On your marks. Get set. GO!
And you’re off.
If you’ve never done some type of fitness event/race, this is basically how it goes. Maybe with a bell or a guy just yelling on the side, but that’s about it. Then you’re on your way to the finish line.
For a lot of people, these type of events “aren’t for them” or they “aren’t in shape enough” or “ready”… But, I’m here to tell you that YOU ARE!
Races / Fitness events are great for a bunch of reasons, and I want you to sign up for one (or 10 lol) today. And I’ll tell you why you can and you should.
It Gives You Focus
Once you sign up, you have to start training, eating, and recovering right. Whether it’s a 5K or a marathon or a Spartan Race, your health and fitness program has to match your end goal (finishing the race).
Every time I’ve signed up for any race, I become more dialed in with my training.
Face Your Fears
A lot of people say, “I’m not ready” “I CANT” “I’m not in shape”… but, trust me, with a lot of these events, there isn’t “a shape”.
I’ve seen people who would be considered “overweight” run marathons, and I’ve seen Seniors run obstacle course races.
It’s not about be better than person next to you, it’s about just pushing yourself to be better. And we can all do that!
There’s nothing better than seeing all your hard work pay off. And that feeling comes at the finish line.
The sense of accomplishment. The sitting on top of the world feeling is almost unmatched.
Run YOUR race. Your pace. And make it to the end, and tell me that doesn’t feel amazing
Are you going to sign up for a race? have you already? Let me know!
