Once you do, though, itâ€™s well worth it. I find winter runs to be some of my best: thereâ€™s no humidity so itâ€™s much easier to breathe, the streets are less crowded, and once you warm up you can go as long as you want without getting all sticky and sweaty.
I am packing as many great listens as I can into the shortest month of the year! Here is what I am listening to at home, at work, and when I am on the move.

As Autumn comes to a close, I tend to seek out heartwarming listens that help fend off the cold. With that in mind, I picked up Lauren Grahamâ€™s Talking as Fast as I Can. Whatâ€™s more delightful to a Gilmore Girls fan than hearing from a Gilmore Girl? Read more
