Tips for running in the winter dark.

Tis the season for hot cocoa, warm fires, fleece lined boots and snowmen. And darkness. Lots and lots of darkness. And very few available daylight hours.

This mentality of checking off the boxes, ultimately leads to sub optimal performance on race day. Then the head scratching starts. Illness is an experience we all have in a season. How you deal with illness during training can be a variable that can make or break your race day performance.
