A Seasonal Funk!
In Hood River, OR we have had an inversion going on. It is beautiful and sunny in Portland, on Mt Hood, and south of the mountain, but here, it has been cloudy and so cold. I have been plugging thru all of this rain and snow and the muck that comes after the snow, but this grey is KILLING me! I am still running in the dark. The only time my partner and I can go is before our husbands go to work. So we start and, right now, finish in the dark. Oh and did I mention that it is really cold? Needless to say that our long runs have been so painful. So much so that I know that if I weren't meeting her there is NO WAY I would get out of bed and go. I am pretty sure that I have a little bit of seasonal depression and I just went out and got a Vit. D supplement. I am hoping that it will help some. Does anyone else have this problem and what are you doing about it? I would love some insight. Thanks my fellow moms and runners!
