In the winter it’s much harder to get motivated to go out for runs in the week. I work full time and it’s dark in the morning, and dark in the evening. I am limited to running round the streets. While this is not my favourite terrain – it’s hard on my feet, and tripping on a paving stone is a real risk – there are some compensations. Coming up to Christmas the lights and decorations in people’s windows and gardens make running round Ealing after dark much more enjoyable.
Have a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa if those are festivals you celebrate, or perhaps just a lovely celebration of friends and family.
