Staying Motivated! Fun Events! Sign up for a 5K

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you had a beautiful weekend.

One of my favorite things to do is participate in a 5K. It’s such a great way to celebrate all your hard work and enjoy a day connecting with others. There is often a health and fitness expo to visit before and after the event that makes it even more fun. Most races give out goodie/swag bags. I always love to see what fun things are included – my favorite is the t-shirt.

After losing so much weight over the past year (read more about that here), I added running back into my exercise. I am really enjoying Jeff Galloway’s Run-Walk-Run Method. His method makes it fun and doable for anyone. You don’t have to run the entire time and with the walk breaks my mile split times are actually faster. I recommend his book The Run-Walk-Run Method by Jeff Galloway. In the book he explains the method and there are training programs to follow. Jeff’s website is also a great resource

I’m currently training for a 10K and in the middle of the training one of the weekends can be a 5K. So this weekend I’ve signed up for the El Segundo Run For Education. If you are in the Southern California area and are free this Saturday then come on out for a fun run. Read all about the event and sign up by visiting the event website
