The amount of light they get in winter depends on the latitude. At the winter solstice, when the Northern Hemisphere is at its maximum tilt away from the sun, the days can be depressingly short. New York, for example, gets nine hours & twenty minutes of daylight & in London is set to only seven hours & 49 minutes.
Running in the dark is a harsh reality for plenty of in the work of the winter months.
It found further north than any you live in Alaska & anything brighter than twilight for 179 days. The shortage of light in the winter months can have a detrimental effect on our mental state & make us feel lethargic due to melatonin. No wonder that our motivation to run in the dark in the work of winter fades. In addition to energy levels & motivation, vision & balance are also affected.
