Let's face it, it's winter. Now is the time to commit to getting out the door consistently and putting in the miles. I'm not talking about every day or lots of miles, just about getting out the door on a regular basis to keep the fire lit. One of the reasons we run is that it is simple and requires hardly anything. Yes winter requires a few more layers, but in the grand scheme of winter sports running is still as basic as it gets. A synthetic or wool base layer next to the skin to wick away moisture, (staying dry is staying warm,) covered by a micro fiber vented shell to stop the wind. Add to that tights, hats, mitts, some traction control for the shoes, head lamp and reflective vest. Winter brings darkness, icy winds, bad footing and most importantly, runs that give us the greatest feeling of accomplishment ever!
Whatever the weather, we'll be ready to run.
Get out there today,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who's mantra is "I love winter, I love winter" ... And I'll repeat it until I believe it!
