Enter a Race or Competition
Even if you have no intention of winning, a race can be a great motivator to get in shape or try a new sport. You can find races for a vast variety of sports and activities as well as training plans on active.com. Find a race at least a few months out and plan your workouts, scheduling them as you would appointments. For increased motivation, sign up for the race and pay the entry fee well in advance.
“I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.” -2 Timothy 4:7
