Thank you to everyone who is joining us for the 30×30 challenge! Today is the day, so if you haven't already gotten out there… quit reading this and go run! Now!
For everyone else, we understand if you're sitting on the fence. You want to join the challenge, but there's a pocket of fear or doubt in your mind that's holding you back. Well guess what? That's great! The fear of a challenge is good. We all need a bit of healthy fear in our lives to push us out of our comfort zone, and help us grow as athletes and as people. Embrace that fear. Use it to push you out the door each day.
Embrace The Elements
Worried about a little rain? With the right gear, you'll be unstoppable. Can you only get out when the sun has gone down? Reach out to your 30×30 community (Strava, Facebook, Timber & Tor runs) to see who's available to buddy up. Not sure if you can make that time commitment? Watch one less episode on Netflix, or wake up 15 minutes earlier and go to bed 15 minutes later. In the grand scheme of things, 30 minutes is not much, so take that excuse right out of your vocabulary!
30 is all you need
Depending on your current activity level, the distance you'll cover varies greatly, so don't worry about how far you get, or how difficult you make your route in the beginning. Go slow to go fast. Before you know it, 30 minutes will take you farther faster, you'll be happier and feeling quite proud of what you've accomplished. Trust us, you'll be thanking yourself for joining in on this adventure. And that's exactly what it is. An adventure.
The Support System
We have a great support system set up for you, so take advantage of it. Track your runs in the spreadsheet (and Strava if you can), check out our Strava and Facebook groups, join us on a Timber & Tor group run, and come in to the store as often as you like to check in, or just chat — we have a wealth of information, motivation and inspiration to keep you going. We want to see you succeed!
Now, you too, can stop reading this and get out the door! But first, make sure to sign up to hold yourself accountable! Your $30 today turns into a $50 gift certificate when you complete your 30 days. That’s just icing on the cake.
