Staying active in cooler temperatures and avoiding cabin fever can be quite the challenge. For me, it’s always a balance between the cold and precipitation this time of year. It’s not much different than assessing risk in the workplace.
I always ask a set of questions: What is the temperature? If it is between 30°F and 40°F, what are the conditions of the trails in the park? Is there ice? Are the roads and sidewalks clear? What clothing do I need to keep my skin and body protected?
