Healthy Tip: Track your progress
I love setting goals for fitness. I find it gives me a sense of purpose when I go to the gym. Gym time becomes quality, not quantity. I know what I need to do to reach the finish line in a race and the effort that I need to put in to get me there. Whenever you do an endurance race, whether it be a triathlon, marathon, or even a 5K, there is a website that lists your finish times. Many people who do these races do not even know their stats are available online. Link to the site at My website is If you have ever competed in a race, type in your name and see what results come up. You may be surprised! Also, if you competed in a race that is outside your home state or country, it will list your name with the state in which you competed. You can track your results and see the progress you've made. Happy training!
