I will be the first one to confess to you that winter takes a toll on me like no other season. The dark, cold, short days really get to me. The cold takes the energy out of me more than anything. As the days shorten through fall and into winter, I can take the diminished sunlight as long as the weather holds up. I can take rain and wind in the summer. I cannot take snow, wind, and cold temperatures in the winter. I really can’t.
So I bought myself some running inspiration to take me through the winter. I am always inspired by others’ stories of overcoming odds or meeting challenges head on. My plan is to read these every day during winter and then motivate myself to get out and run with the dog despite the weather. We’ll see how it goes.
What motivates you?
