Winter is No Excuse. Go Run!

Going along with our day 16 lesson and weekly challenge of coming up with a mantra for our tough runs, this is mine. It's not specific to get myself thru a tough run. It's more of my mantra for doing KRun. As I've posted previously, one of the main reasons I'm doing KRun in the middle of winter is to help motivate getting runs completed outside during the coldest months of the year. The last few springs I've started the season off way behind because of the failings of winter. This time I'm not letting cold be an excuse. Thru day 17 of KRun it has worked. Let's hope it continues until spring has sprung. Go Run!

    You've positioned yourself to be in a higher gear when spring rolls around. Excellent mantra Matt.

      So appropriate Matt, especially with a lot of people struggling with snow and extremely cold conditions, love it! I should have made that my mantra last Sunday when temperatures dropped in HK and I chose not to run!

            Perfect way to position yourself for the spring. Plus running in the winter has some bennies...as in no mosquitos. And this winter offers some pluses, as in the extremely mild weather...remember last winter???
            Go Matt Go :)

              It can be hard to motivate on the dark, cold days of winter - keep running! I haven't had a mantra up in a while, I think I'll try one.
