The heat has finally broken and we now have to simply run in perfection. All we need is for the leaves to change here in the mountains to make for even more exceptional running. For most of us, the thought of adding running to our already busy lifestyle seems an unobtainable and therefore an unreasonable concept. But just like the weather has shed its Summer warmth and the trees will soon shed their leaves, we too must shed our old ways make way for a new healthier lifestyle. If ever there were an exceptional time to commit to something new and challenging, it would be when the scenery and temperatures are at their peak.

If you are thinking about starting a new running routine, my suggestion to you is this; find a quiet location you enjoy, select a playlist that you can plug into, wear clothes that you can feel comfortable in, spend enough time to feel like you have exerted yourself but still feel like you can do it again. Drink, Drink, Drink! When you are done, tell the world about it… (tell your world, not the whole world)… Be sure to mention the sights you saw on the run, sounds and music you listened to, how long you ran and where! All of these are motivational incentives that will increase your chances of adhering to your new healthier lifestyle! Lets start here and see where this takes us…
