2. Find the person or people who motivates you the best – your coach, top runner on your team, or the fastest person in town. What do they do that makes them fast? What is motivating about them? Ask questions. Get involved. Never stop learning.
3. Be consistent. There’s nothing more detrimental to training than taking an extended “vacation” from running every week. If you want to be a good runner, you have to run. And the more consistent you can be over the years, the better off you’ll be. Think of it this way: miles are like money in a bank!
4. Have fun! Live to the fullest. Enjoy the company you’re with. Take time to appreciate the tiny details. Surround yourself with like-minded people and don’t be afraid to challenge yourself.
