I forgot one more reason why winter running is awesome. You have an excuse to dress like a ninja. A bright orange ninja who doesn’t want to get hit by a car, but a ninja nonetheless.

Who else is watching the Olympic marathon trials? (Everyone, I assume.) You know what makes running badass? No timeouts. If you’re tired, in pain, want to puke, etc, you just keep going. Unless you’re on the Paula Radcliff-level of badassery, if you stop, you’ve lost. Whether you’re gunning for the Olympic team or an age group award at a local 5K (hi), there’s no stopping.
