I got to admit, it was last nights movie choice found by my sister Mel ‘Brittany Runs A Marathon’  that pushed me over the edge… the edge towards exercise and falling into the decision to start running again. 

It may have also been a follow up email from Nikes PR asking me if I’d like to do the new year running program with them and their head coach with Nike Run Club (thanks Molly!!), the timing was too perfect to ignore.

But Brittany got us good. I mean she nailed taking control of her life and sticking to her challenge, you literally couldn’t watch it and NOT need to start running the next day just to take life by the balls, you know? Well watch the movie… trust me.

And also, sign up to the program NOW as it starts tomorrow.
