Baby Goat here... The Head Goat is out of town and I've gone ROGUE!
Let's face it, people, this winter is never going to end! I'm cold, I'm tired, and I do not want to get my butt out the door! I'm tired of washing my running jackets, I'm tired of hunting for the perfect hat for the specific temperature of the day, I'm tired of wet socks... So you know what winter, SUCK IT!
Let me explain to you what I just did there... When I was a high school runner I invented a little game called "1, 2, 3, complain." The concept was very simple, on those days I just didn't want to do it, I would say "1, 2, 3, COMPLAIN" and spend the first minute or so of my run complaining out loud. So put your shoes on and get your butt out the door, start your run by shouting about all the things you're sick of... maybe even throw in a SUCK IT, WINTER! It will get you giggling, you'll have gotten all that nonsense off your chest and you're already through the hardest few minutes of your run.
Dig all your winter gear out and get out the door,
Baby Goat, an admittedly (not quite as) obsessed runner... who can't wait to tell winter how I really feel tonight!
