Winter Weather Wimp

As Fall progressed, I promised myself that I was not going to let Winter derail my running.  And here it is, December 16th, and I haven't run since November 30th.  And it's not even officially Winter yet!

I see other people out running after dark, and several of the other running blogs I follow have posted lately about running in the snow.  So I know it's possible, but I have not done it.  It does appear right now that this coming week will be warm enough to melt the snow, so hopefully I can get out there next Saturday.

In the meantime, I did get a nice walk in Saturday after the snow had stopped.  I put on my boots & walked around the neighborhood on the route I often run.  Walking through the snow was almost like walking on a sandy beach.  Not with warm ocean breezes, of course; but the leg motion of walking in the snow was much like the leg motion of walking in the sand.  So hopefully I got a good workout, and I snapped a few pics, too.

I'm going to try committing to a few events, because knowing I've signed up & spent money will make me get out there no matter the weather, at least for the event itself.  I'm also pondering group runs or a Mini training program by one of the local run clubs, as that commitment will force me outside, also.  What does anyone else do to stay active in the Winter?
