Each Friday I’ll share a popular post from that week’s Michigan Runner Girl Facebook page. If you’re not already part of the MRG community over there, please join us for lively conversation about all things running in the Mitten–looking forward to seeing you there!

How to stay warm during your workout on a snowy 6-degree day (“feels like -10):
1.) Layers. Lots of layers.
2.) Strap on your snowshoes (break out the pair featuring mounted running shoes and smile at your decision a couple of years ago to get these just before your first snowshoe race).
3.) Head to the trails with your dogs. Remind them it’s all about staying in motion. Just keep moving. They bound ahead; they clearly get it.
4.) Run through the deep, fluffy snow.
5.) Walk and savor the quiet of the woods.
6.) Definitely walk the steep hills.
7.) Listen to an inspiring podcast about people pushing themselves “to the edge” — crossing oceans in a 23-foot boat, trekking to the North Pole solo, exploring the depths of the Earth.
8.) Feel badass in your own way. It is frigid out here!
9.) Break trail whenever possible.
10.) Feel so grateful.
What’s your badass winter runner story?
