Accountability is huge when it comes to weight loss, but it's also important to have accountability for physical activity. One form of accountability is to sign up for a local walk/run event. These events, races or runs, whatever you call them, are tons of fun because there are loads of people there to encourage you along the way. Sign up with a friend and make it a social event too!
Most events are for charitable causes where the small entry fee is a donation. Even with a little investment, the accountability is higher than no investment to keep the commitment to participate.
The first few months of 2013 are packed with events on the calendar. Below are a few for the first few months, but click HERE for more details & and all inclusive list of events around and in the Indianapolis area to keep you accountable. You could realistically sign up for one or more events each month to keep you on track with your physical activity goals!
