2013: Pledge Your Fitness
New Year’s is traditionally a time for making resolutions and reevaluating your life’s goals. There always tends to be a collective eye roll hearing about people’s plans to change the world and bold exclamations of ‘this is my year!’ I’m all for making life changes and committing to goals any time of year and one thing I know about the Spikes and Heels community is that you are a force of badass chicas who constantly set goals, then smash them out of the park.
So, with this dawn of a New Year, presenting new opportunities and challenges, I want to hear what your fitness goals are for the year ahead. My main goal this year is, of course, riding the Etape du Tour, but I’ll be doing the Paris Half Marathon, hopefully a couple of other halves and maybe a full marathon if I can squeeze it in. Ultimately, my overall goal is to get as close as possible to being in pro-athlete condition by the end of the year (I’ll be posting in more details about this in the coming weeks). And of course, I will be doing all I can to support and inspire as many women as possible to channel their inner badass through fitness.
So, what challenges have you set yourself this year? Will you be racing? Taking up a new sport? Get a friend to start running with you? Today I want you to #PledgeIt – let me know in the comments, put it out there into the universe and let’s start 2013 as we mean to go on.
And of course, if you or someone you know is looking to start running this year, I’ve written a beginner’s guide eBook. Check it out.
