Cold Weather Running Quotes

Ever since I started running again back in 2007, I have struggled with cold weather running.  It is difficult to get my muscles warmed up and breathing in near freezing temperature air is misery. To relieve my cold weather running experience, I frequent the gym more often and run out my miles on the treadmill. Treadmill running has its perils too, but at least it's hot. :D

I stumbled upon a few running quotes that really got me motivated to get back out on the cold concrete. Last night I ran at the gym. Today, it's back to road running. I'll save the treadmill for snow days. ;)

"There's no such thing as bad weather, just soft people". - Bill Bowerman

"This is about doing something difficult and not stopping when it becomes not just difficult, but cold and difficult... or cold and wet and difficult... or cold and wet and dark and difficult." - Suzy Hamilton

"Runners don't get rained out, they get rained on." - Unknown
