Start a tradition… of fitness!
Pick one day or one special occasion and initiate a fitness tradition. Begin with friends and family, and then invite neighbors, coworkers, and others from there. Perhaps a 2 mile walk on a designated route or time, or a 4 mile bike ride to a special destination, or maybe a 2 mile hike to an inspiring look out or peak. Let your imagination go and see where it takes you!
To get started:
Designate the same day each year. Planning your fitness tradition to happen on a holiday, or particular day each year, allows others time to plan to take part.
Follow a designated mileage or duration. A set goal or miles or duration allows everyone to train and prepare for your tradition.
Include the FUN. Add music, fun costumes, special invited guests or snacks! The sky is the limit.
Choose a person or cause to honor with your tradition. Honoring a special cause or person gives the tradition value and purpose.
