A little peer pressure can be a good thing.
With that said, it’s time for me to make a little announcement and for y’all to help hold me accountable. And hopefully, a few of you will join me as well.
For the month of August, I’m planning on running a minimum of a mile each day.
On the surface, this really isn’t that daunting. I’ve done streaks of a month or more before, but this one will be a little different.
First and foremost, it’s August and I live in Central Florida. I’m pretty sure I don’t have to connect those dots for you.
Second, I am still adjusting to life with a baby. Sleep is sporadic and oft interrupted, which makes it difficult to get out of bed for early morning runs .
Third, I’m heading to Dallas for a few days mid month for a podcasting convention. I’m really looking forward to this trip, but I’ll be busy, it’ll be hot, and I’m not sure how conducive the area of the hotel will be for running.
I could probably keep going with the excuses, but why bother? It’s time to suck it up, and make it happen.
And honestly, no matter how hot it might be, running a mile is completely doable.
Who’s With Me?
A challenge like this is much more fun with others.
Will you do it with me?
Jon Howard, who you may remember from a recent podcast episode, is putting on this challenge through his company Training Edge Sports.
The challenge is simple, just run or walk a mile each day for August, and I would love it if a bunch of you guys would join me in completing the challenge, and representing the Diz Runs Tribe en masse. All you need to do to “officially” take part, is just click over to the TES Facebook page, and join the challenge.
And shoot me a tweet letting me know you’re in, so we can hold each other accountable.
Go join the challenge. Now!
Remember, peer pressure is no fun until you give in!
Join my Tribe!
