for running but running outside in the winter means a ton more laundry. I have a spin bike in the basement and I can just go to the YMCA and run on the indoor track or the treadmill.

I have balaclavas, ski goggles, tights, tops, baselayers, mid-layers, wool socks, lots of gloves of varying thickness.

I also have neuropathy as a result of chemo. It's like Raynaud's disease where your fingers and toes buzz or go numb in cold temperatures.

I did not wash any of my outer clothing, and my sweats not that often And… they did not reek… noticeably. :)

Yesterday the Missus and I stopped in at the grocery store for our fall vaccinations, 3 of them, flu, Pneumonia, and RSV. Today I have seriously sore arms, and feel a little off, will most likely avoid my Wed workout. The word is that The new COVID booster will arrive in October.

Was your RSV covered by insurance? I tried to get it a few weeks ago and it was not covered at that point ;(
