•Avoid running on the roads in snowy conditions. Drivers have a decreased ability to maneuver and stop.

•Winter means fewer daylight hours. Wear bright-colored, reflective clothing or a reflective vest so you are noticeable to area traffic. For added visibility, wear a lightweight headlamp or flashing light.

•Wear layers of clothing that will help you maintain your core body temperature during the run but will keep you warm during warm-up and cool-down phases.

Mather,_Carolyn.jpg__.jpgAs we enter another season of marathoning, I thought I would share what I have found to be the very best recovery tips after having finished 114 marathons. Although each of us has a variety of recovery strategies, I find that the following methods work but are often not followed. Plan to try all, or at least some, of the following after your next marathon. Your body will thank you.

Crossing the finish line is an emotional experience. Regardless of your time, you have completed 26.2 miles. Your body has gone the distance and after congratulating yourself, there are two key elements that need to be done immediately.
