When I was growing up in Austin, Texas, my friends and I would run the Capital 10k nearly every year. It was just for fun, and Chloe, my best friend from age 2, would stop at 7-11 and get a Slurpee mid-race. When I say we did this just for fun, I mean we really did this just for fun.
I travel back to my homeland for work often, and I’ll be in Austin this April for a few national college fairs and recruiting events. As luck would have it, I’ll be in Austin during the weekend of the Capital 10k. So, I’m signing up. I’m stoked. I have been training for an Olympic distance triathlon in May, and this will be the perfect way to make sure I stay on track. I even found a focused, 8 week training program for a 10k. So awesome! I’m pumped!
How do you stay motivated?
