BRING IT ON!

Today is the first full day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and, as runners, it's time for us to say, "Bring it on."

Of course, that's a little easier to do this year, with record high temperatures expected to greet us here on the east coast for the next week or so.

Remain focused. Build up your base miles. If icebox conditions exist, or snow or ice hits, adjust, adapt, and relax. Dress properly, begin your workout into the wind, then keep it to your back on the way home. Race infrequently, then emerge in March, refreshed, with a solid mileage base, ready to crush personal best times at every distance.

Lastly, heed the advice of the Flying Finn.
