We get it. It is incredibly difficult to get yourself motivated to run this month. First off, if it isn’t freezing and snowing outside, it’s freezing and raining. That’s enough for anyone to give exercise the cold shoulder. Couple that with several overstuffed holiday meals and you’ve got yourself a recipe for laziness.
