The past two years, I have committed to running one mile everyday from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve. It's been one of my favorite exercise goals. I have found that sharing my progress on Instagram (by taking a photo of my running shoes and using the hashtag #mileaday) has kept me inspired and dedicated to the venture.
I have decided to embark on #mileaday again this year. The goal is to run just one mile and I'll be starting tomorrow on Thanksgiving morning. Some days Paul will join me. Some days Ellerie (in the stroller) will. Other days it will just be me and a podcast. It usually just takes me just about ten minutes and this year, scheduling it in to my days will be much harder than the actual run itself.
It's a short holiday season this year with just 34 run days. I'm looking forward to making this work and starting 2014 on the right foot (no pun intended) with an active habit already established.
