End of Summer Thoughts

August 26, 2008


Can you believe that it’s almost Labor Day? Summer flew by fast, and the question is…did you do all that you wanted this summer? Those little summer goals; did they come to fruition? If not, then it’s time to start thinking of making a goal list for yourself this fall-chances are when you write down when you are trying to achieve, the more likely you are to go for it.

Did you want to hop in a road race this summer, but found yourself making excuses every time one rolled around? What about those last 5 lbs? Too many friends and family in town all the time? Well, this is a little reminder–WRITE IT DOWN, LOOK AT IT OFTEN, AND ADHERE TO IT. If you want to do a race, sign up NOW, so it’s concrete.

With a goal (and it doesn’t have to be a race), your training will take on a new meaning, you’ll have a bit more reason to get up and get out there, get those miles in, get the swimming in, or whatever it may be. As the saying goes, JUST DO IT!

I’m planning on running a Thanksgiving race and a trail race sometime this fall. Definitely will give me the impetus to kick my training into 2nd gear. Anyone care to join me?

Get your list out today and start making plans!

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend! (and don’t drink too much). ;o)

With Love,

    So many people wait for January to make resolutions. I’ve always considered fall to be the a peferct time for a fresh start. I think because it is my favorite season and I have always loved school. I’m always taking classes or working with kids so for me I guess fall is the beginning of the year. The best part is getting a head start from all of the people who will cram the gym in January and then sadly give up only weeks later.
