Is it just me or is it sooo much harder to stay active in the winter??!
This week started out in the high 50’s with plenty of sun, and I thought to myself “Great! I can go on a long run this weekend!” but in true Idaho fashion … it snowed… for the three days after that. Since my run was out of the question, I thought about hiking instead. Generally hiking in the winter requires snowshoes (or if you prefer, cross country ski’s). But after checking the weather I realized that there would only be about 3″ of snow in most places – meaning, that all I would need would be my snow boots! So I picked a moderately challenging hike that was just a couple miles long, and I was off!!
Looking for winter activities? Try a hike! If that’s not feasible, how about cross country skiing or snow shoeing?? Many areas rent both snow shoes and cross country ski’s for under $20 USD (and that’s for a full day!)
I know it can be hard to stay active in the winter – BUT I promise, that it can also be a TON OF FUN!!!
