Join us this Holiday Season as we strive to stay healthy and motivated. Commit to working out 30 minutes a day from Thanksgiving to New Year 2013!
UPDATES PLEASE! Who’s still with me..
I know, the New Year still seems far away. With 22 days left till the ball drops, or maybe you’ve already dropped the ball on your commitment to CHASE THE SUN. Either way, I wanted to say HANG in there! You can always recommit today.
Need extra motivation? Recruit someone to run with you. Check out our archived post on Some buddies are made, not born.
Comment below if you are still hanging in there! Let’s continue to encourage each other.
I just love the image above. Looking at it literally makes me wish for fresh white powdered snow so that I can be the first to make the tracks. There’s also nothing quite like seeing my warm breath in the cold air and feeling the sun’s rays hit my cheeks. Ahhh, this is winter running at its finest.
Then I give myself a reality check and say to myself, “You hate the cold!” It’s amazing how a simple picture can get us motivated, but what actually gets us out the door to run? Honestly, during the Holiday season, running just doesn’t make it on our to-do list. We have ample reasons to procrastinate when it comes to our health: year-end work deadlines, holiday parties, and shopping. So, what do most of us do? Hibernate. We start skipping workouts and start eating what we normally don’t eat.
In comes the New Year! Where we’ll decide we have to make a change. But, what if we can prevent hibernation mode before it happens?
CHASE THE SUN
So, how do we stay committed to our daily routines and still have time for everything else? Well, for starters it takes planning, and secondly, a community with the same goals. The planning you’ll have to do, the community is where we come into play. This year we’ve decided that in order to get through the holidays we need to make a commitment. Our goal is to workout everyday for at least 30 minutes a day. We are calling it, “Chase the Sun.” Starting November 22nd (Thanksgiving day) until New Year 2013 we are making a pledge to go outside and “Chase the Sun”.
