You might think you don't need ways to start running. physically, no, you just lace up your sneakers and hit the road. However there's first the battle with motivation.
Everyone always loves a good fresh start, and that seems to be something that always helps jump start new goals. Maybe I'm just a crazy goal setter, but I like to start off each month with some goals in mind to try and tackle for the upcoming month ahead. It's never too late to set new goals and start all over again! That’s the beauty of new beginnings. Maybe you're interested in starting to take up running as a goal! If so, these ways to start running will get you laced up and running out the door in no time.
1. Sign up for a Race! (at Least 6-8 Weeks in Advance!)
Get yourself a shiny new race to sign up for in the coming weeks. This is one of the best ways to start running! There’s usually at least one going on wherever you are every single weekend, so you're guaranteed to find one to get signed up and trained for. I know it seems a bit serious to sign up well before you're even considering yourself a "runner" but trust me it does the trick to get you up and out the door! Plus--no pressure in any way to run the entire race! Just being in the environment of other runners makes such a huge difference in creating a new love and enjoyment for your new hobby! Races are my absolute favorite thing ever and motivate me more than anything. Not to win, just to have fun and soak up the race day vibes!
