I'm from Wisconsin and would like some friends around my area. Seems like most of my friends on here are from warmer states and don't know the struggle of the changing seasons

    I live in TX, but I'm from WI and just got back yesterday from a visit to Kenosha. It is a struggle to get out when the weather is cold and rainy (like all last week!), but I've become an expert at excuses everywhere I've lived. Down here it's "I'm so sick of the gym, but it's too hot to exercise outside!". My new attitude toward excuses is helping and I really, really enjoyed going for a long walk/run on the trails up there with the beautiful fall leaves and cooler temps.

    Good luck this winter though - I hear it's supposed to be brutal!! ;)

    I started in the Chicago suburbs, then moved to Winona MN, and now live near Milwaukee WI. I am lucky that I have a health club in the clinic where I work, which is only about 6 miles from my house. Feel free to add me as a friend :)

    Another Wisconsinite here. Struggling with trying to figure out how to keep the momentum up through the winter since my bike doesn't handle snow. Feel free to friend.

    I live in Iowa... I get it. It isn't just the cold and wind chills in the midwest, though. Our summers are very hot and humid as well. I remember once in July, I was in Houston. I flew back into Des Moines - it was 93 degrees in Houston that day. It was also 93 degrees in Des Moines. Immediately upon exiting the plane, my glasses fogged up and the air was noticably heavier to the extent that I could tell as I breathed that it was more humid. That makes a bigger difference on comfort than some people realize.
