A Sunny Disposition


I’m convinced that winter is made for hibernating.  It’s cold out, the sun rarely joins us, and we just want to eat more.  It’s definitely tougher to stay motivated to get out and run too!  While the fresh, cold air outside is exhilarating it cannot replace the joyful benefits of the sun.

That is why people “snowbird” during the dead of winter to places like Florida or other warm-weather destinations.  Seasonal depression, largely due to lack of sunlight, is higher during the gray months of January and February than it is in June and July.

As the sun began to come out today I got super excited to know that those sunny days of running are on the horizon and soon enough spring will be here!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
