Friday Five: Running in the Spring


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

My Friday Five topic is Five Reasons to Love Spring Running.

It’s no secret.  Spring is my favorite season to run.

 1.   More Hours of Daylight

I have a hard time getting out of bed early enough to run before work.  Now, it is still light enough to run after work.  I love it!!

  2.   Less Baggage

I usually run after work so I have to carry all my running gear to work. Now my bag is so much lighter. No gloves, no jackets, no vests, no tights, no extra layers, etc.

  3.  Prettier Scenery

Flowers, leaves on the trees.  Need I say more?

  4.  Nicer Clothes

Skirts, tank tops.  No jackets over my nice shirts.

  5.  More Racing Ops

In the spring, there are several races to choose from EVERY weekend.
