Fall is fast approaching and that mean cooler weather, rain, and eventually snow before we know it. This doesn't mean you need to stop exercising outdoors actually being outdoors during this time of year is a great idea. Mother Nature can be a great motivator for you during your journey. Walking/Running during these fall months is very enjoyable because you get to experience the beauty of the changing of the seasons. Those of you who know me know that I love the outdoors especially when it comes to running. I love a winter run in the snow early in the morning just me and God. It is a time that you can listen to the quiet and calm of the morning before you begin your daily hustle and bustle with children, work, dog, and the hectic life.
There are plenty of warm outfits at your local sporting goods store to keep you from getting too cold. Don't let the air stop you from enjoying life outside of your house. Also in our area on Facebook there are "Garage Sale" pages for each of the surrounding counties and I'm sure you can find expensive Under Armour workout apparel along with Nike. I see them all the time and if you don't see them just ask. I ask all the time if someone has something and 9 out of 10 times I get a response. I just purchased a Pack n' Play in less than 10 minutes on Facebook yesterday for $ 15.00! It is fully loaded. Also if you want to start your own little home gym this is another way to build a gym at an inexpensive cost.
Winter is inevitable but don't pack yourself or your children in the house just yet. Get out enjoy this great weather and be active with your family. Take the family out on the trails, help your kids with their science projects (finding leaves), and most importantly set an example for them. Also check your local area for 5K runs. Mallow Run Winery located in Bargersivlle, IN will be hosting their annual 5K and 5 Mile walk on October 1, 2011. It's a family event so check out the details at Mallow Run.
