Try Something New

I am a creature of habit. I love a good plan and I’m a big fan of routine. But sometimes, things can become too routine. Doing the same thing day after day can lead to burn out – especially with running. If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, I encourage you to mix things up and try something new.

If you run solo, try running with a group.

If you typically run roads, give trails a try.

If you’ve only run ‘traditional’ races, check out a relay or obstacle race.

If you always use the same route, try out a new one.

Don’t let uncertainties or fear hold you back. Adventure awaits.

  1. I need a trip to the mountains! Even though I love running, sometimes I am in the mood for a big climb up and I don’t get to do it enough 🙂

  2. Even if you do the same ole route backwards, it’s a whole new experience! And it’s photos like yours that were my favorite part of running — when you are in awe of the amazing beauty out there!
