Hello there! Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. Thank you to everyone for joining me and Kim every Tuesday. This week’s Tuesday Topic is: What is your favorite time of the year to run? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
Did you guess by the image my favorite season for running? Yep, it is Fall. I love it when I can run in shorts and a tank, short sleeve, or long sleeve top. I hate having to wear so many layers during the Winter. I remember a few years ago it was 80 degrees in February. You bet I ran in shorts.
I also like running in the Fall because I love seeing the different color leaves on the trees and on the ground.
I also enjoy running in the morning too. One of the reasons is because I get to see the sunrise. Even if there is no sunrise I like running in the morning when it is still dark (not so much in the Winter). It is just me alone outside while listening to music or just thinking about what’s happening, what I have to do, etc. I find it to be peaceful and relaxing.
After Fall, I also enjoy running in the Spring and Summer. Winter is my least favorite one because of the weather. However, over the years I have learned that the right gear will make running in the Winter more bearable. In the Spring I like to see the flowers. The warmth of the sun feels really good too. Summer is great when I am out early and beat the hot and humid weather. Summer running is also great when running along the lakefront and feeling that wonderful cool breeze. And of course there is those beautiful views!
I know I complain about the weather. But no matter what, I am happy, grateful and thankful that I can run year round. Whether it is hot and humid, raining, snow on the ground, windy, or freezing, I am out there running even if “just” one mile.
