I am highly anticipating the return of warm weather running! I know, I know! This is Texas and it doesn't get that cold here, but there is just something highly unmotivating about running in the winter. When I first started running last summer, I never had a problem getting out of bed and going for a run. This winter, I have become and expert at finding reasons why I shouldn't do my run for the day. I will take running in Texas heat over winter running any day of the week! Running in the cold is just not enjoyable for me. My nose runs constantly, my fingers and lips go numb, I have to wear layers of clothes to start out with and then end up sweating the rest of the run. Plus there is the chilling winds, the watering eyes, and the pitch black of the early morning. This summer, I will probably be begging for a chill, some wind, anything to help me survive the humidity, but for now, I miss the summer and the heat!
By the way, I did convince myself to run this morning and I did 4 miles in 40 min 57 sec.
