The absolute best way to keep yourself running is to find a race in the 2020 Annual Race Guide. Just sign up, pay for it, and put it on your calendar. A fixed race date will help you stay focused, and keep you on a regular running schedule. Nothing feels better than crossing the finish line. A beginner can run any race — you just need to allow enough time to train for it. Check back for race updates in each bi-monthly edition.
