Ever line up next to that guy wearing shorts and gloves at a December Jingle Bell Jog? After the race starts you think you are doing ok, so you just stay with him for a while. Long about the first mile split the race is over for you and you just coast the rest of the way, getting one of your worst times. Wouldn’t it be great to start pulling away from this guy in the last mile? Well here are some little tricks that just might make that happen. On your daily runs start off from the very first step going your absolute fastest. Try and keep this up for at least a quarter mile.

It seems like my runs are shorter on the cold winter days. I ran a nice little 10k today, my longest run in a while. In the summer I might run 5 or 6 miles every day not just on the weekends. I hate to admit my long runs in winter are just 5 or 6 miles.
Bit of a chilly run today. It is 13 degrees and windy. I wore two layers of everything including gloves. I like those big fuzzy yellow work gloves with the black cotton work gloves inside. My hands stay warm at any temperature with those. Over a t-shirt I had a hooded sweatshirt with a vinyl windbreaker. I also wear a stocking cap under the hood. I hate those stocking caps that keep sliding down over your eyes. I also remove the string on hood or stuff them in side so they don't swing back and forth sometimes hitting your cold cheeks. On days like this I wear two pairs of runners tights.
