7 New Year’s Resolutions Runners Probably Won’t Keep


So many resolutions, so little time. So it makes sense to just admit what probably won’t happen. That leaves room for more realistic goals, right? 

Runners are amazing, motivated human beings. But sometimes we need to cut ourselves a little slack. Let’s aim to take on awesomely big goals and poke fun at ourselves when we don’t quite hit the mark on the smaller ones.

Here are seven resolutions that runners might not fully tackle in 2019:

Eating Clean All Day, Every Day

It’s all about balance.


Promising You’ll Foam Roll Right After Running

At least you did it, right?


Stretching After Every Run

Every run? How about most runs?


Not Buying New Running SHoes

They’re for a good cause.


Talking About running to anyone and everyone

Hey, what can you say? You’re passionate.


Signing Up for Weird Races

Fun is good!


Trying to Get your Friends into Running

They’ll love it. How could they not?


Here’s to a fun-filled, goal-oriented 2019 – with a bit of wiggle room for being human.
