Excuses, excuses, excuses....

"It's cold."

"I'm tired."

"It's dark outside."


These are the things the little voice in my head keeps telling me when I am driving home from work, thinking about my planned run.  It was certainly easier to push that little voice aside this summer, I barely even noticed it in fact.

And now? That little voice is getting louder.

I've managed to quiet it though with two key purchases and a little Nike tough love:  new running tights, a pair of running gloves and JUST DO IT!

I've realized that right now I have to run just to run.  It's too difficult for me mentally to try to push for tougher things with this seasonal change.

Back to basics.
