I find that gloves are part of my problem.. something about keeping each finger apart makes them colder for me, no matter what the gloves are made of.
I'm looking for a recommendation for gloves that will keep my fingers warm.
My cheap solution: just wear socks on my hands. Works like a charm. It does not, however, impress the chicks.

From your description, it sounds like you have Raynaud's Syndrome. You should be really careful when running outside because you might get frost bite. I wear a pair of fleece gloves and they're good to about -9 F. Anything colder and I'm staying home or run on a treadmill. You could try a two layer approach. Wear a pair of thick fleece gloves underneath, and a shell as the outer to block the wind. Maybe you can check out cycling stores for gloves because nothing beats up your knuckles more than riding a bike in the winter. Good luck!
