Why You Shouldn’t Make A New Years Resolution

Why you should not make a new year’s resolution!

We all do it every year. As soon as it’s time to turn the calendar, we decide to make an aggressive, life-altering change that is going to make us happier & better individuals.

The rest of the world is a bunch of quitters and typically do not follow through with their resolutions…..But as runners, we are much tougher than the rest. We possess a lot more grit and stick-to-intuitiveness than others. It is important for a runner (of any ability level) to have goals to strive for. It keeps us on track, motivated and focused. It also gives us an overwhelming sense of satisfaction when we knock down the challenge that we set out to.

Race Preview: R U Ready For The Rutgers Big Chill 5K?

The Rutgers Big Chill…one of the great winter races in New Jersey. Don’t believe us??? You can ask the 8300 + participants that have already registered for this year’s race. That number will continue to grow before the starting pistol sounds on Saturday morning in New Brunswick and runners will not be disappointed.

More importantly, the race does amazing things for tons of area children. The entry is a little unique; Instead of a registration fee, runners are asked to bring an unwrapped toy for a child. Last year, the event raised more than 10,000 toys for local children throughout Central NJ and that number is expected to be topped once again.

RunJersey.com caught up with Anne Finetto, the race coordinator. Anne (who was oozing with excitement about the race) took a few minutes away from her planning to discuss the Big Chill with us. She shared her thoughts, noting “It’s an event, not just a race.” Anne …
