The new year is upon us and many people including myself are thinking about changes for the upcoming year. Some people merely wish for improvement while others set serious goals and make commitments. In an effort to get me out of my comfort zone, I just signed up for the Spartan Beast Race.
For those of you not familiar with this, it is essentially a half marathon mixed with 25 different obstacle courses or challenges along the way to slow you down. It's not the kind of activity where you want to show up unprepared. I'm looking forward to this event and I'm grateful I still have 6 months to prepare. Maybe I'm going through a mid life crisis, but at least it's more affordable than buying a Harley Davidson.
Make a commitment to do something new this year that will challenge you. Working towards a new goal will make you a stronger person.
