It’s Springtime! Glorious Springtime!
The temperatures are getting warmer. Trees are budding and flowers are blooming. Sure, there are still incidences of rain, but at least it is no longer cold rain. And the bugs…Gloriously, the multitude of mosquitos that plague us in the summer are still dormant. Pollen in spring in Georgia, however, is definitely an issue, so allergy sufferers take caution. Other than that, it’s a great time to get outside!
Spring is also prime time for road races. There are multiple 5k’s in our area every weekend. I really enjoy doing 5k’s this time of year. There is not near as much before-race prep. The morning may start out cool, but it doesn’t take long to warm up. I don’t have to worry about jackets, gloves, scarves and other winter-related accessories. Rain may still be any issue, but usually a light rain jacket is all that will be necessary.
So put on that breathing mask, keep that rain jacket handy and get outside & run…or walk, or hike, or bike. Whatever fitness you enjoy, it’s time to Spring into Action!
