RE: The elites clothing choices in Boston perplexed me
I ran yesterday and was perfectly comfortable. I went with compression half tights under shorts, singlet, arm warmers, cheap polyester knit gloves, and a thin hat. Also Smartwool running socks, but they got waterlogged and hurt my feet.
I was actually colder in 2015, when the weather was similar but less windy. The key difference for me was just never bonking, because the cold starts to creep in when your effort drops. I wonder if the relatively slow pace was part of the problem for elites, since many wouldn't have been working hard enough to stay warm on their own.
