We found a web site called Another Mother Runner that collected a list of tips and preventative measures from fellow runners with Raynaud’s.

The tips are organized by the stage of the run:  Pre-run, During, and Post-workout.  You may find some of the suggestion to be obvious, but we wanted to pass them all along:

Pre-run Tips

  • Avoid caffeine – it constricts the blood vessels.
  • Start with a blast of heat to warm the extremities – run them under warm water, place them near a heater (we don’t recommend using the stove as the article suggests!)
  • Apply a lubricating barrier – the author recommends a heavy cream with beeswax.  We suggest using a product called Warm Skin – it’s proven to provide a protective barrier from the cold.
