Sick of Winter


This is what happens when you sign up for a March half marathon.  You have to deal with winter in the Northeast.

I am sick of  the words: WIND CHILL, BLACK ICE, SNOW, SLEET, FREEZING RAIN, WINDY, COLD, FREEZING…

running during a snowstorm 😦

I am also tired of looking for places to run that are plowed, have no ice.

nope…not plowed

I hate having to plan my runs around the weather…esp. long runs.  Do I do my long run on Saturday or Sunday!!!  UGH!!!!!!!

So next year, my half marathon will be Jan 5, 2014 so I will be done training by the worst of the NE winter weather!!!!

Running in Orlando (while on vacation)

This is my preferred running weather!!!

Happy Running! How do you feel about training in the winter?

  1. Our winters aren’t that bad, so I don’t mind training during these months. However, we usually have to train through the wicked heat/humidity of summer/fall for our half marathons – quite honestly, I don’t there there’s very many places where you CAN train for a race and not have to deal with yucky weather. Just one more reason running makes us stronger, right?

  2. I hate running in the cold. If it’s below 30 or too windy, then forget it. I don’t do rain, sleet, or snow either. The result of this is I spend a lot of time on the treadmill or indoor track at our local YMCA. Sucks. Cause I love running outside! I don’t really have room to complain like you do though. Georgia weather is mostly ideal. Time for you to relocate girl! 😉

  3. I am just thankful that last year was a mile winter when I was full marathon training. And since I am injured right now – I haven’t been running much during this miserable cold winter.
