With new years less than a month in the past, I wanted to offer up a little motivation to all the beginning runners who started running as a new year's resolution. While living and running in Morocco, I end up seeing all kinds of people out running and doing all kinds of exercises. What is great about this is that they are out there doing something. Many of these people are people you would expect to see on a couch watching lots of television, but they are out in the streets running and trying to change and that is a good thing.
I saw this quote on twitter by professional long distance runner Kara Goucher, "Don't try to rush progress. Remember- a step forward, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction. Keep believing."
If you are struggling with a new year's resolution or any kind of training / exercise program, remember that the hardest part is getting your shoes on and getting out the door.
