We know how hard it is to stick to those New Year’s resolutions—you keep putting them off, and before you know it, it’s Thanksgiving again, and those vows to hit the gym or limit your chocolate intake are delayed for yet another year. Why not get on the right track quickly and start the year with a run? Chances are you’ll feel so good that it won’t be hard to keep up the momentum.
