Well 2013 has almost come to an end and that can only mean people are going to start focusing on their 2014 New Year’s Resolutions. We all make them and (to be completely honest with ourselves) we all break them. I think the key to sticking to a New Year’s resolution is to build on where you are already. If your goal is to start running but you don’t workout yet, maybe you want to think about committing yourself to at least an hour and a half of exercise per week then look into a run/walk program like this one. Maybe your goal is to run faster and qualify for Boston (like someone I know…) maybe focus on speed and shorter distances in the spring and set your sights on a goal fall marathon. Maybe you want to get stronger, lose weight, eat healthier, work on staying in touch with far-away-friends. Whatever it is, focus on where you are already and build on that. Then you won’t be setting yourself up to fail and you can stick to your resolution. Happy New Year!
