Ferguson,_Richard.jpg___3.jpgFall is a great time to run and this past fall your running went really well. You trained well, had some good races and you really enjoyed the cool weather, beautiful colors of the trees and even the first frosty morning. But now its winter, and for many runners winter can mean one of the most challenging times of the year, both physically and mentally. You indeed worked really hard in the fall and got really fit, but now the fall seems so far removed and your running motivation some mornings is as low as the mercury in the thermometer.

By Dr. Bill McCarberg

I run because it makes me feel good. When you’ve been running as long as I have, the endorphin rush does not come as often, but nothing makes me feel more vital, let’s me sleep as well or improves my mood as a long morning run. If you are like me, muscle pain is commonplace especially as we push the limits of our training or get a little older.
