Never thought about wearing long socks, I like the idea. I'm the kind that wears shorts as long as possible, well into the snow.

I eventually bought a little bike light that flashed red that I could clip onto my sleeve or shorts. I even went so far as to get some reflective tape and put some on my sleeves and shorts, but I was running by a major thru road in my town so I wanted to be extra careful.

Hope this all helps.
Good call, I am fortunate enough to have a groomed trail or two within 500m of my place, so I'm not to worried about being seen by cars.

I dont know about head to toe, but definatly getting some UA, I love my HeatGear.

When I'm talking colder weather for my southern friends, I'm talkin 5 to -20 or -30 celsius, or about 40 to -5 or -22 fahrenheit. Its not that bad lol It is to cold to do my static exercises out doors, but nice for running.

Thanks for the ideas guys, keep em coming.
