Woman Up 2016

We made it! Another trip around the sun. As the calendar flips to a new year it’s a natural place to pause. To reflect on the year behind and set your intentions for the year ahead. While this has become a cliché, the whole “new year new you”, it can be spiritual and meaningful to carve out time, to go up into your head and talk it out.

Studies show people who write their goals are significantly more likely to succeed in reaching them then those who don’t. I challenge you to try it, even half an hour to reflect and look ahead. Take pen to paper and write your goals for 2016. Be specific. Rather than ‘get faster’ perhaps it’s ‘take 2 minutes off my half marathon PR.’ Then rough out your plan to get there, setting mini goals and measurable check ins.

Put your stake in the social ground by sharing your goal with #WomanUp2016. Woman up is about making big scary goals and going for them. We’d love to cheer you on as you start the work to reach your goals! We’re sure you’ll find a community near and far ready to support and celebrate your goals. 

If you’d like more goal setting (and crushing) guidance the Believe Journal is it. Written by two professional runners (Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan) and grounded in science, the journal will lead you through exercises to set goals and chase them. There is weekly motivation and thoughtful check-ins. It’s the full human grow journal.  Because goals, even physical ones, have so many more components. Spiritual, emotional and mental.

This Friday, January 1, share your goal with #WomanUp2016 and you’ll be in the running to win a Believe Journal signed by Lauren Fleshman. And don't forget to visit the blog tomorrow for more details on the six-weeks to #runlovechallenge starting January!

#womanup2016

In 2016 I chose to bring more joy into my life. I am going to do that with my family, my career and my running. I want to enjoy my sport rather than dread my training runs, which happened to me towards the end of this year. I want to bring the love of the sport back into my life along with cross training to make me stronger all around.
