Winter running can be tough and dangerous, so you have to be careful! I try to follow these tips to stay safe in the snow:
-Go slow. Running in the snow and/or ice is not ideal for speed work.
-Stay away from packed down snow and ice. Slow down and walk if you have to.
-Take your phone with you! Just in case you do fall and hurt yourself.
-Wear/bring chapstick! Nobody likes windburned lips.

Running in the snow is awesome for so many reasons. In addition to working those stabilizing muscles, you get to see some beautiful winter scenery. I found myself smiling on my run just checking out the snowy park and the kids sledding! Also, much like running in the rain, running in the snow is bad ass. You feel super accomplished, knowing that most people are hibernating indoors while you're out getting your sweat on!
