30 Day Beginner’s Running Challenge

One of my biggest accomplishments in 2015 was running the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon. I made the mistake of not properly training the month prior to the run, so my body hated me a bit. But I finished it and I was so excited that I ended up signing up for the full marathon in 2016. 

I was never big into running. In fact, I hated it. But one day, I decided to go for it and I never looked back. January is that time of the year in which we start making all these resolutions and in many cases, give up by week two. So, this is an easy one. If you're training to lose weight in the new year or just be more active, I strongly recommend you try out this 30 day beginner's running challenge. I guarantee you'll love it. Stay hydrated and enjoy it.
