A great Fitness Event run by USMS is Go The Distance! We are almost midway through the year, so if you haven’t done so yet, now is a good time to start.
An article by Ali Hall suggests an interesting motivational strategy: asking yourself “will I?” rather than the affirmative “I will!” favored by self-help gurus. Setting challenging but reasonable goals can help: you might want to consider the Go the Distance program.
