|picture reused from this old boston post. i just reread it and cracked up. did i think i was a tour guide or something?!|
I have a gym membership I never use. My running shoes have been pushed to the back of my closet. I even bought all three episodes Jillian Micheal's 30 Day Shred so I wouldn't have to leave the house to exercise. I've done each episode once. At first I blamed the weather, but then realized it wasn't that. I just have no desire right now.
So I reached out to Janae of The Hungry Runner Girl for some tips to get motivated to exercise. I couldn't think of a better person to ask. In 2012, not only did she give birth to a beautiful baby girl, but seven weeks later she ran a PR at the San Jose Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon. My goodness, I hope 2013 isn't a huge let down for her! haha But seriously, how did she have the energy to do all that? Way to go.
Out of the five tips she gave me, my favorite was sign up for a race. It helps her to have an event to train for. Plus, she hates to waste money on a race she's not prepared to run. Makes sense. I know for a fact I would have never ran so much last year if it wasn't for the marathon. But I'm ready to try something new. Anyone training for a non-running event?
Thanks Janae for taking the time to write the five tips! Your story is so motivating.
