For beautiful views and motivational snaps this is the account to go to. When it’s rainy and cold outside take a look at the conditions this man runs in. He trains in the snow-capped mountains of Colorado in a pair of shorts. Be both jealous of his beautiful surroundings and glad that you’re probably a lot warmer than he is on your running route.
