Since today is Tuesday, I’m also linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Today’s Topic is: Winter Motivation.
All I usually do on this blog every winter is complain about how cold it is and how I hate it! I mean I live in the NE, I should expect it to be cold and snowy.
So to motivate myself to enjoy this winter more, I decided to point out what is great about winter running:
1. It doesn’t usually rain.
I will run in the snow and cold but I will not run in the rain. Hence, no rain is a good thing for my running.
2. You don’t sweat (as much).
So I have less laundry because I can wear my running clothes more than once.
And I can run after work, change my clothes and then go out with friends (Don’t judge LOL).
3. It’s pretty outside.
Well, at least most of the time.
4. There are free races (in my area.)
Race fees add up. I am lucky that our local running group (HMRRC) sponsors 6 free races during the winter. There are 3 distances to choose from at each race.
It’s informal so it’s just a run with friends and with good food after.
5. There’s not a lot to do in the winter and it’s get me outside.
In the summer, there’s boating, biking, hiking, tennis, gardening…many things to do outdoors.
But in the winter, I don’t ski, ice skate, snowshoe or snowmobile. Running is my only outdoor activity.
