I run in shorts all year round as legs never seem to feel the cold, but last couple of runs I havn't seen anyone else with their legs out.................is there anymore hardy (foolish) like minded souls out there?
3/4 all year.
Yesterday went out in 3/4's, long sleeve top, jacket and gloves. Longs and hat on standby ... and that's during the day, don't run at night, too cold
I have a confession to make - I wore a pair of tights last week (it wasn't even that cold!).
However it was due to all other kit having been in the wash due to just normal dirt, or because of the total hammer ing it took through the thigh deep cow-poo/mud/water on my off-road run.
I felt so ashamed of myself I resurrected some really old kit, assigned to the scrap heap, but not actually thrown away, for my subsequent runs until other kit was washed. So normal service of short shorts all eyar has been resumed.
I don't know what it is, but I just hate running with stuff on my legs! My legs never seem to feel the cold, even in knee high snow, but I've got to wear gloves even when it's only mild out.
Still wearing shorts! and plan to throughout winter! So far have managed to get away with normal long sleeve tops.
Only once have had to wear my special base layer reserved for real cold temp (North Face, 100% merino wool, with thumb holes) it must have been about 5C max that day. Legs dont seem to get cold...
Yep hardcore all the way !
Still got my legs out. Marathon flappy shorts with sewn-in pants for me all year round - UNLESS it snows. Then I'll break out the tights.
Shorts are a bonus in the pouring rain anyway. 4 cars let me cross the road earlier - pretty sure it had something to do with my lovely shiny wet legs.

legs all the way for me.The look that people give you on a sharp winter morning is priceless.
What do you mean think you are really hard?
We're runners AP - we're well 'ard
I normally run early mornings, 5.30ish and its sometimes a little chilly to start of with but ok after a mile or so.
A couple of weeks ago when we had all the wind it was still around 10 -15 degree here in the SE . I was out running in my shorts and t-shirt when I saw the guy running towards me. He was wearing tights, jacket, gloves and a wooly hat. He must have been boiling as it was so mild.
I'm not the only early riser round my way who wears shorts in the winter, so does our local milkman
