Can you believe it’s already the MIDDLE of January?
Studies have shown that THIS is the time when people throw in the towels on their “new year’s goals”. Just 2 short weeks is enough for people to give up. What are YOU doing to stay strong with your goals?
I’m into week 6 of my half marathon training and still going strong. This weekend I knocked out 8 miles and loved every second! A friend of mine came a long with me and through conversations and lots of laughs, 2 hours flew by in a blink. My friend Maura has offered to ride bike along with me for my long runs which may make that time go by quickly as well. And of course I still have my main man with me on my shorter runs throughout the week. I love that he’s on board with helping me train. In fact he loves me SO much that he did 4 miles with me in the pouring rain last week!
