5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Running Resolutions

1. Always celebrate a completed run

Even if a personal best is a goal for this year, do not get discouraged if you don’t beat it when you thought you would. Always celebrate your accomplishments, no matter the outcome. You are alive today and should celebrate your health, ability to run, and your fellow runners.

2. Be a social runner

Join a running group! Check our bulletin board, website, ask our staff about running groups in Fort Mill and York County, or join one of our training programs.

4. Be proactive to stay injury free

Sports injuries can easily sideline you for the year. We host medical workshops and have knowledgeable staff that can help you with more tips on staying injury free. Here are three top reasons for injury: wrong shoes, pushing yourself too hard, and not taking enough rest days. If you are interested in these workshops, please let us know here.

5. Volunteer at a race above your level

Volunteering is a great way to be involved with the running community and learn from more experienced runners. Running at a 5K level, then volunteer at a 10K or half marathon. Running a half marathon, then volunteer at a marathon. Run marathons, then consider volunteering at an ultra marathon.
