Setting a Running Goal

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is only three weeks away which means it’s the perfect time to check in or set some goals.

Training Goals:
How has your training been going? Do you need to set some goals to get out and train more? How about some goals to stretch after every walk/run?
Tune in to what you can do to make each training session easier and more effective and to what you can do now to prepare yourself for the ultimate event day experience. Sure, you can push yourself to finish – but wouldn’t it be great to finish feeling great!

Event Day Goals:
For me, when it comes to Run day goals I always like to set three.
1. That is my ultimate race experience goal. If everything goes off without a hitch what would be my ultimate finish time.
2. What’s a finish time that I would be happy with? Sure it’s not your ultimate goal, but it’s something that is still challenging, but doable.
3. The third goal never has anything to do with my Run day performance. It’s often a goal about having fun, taking a really great finish line photo. Thanking 10 volunteers on course. Giving 5 kids cheering high-fives. Something that is total doable, and will leave you and in some cases others feeling great.

Fundraising Goals:
What is your personal or team fundraising goal and how will you accomplish it? My goal is $300. Help me make it by donating here.
What are some creative and fun ways you can achieve them? How about:
• Hosting a BBQ in your neighborhood and charging $3 a hotdog or hamburger,
• Have your kids set up a lemonade stand,
• Take some of your old clothes to a local consignment shop and put your profits towards the CIBC Run for the Cure, etc.

Or maybe your goal is to get involved: Register to walk or run, Donate or give your time and Volunteer.
Whatever your goals are, the best way to make them happen is to share them! Join the conversation on Twitter or Facebook and share your goals with others.
