I'm with SONDRA also. Here in Houston we've had a few cooler morning, below 70. The next 5 months are our best running season. Most of our marathons and half marathons are in January, February and March. Houston runners get really excited about how easy running is during this time of year. For some reason we seem to be able to run farther and faster.

My hiatus was also over the summer this year in the Chicago area. Last winter was my first time out running in the cold - although it was a VERY mild winter for my area. I'm looking forward to some cool running this year as well.

Kudos for having an alternative plan for the cold months!

My hiatus was over the summer when it was just too hot for me. In southern NM we have some days that are too cold and some days that are mild. RIght now it's perfect! But I don't run as much right now because hiking this time of year is my passion so I run one to two times a week. Soon the snow will be on the mountains above us where I hike and I won't to get to do that as much and hopefully will get back to running more.

I'm similing as I read this thread because here in Florida it is finally getting delightfully cool and those of us who toughed it out and ran through the heat of the summer are breathing a sigh of relief and looking forward to 6 to 7 months of great weather for running!

I'm smiling all the more because I come from Chicago where we know all about miserable winters!!

I will be running a lot less running in the winter. Even with spikes on my shoes, gloves and other winter equipment I often don't like dealing with the runny nose I get when running outside. Blowing my nose when I'm walking is ok, but bothers me when I'm running. I'm going to do some snowshoeing, uphill hiking and some swimming instead.

You don't need to leave the team if you want to take a hiatus. Weather is still fine here in CT. The cold doesn't bother me; but icy and snowy roads are too dangerous to run on.

OK. It's official. It's now too cold here for me to appreciate outdoor runs even vaguely and I HATE TREADMILL RUNNING. It's time to change from runner/would-be runner to Nordic Walker. Nordic Walking (adding upper body work to the walking routine) has been my fall/spring outdoor cardio for a number of years. So, good-bye Master Runners SparkTeam, hello Nordic Walkers till it's time for running re-training in 5 or 6 months. It's been swell on this team, and it'll be swell again next year.
