2013 Fitness Goals & {Color in Motion 5K Discount}

It’s time to put my fitness goals for this year down on paper. Electronic paper. Somewhere for me to look back, remember my goals and make sure I live up to them. This way I also have y’all helping to hold me accountable. So here it goes…

1. Run a marathon. Okay this one may be a little obvious, but last year my goal was to train for a marathon and it only seems right to have run a marathon as a 2013 goal. I’ve never done one before, so I think it’s an awesome goal to have.

2. Get a gym membership. Usually I don’t need to buy a gym membership. I’ve always taught at 24 Hour Fitness or had a gym at my office building. Unfortunately, I’m not at a place in my life right now where I can teach group exercise regularly. I want to, but it’s not reasonable with my schedule. That being said, the hubs and I are getting gym memberships stat!

3. Run 13 races in 2013. I’m already signed up for a marathon and two halves. All I need are 10 more different races. It can even be a 5K! I just want to run 13 different races this year. I’m hoping to include a marathon, half marathon, mud run, color run, 10K and 5K.

4. Go to 1 group exercise class per week. Since I’ll have a gym membership, I’ll have access to group exercise. I love group exercise. It can be any type of class from kickboxing to yoga and step to cycling. I want to experience various class types to help be as an instructor especially since I’m not currently teaching!

5. Attend 2 fitness workshops for my certification. Last year, I struggled to get all my continuing education credits at the last minute for my certification. I don’t have to re-cert until 2014, but again since I’m not actively teaching, I want to be as involved as possible. Who knows maybe I’ll be able to start teaching later this year!

So here’s the deal. I have a way to reach one of my goals for this year and can help you out too! Meet Morgan…

So what is Color in Motion 5k? Color in Motion 5k is the most fun 5k race you will ever participate in. This is is not a timed race so run, walk, jog, whatever your prefer. I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for ways to have more fun. If you can combine having fun with exercise, friends and a great cause, I’m all in. What more could you want? Some great new photos? Well you can get that as well
If you are not familiar with Color in Motion 5k, here’s how it works.
Come in white clothes and start moving.

At every kilometer of the race there is a color pit where our wonderful volunteers throw color on you as you go by. Turning your white clothes into a pallette of color. Like these Color Chasers

What also makes Color in Motion different than your average 5k race is the after party. Afterwards there is a big party with music, dancing, vendors and a color throw.
