    I tend to run more often in winter.

How...Why... Who would do this to themselves? I hate running in the winter!

I keep asking myself the same thing... My explanation is this: in summer, there are other/more fun things to do outside that I cannot do in winter (like rock climbing).

My schedule tends to declutter itself starting november and stays pretty stable and predictable till about march. And since I go running with a colleague of mine, it becomes easier to sync our schedules and go for runs together.

An additional factor, winter seems to affect me pretty badly in Germany. I get stressed faster and my mood suffers from it. Running helps against the stress and mood swings.

edit: AND, running at -10°C next to a partially frozen at dawn is damn majestic.

I bet he is fine in winter. The only swings this guy gets in winter are those of FUCKING HUGE SPEARS KILLING DRAGONS FUCK HIM.
