Completing a full or a half marathon is tough, and so is meeting your fundraising goal, but that’s what makes achieving these goals so rewarding. The key to achieving your goals is to keep the long-term big goal in mind, but to focus your energy on making a little bit of progress every day. Set small achievable goals for yourself every week.
For example, if you haven’t been training at least 2-3 times during the week, pick three days and times this week to get out there and do it. Even if you just go for a 1/2 hour stroll, it’s better than not getting out there at all, and it’s the first step toward building a new routine. Then, once you have your new routine, you can think about walking faster or starting to jog. If you are already training mid-week, great! Keep it up, and remember to check the website for tips on midweek runs.
As far as fundraising, our first deadline is to have our pages up by Sunday Oct 19. 2014. That’s just a week away. You can start now by thinking about what you’d like your page to say. If you put some consistent effort in to fundraising, I promise you, you’ll be pleased with the results.
