RRT 113: Mid-Winter Motivation

We're at the midpoint of this winter season, and for some, it's been a long season already, especially if you live in the northern US. The groundhog didn't see his shadow today, so maybe spring is on its way......

For some runners, this is the time when their motivation falters, when their enthusiasm for our sport succumbs to the darkness and cold of this season, and the winter is only half over.

For others though, this is a great time to be on the roads, with crisp fresh air in the North, and tolerable temperatures in the South. For these runners, motivation is just kicking in, Spring is coming, and winter is already half over.

Listen in to this discussion of getting started on those winter days (and nights), the right gear to help you succeed in less-than-perfect conditions, and how to beat those winter blues.
