It's definitely harder to run in cold weather. I make sure I have plenty of layers (thermal covered by long-sleeve wicking, covered by thermal vest, covered by one or two wind resistant layers, depending on how cold) so that my body doesn't have to use as much energy to keep warm. And I keep it slow and steady. Good luck in the half marathon!
