There were so many races happening last weekend.
Our city held its 20th annual marathon, plus the town where Spouse and I went to college held similar events.
Since he usually heads back there to run a half-marathon with his buddies, I already knew that the kids and I would be holding down the home fort.
Double whammy: I was also on call, which precluded a solid race plan even back at home.
Sitting on the sidelines, though, gave me an opportunity to plan for what’s next.
I also had time to catch up on back issues of Women’s Running magazine, which is typically a great inspiration for me.
These four motivational tips for reinvigorating your running struck a chord:
- Sign up for a race
- Buy new (cute) running clothes
- Try a new route
- Make a new running playlist
Any one of these would do the trick for me.
Love that hot pink!
