Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Well for some of us at least. We just received our first snow of the year here in the Midwest, and if you’re anything like me, going out for a run in the cold can sometimes take a lot of convincing and self-bargaining. But give me a few inches of fresh snow, and I’m out the door and ready to explore. Yes it’s cold and wet and a little slippery, but you really can’t beat it and there is truly nothing quite like a run out on the fresh powder. The world looks completely different covered in white sparkly flakes.
As you put on your snowy running gear, you forget about your intervals, going out for a specific time, or mileage. You go out just to explore and to have fun. The world is a new and magical place, and it’s yours for the taking. So strap on your yaktrax, winter running gear, and take a deep breath of the cool fresh air and enjoy a snow-run!
