Survive the Holidays by Training for a Charity Race

Maruchy Lachance is president of Running Ninja!, a lifestyle brand for runners by runners. Running Ninja! offers a wide variety of apparel and gifts for runners to keep you happy and inspired while you’re on the run.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I encourage you to take a proactive role in funding the fight by lacing up and walking or running at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure coming to a city near you!

The holidays are almost upon us and temptation is around every corner. One of the best ways to safeguard your weight and fitness plan is by committing to a physical event that you can train for throughout the holiday season. Many worthy non-profit organizations begin their fund-raising race season at the beginning of each year. Now is the time to find a cause you want to walk or run for and begin training.

If you are a novice, this is your opportunity to get yourself ready to walk 3.1 miles. If you are a competitive runner, this is your chance to improve your finish time. Or maybe you are a walker who is ready to sprint through the finish line! No matter what your fitness level is, by registering and committing to a physical challenge now you can start looking at the holiday indulgence in a different way. This upcoming event can be the focus you need when you are tempted to over serve yourself or skip that much needed workout.

Find an organization, join or create a team. Encourage family and friends to join you on this endeavor to double your success of participating and your fund raising efforts!

The holidays are known for the stress they create. By combining your fitness goals with an upcoming charitable event you will reduce that stress while doing good for others. What better way to celebrate a season of giving than by taking care of others, while also taking care of yourself.
