There are some nice things that come with winter, usually snow, holiday break, ice skating, etc. Unfortunately, it always seems like January is the hardest month. The sun does rise until 8:30 am and sets by 5:00 pm. We have already passed the shortest day, but not having enough time in the sun has been hard.
This week, I have my Dutch tests. Once I finish those, its time to get back out there running. My next half marathon is planned for March 15th. I hope I will be ready but running in the cold is always a pain.
To be the winter blues, I try to spend time Skyping with family/friends, listening to upbeat music and also getting out the apartment on the weekends.
