I'm just the opposite: I like getting out for a run in cold weather, but summer heat requires more discipline from me. I keep running, but I'm more likely to want to ride my bike.

My motivation for running is that it keeps me in good condition for the mountains. Also, it reminds me of my dad, who was running since the early 1960's, before they even had "running shoes." Unlike me, however, Dad loved hot weather.

Dad used to say that if you run in every kind of weather, you'll be ready for anything. I live by that.
