This post is part of the Run For Fun … or Health series.

There are many reason why a person would need or want to begin running. It could be for sport, health, or shear boredom. Whatever the case might be, you may find it easier if you set a goal to not only stay motivated but also bring more personally competition into the mix.

Your goal could be simple. Perhaps you would like to get rid of the extra 75,000 pounds you have been carrying around. Feeling better and having more energy are always options. Time to relax and not think about the ups and downs of life might be one of your goals – relaxation and meditation cannot be bad for anybody. In the movie American Beauty, the main character starts running. After being asked what his motivation is he states:

I want to look good naked.

Simple and to the point. He set a goal and he stuck to it because he needed to impress himself or others.

Whatever your motivation is, sit down (ok you can stand) and decide why you are running/exercising and what you would like to get out of it. With this information you will be able to see the proper results when they come.
