Health Tip: Run Safely in Cold Weather
Don't use headphones

(HealthDay News) -- When the weather gets cold, you can take the temperature change in stride as long as you take a few precautions.

The Road Runners Club of America offers these safety guidelines for winter weather running:

  • Avoid headphones or earplugs so you can hear potential threats, such as cars or falling branches.
  • Don't run when the weather is icy. If you do go out, make sure your shoes have plenty of traction.
  • As the days get shorter, wear bright or reflective gear, so motorists can see you.
  • Dress in layers.
  • If you start shivering, it's a sign that your body is losing heat. Don't ignore this potential sign of hypothermia.
  • Know where to find shelter on your route.
  • If you drive before you start running, keep a blanket and change of clothes in your car.
