Doing something fun will keep you motivated, especially when you get results! On our Spark team the Amazing Race Fans, we ran a virtual race around the world via our fitness minutes and by eating fruits & veggies and drinking water. It has been a big success and we are doing it again in July. Contact me if you would like to join in for our next race. Whether you do this or something else, make sure it is something you will enjoy so you stick with it!

Choose a race now for spring or early summer. Start training now! Enjoy watching your skills grow in the coming weeks as you prepare for your event. And when it's race time, take time to enjoy watching everyone run her/his own race. It's an amazing thing to be with a group of people all working to the same goal!
I'm signing up for my first sprint triathlon (swimming, biking, running) in June!
If you're a runner and have been racing (or if you've never raced), try some of the novelty runs they have now. Mud runs, color runs, and electric runs all give you a chance to run just for fun, but still have the community and celebration that racing provides.
