I'm not one to push a product, but I have too with the 'Mizuno Breath Thermo' Body Warming Technology...it really works! (I am in no way payed by Mizuno to endorse this product)
I set out today (Sunday) for an easy 3 miler, and my toes were never cold, not once; nor did they over heat. (Which I was a little worried about) ...My toes, since I have lived out East, no matter how thick the sock, are always cold at start, and take about 4-5 miles to finally warm. (no kidding) Today's run, no cold toes, not even for a second....I'm sold(!!) and definitely recommend this product to my running amigos(as).
Down side: They are a little pricey, ($20.00 for A pair of socks), but they truly work. I'm definitely saving, and buying 2 more pairs socks, and a hat. (I also had the gloves, and after I generated some heat, I could feel the gloves start to warm.)
I'm a total cold weather wimp, this product will definitely help me be a bit braver with heading out into the cold...

While I am trying not to look at my Garmin during my runs right now, I did check it out a couple times during Saturdays run. One was when I was huffing and puffing to keep up with Steph, and so thought we were just running a 9:30; but when I looked we were running a 8:45! Cool. (Then we hit a snow filled Haines Point, Steph took off, and I stayed back at a ~9 min pace, nervous of falling)
The next time I peaked, was about mile 7, I took a gander( because I was feeling a little fast:) and it was averaging 8:14, which I decided to try and hold for a mile...and did. After which I dropped to ~8:45 at mile 8, and really slowed the last 1.8 miles in, due to stopping, and walking through the icy/snowy parts heading back to TR island...Yep, I definitely have a phobia of falling. (I'm working on it)
