Running outdoors carries both pros and cons during winter

By Connor Harbit


According to one Door County running enthusiast, residents who are looking to get their daily exercise in this winter would be wise to consider the pros and cons of running indoors versus outdoors. Bob Richards, co-director of Run the Door, said that he prefers running outdoors, but realizes that it might not be the best choice for everyone. He said those interested or continuing to run this winter should consider their own personal health and what they want to get out of their time.





Richards, whose Run the Door program hosts a number of races in Door County throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons, also noted that those who like to run indoors might do so for a couple of reasons. They might do so because of the climate-controlled temperatures or the greater possibility for socializing with others. Richards recommends, if deciding to run outside, always running against traffic and wearing clothing that can be easily seen by others.
