Setting Running Goals

Greetings from San Diego! I am attending the Sought-After Speaker Mastermind Program retreat with my fabulous business coach, Caterina Rando, this week. And in the spirit of setting goals, I thought I would share some thoughts with you on setting running/walking/fitness goals you can actually achieve. 

Define your Goal


Where do you want to go? What do you want to do?  Do you see it clearly in your mind? Visualize exactly what it is you want.

Create a Plan


Once you know where you want to be, how will you get there? Do you have a plan? If your goal is to run or walk a 5k, half marathon, or even a full marathon, I can help you with that. Reply to this email for more info. 

Break the Plan Down into Incredibly Small Steps


Goals are just a string of tiny habits strewn together. Yes, looking up the whole staircase can be daunting.  But the staircase is just an accumulation of individual steps. Take one step at a time. 

Tell Others


Share your plan with friends. Better yet… recruit them to join you! The best way to accomplish a goal is to surround yourself with people who support and share your goal.

Be Patient


Sometimes you will get off track. Life happens. Don’t let that discourage you. Instead, work with it. Realize that the real goal is not this one race, but rather lifelong habits that will help you stay fit for the rest of your life.


What goals do you have for yourself in the coming year?
