Races are a fun way to get active in a group setting, whether with strangers or friends and feel accomplished when you cross that finish line. Whether you are in first place or near the end, the feeling of finishing a race is priceless and a great feeling of accomplishment.
Ultimate Bootcamp, we've been on the rant about getting outside and into the fresh spring air. Well, spring may come late this year, but we're confident it will come at some point. Need more motivation to stick to your healthy fitness routine?
Sign up for an upcoming spring race. Signing up in advance will give you an end date to lead up to and prepare so that you'll be ready go at the starting line. This will help motivate you to stay on track and work hard so you'll be ready to go on race day!
