Winter Solstice!!

You have come and gone as you do every year. 

Can anyone say excited?!


I always used to be more of a fan of watching you come than go, but I must admit that I have since changed my preference; your back side is much more enjoyable now.  But if you don't mind, get on the speed work! 

I can't wait for 5PM not to feel like 10PM!

I admit that I always was a winter child.  I loved the snow, winter time, and all it involved.  I hated the heat of the summer, not having friends to hang out with, and attempting to spend all day inside next to the A/C unit.  As much as I still don't enjoy the heat as most people do, have the sun gone by 4 or 5pm is not cool!

Questions
1.  Which season is your favorite?  Has your preference ever changed (and why)?
I used to prefer winter, but I now prefer summer because of my training.

2. Does anyone enjoy training at night / in the dark?
Running at night for the New England Relay was a lot of fun!  My sleep schedule just doesn't allow for it. 


Swim fast.  Bike smart.  Run hard.

Gonna have to say spring and fall are my favorites. Summer and winter are too extreme. I hate when 5 feels like 10 too :)

I love spring and fall. Although fall probably tops them all... spring can be windy & wet. I like running in the dark, as long as I don't have an objective of hitting a certain speed. I slow down a bit in the dark for safety reasons.

I'm tired of short days too. Winter solstice signifies the reversal of short days so it's always welcomed by me. Favorite seasons for me (in order) fall, spring, summer.

Merry Christmas!
