If you want to maintain or even improve your running fitness in the fall and winter, you’re either going to make friends with the treadmill or you’ll have to find a way to make peace with the cold and dark.

I’ll show you how.

On today’s show, we are going to explore how you can get ready for fall and winter running.

You’ll learn:

  • Tips to stay motivated and run safely in the dark
  • Exactly how to dress in any kind of weather for any kind of run, and
  • I’ll share my personal experience with a condition that many runners face this time of year, especially women.

Even if you’re like me, a die-hard summer lover, you’ll be completely prepared for any condition Mother Nature can throw at you.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Practical and interesting podcast

I recently found the podcast and binge on all the episodes. All the episodes are interesting with approachable advise. As a plant based runner I’m thrilled by the advise on plant based nutrition tailored for runners. I found that most running coach include animal products. So I’m so happy I found the Planted Runner.
