The beginning of the year is a great time to be a runner. First you can look back over your just completed year and relish in each and every mile you have run and relish those races you finished. But even better, it seems, is the possibilities that a new year brings! No matter how your prior year turned out, a new year allows you to dream and wonder how much faster and stronger you can be.
But there’s a small problem that can happen as soon as you start to dream. In this episode we work through that with some guidance on how best to think of a new year, how to properly set your goals, and what you can do now to be even healthier and stronger at the end of this year than the one you just finished.
You won’t want to miss these four tips that you can implement now to do just that.
We invite you to download this week’s episode and take us along on your next run. Then check out our past episodes to learn even more!
This is another episode following our Motivation Mile format, meaning that we want to share with you the motivation you need, encourage you on your way, and provide those critical running tips to help you on your own running journey – all in the time it takes to run a mile. And if you’re wondering, we do answer all those questions during our short mile.
Finally, we appreciate our sponsor – Great 8 Virtual Races. As we mention in this episode, they have introduced their 2018 Running Tour T-Shirt – an awesome way to share your miles and races from this past year with everyone you meet. This personalized shirt will allow you to share with more than your Strava and social media followers. You put in the blood, the sweat, the tears, and all the work this past year – make sure you showcase it everywhere you go. Make sure to use discount code NEWYEAR (no spaces) for $5 off your shirt – and all shipped free to you!
