Description

Running can be hard, or at least it isn't always fun. Setting a challenging, but doable goal, can make your running a little easier - giving you something to look forward to and strive toward.

Being successful and reaching your goals, starts with knowing what you want to accomplish, by setting a goal. 

But setting the goal is the easy part. It’s fun to imagine yourself accomplishing your amazing goal, crossing the finish line (or whatever your goal is).  

Making that goal happen is often a lot less fun.

It requires you be honest about what you are willing to do to accomplish your goal. You need to understand why your goal is important to you and be ready for the possible obstacles you may encounter. You have to make a plan and actually do the work.

But if you plan ahead, and consider the why behind your goal, a good running goal will give you a reason to head out the door regularly to run.
