When it comes to health and wellness, the hardest work produces the greatest reward in body and mind.
Running can be a struggle, but it is especially hard during the winter months when the cold temperatures give you an easy reason to slack off, or even quit. Don't hibernate. Don't quit. Keep going.
Once you overcome the mental test presented by the cold air your mind opens to the experience. The urge to crawl under the covers and set the alarm for April is gone. You are back in control of your life. Winter is just one leg of the race.
