Following my typical routine yesterday, I left work and headed for the gym. However, I was shocked at how busy it was! It was full of New Year’s resolution hopefuls getting a jump start on 2013. This got me thinking. It starts off this way every year but, how many of those people are still at the gym come December? So this year why not give yourself a goal to stick with it this year? There is a race of some kind almost every weekend in the DFW area. Why not sign up for one? Grab a friend and run a 5K fun run!

Want something a little more challenging? Cowtown Marathon is coming up at the end of February. This year will be the 35th Anniversary for Cowtown Marathon. Racers can sign up for the Marathon, Half Marathon, Ultra Marathon, 10K, Adults 5K or Cooks Children’s Kids 5K. Running in any of these races will also benefit five Charity Organizations: C.A.L.F. (Children’s Activities for Life & Fitness), American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Team Red, White & Blue. Training Schedules are also available on Cowtown Marathons website for FREE!

Cowtown Marathon is a great way to start out the New Year! See y’all at the finish line! Check out other fun ways to keep your New Year's Resolutions by checking out Fort Worth's Outdoor Activities.
