Stay healthy so you can still get outside!
Trail maps at your local outdoor recreation store should give you access to a previously unknown network of trails and natural resources in your surrounding area. If you live by mountains or forests (which many people surprisingly overlook on their way to work), you'll be pleasantly surprised to find some amazing trails hidden from plain sight.
If you do usually hike, bike or run in the summer on trails, buy a pair of snowshoes or ski mountaineering/AT touring skis to cover more ground. Ask around at your local shop for tips about what gear works best in typical local conditions.
Look up events like Hot Chocolate runs, trail races, obstacle course races, and outdoor group workouts.
The internet has made it easier than ever to find "fight club" like groups that don't advertise extensively, but do offer group workouts or events that make it a little easier to get up early when there's a group of friends waiting to see your smiling face.
