Todays run I found myself mourning the summer. It takes me a mile to warm up and as I ran through the wet grass and sheep shit all I could think of was those dark, cold runs through the middle of winter to look forward to. I know that spring will bring back all the good stuff.
I was talking about this to a bloke at work and putting a real downer on it all. He said “what about those runs in the snow with big blue skys on an early Sunday mornings” That’s what I want and that’s what I will look forward to. The dark evenings also provide that anonymous envelope that I enjoy when I run. So…………bring on the winter…..come on!!!
