Mosquitoes vs. Snow
I have come to the conclusion that there are only about 2 months throughout the entire year that make for a good time to exercise outside. With over 11 inches of rain during the first part of June, we have been inundated by mosquitoes. It makes for a tough evening walk. I try to walk faster thinking that if I do so, the mosquitoes will not be able to catch me. That thinking only makes me sweat more, which attracts more mosquitoes. I am getting a good cross-training workout as I am using my hands a lot to swat the little stinkers away from me. During the winter, I was unable to walk for most of the winter due to icy sidewalks. I'm really starting to wonder which was worse, the cold and ice or the heat and mosquitoes. I am so glad that I have an elliptical to use inside my sometimes air-conditioned home (my wife would leave it off all the time if she had it her way).
