Fighting my running slump

Over the past few weeks, I haven’t been able to run outside as much as I’d like. I’ve also found myself stuck in a bit of a running rut, which I mostly blame on the weather.

If I’m actually going to get myself in shape in time to run my first half marathon this June, I need to step things up a notch.

So, I went back through my running photos from the past year and have included a few of my favourites below. If you’re like me, and are having a tough time keeping the momentum going during the dead of winter, these pics are for you too.

I hope you enjoy. And, just a quick sidebar… I also went to lululemon over the weekend and bought myself a ridiculous running skirt. Maybe I’ll be motivated to push myself if I look super cute while doing it?

Note: Last summer, when I worked at Ducks Unlimited Canada, I wrote a short article with a few tips about how to exercise safely in a wetland. It also includes a running pic of yours truly, and you can check it out here.
