If you follow my blog, you would know that I am a runner and nearly certified health nut. I am always interested in ways to help people maintain good health and have fun simultaneously (healthy doesn’t always have to equal boring). Anyway, I just found out about this event taking place here in Columbia and wanted to pass the word. There will be a 5K fun run on January 1st at 9 am. It’s called Commitment Day. It’s part of a nationwide effort to get people to commit to exercise for 2014. The run will begin and end at Life Time Athletic Center on Lee Deforest Drive right here in Howard County.
There are only a handful of races that are held in Columbia and this is the first time I’ve heard of one occurring on New Year’s Day. Pretty exciting if you ask me (of course, as a health advocate, anything that encourages folks to move more excites me). Are you ready to commit? I hope so. Run. Walk. Wog. It doesn’t matter. Just promise yourself that you will take the time to move every day in 2014.
