Ex-Smoker turned Runner!
I've also starting noting in my training log what I wore for runs at certain temps and noted the run conditions so I can refer back later.
Today I got to run (yay!) in -20*C with a 9kph NW wind. I wore a ballcall, long sleeved tech shirt, tshirt, fleece over top, fleece pants with unlined windpants over wool socks and mittens.
an outer layer that zips is good because you can adjust if you get too warm
I pretty much run in underarmor coldgear once it goes to 30 F or colder. I wear just my tights and a coldgear shirt (made to keep you warm in the cold). Then a headband to cover my ears and gloves for my hands but they always come off after a mile or two when I warm up. If it's really windy I'll throw on a fleece or heavy t-shirt and yoga pants or something similar to break the wind on my legs. Thats about it anything else and I get too hot.
