31 Days of Running Inspiration, Day 1
Visit trailrunnermag.com throughout January 2014 for a daily dose of running inspiration, and keep us posted on your daily progress for a chance to win a free book!
Is there anything quite like a new year to get you in the goal-making mindset? For many of us, January offers a metaphorical chance to start afresh. It grants us permission to dream big and often gives us the little push we need to start tackling our goals.
To help keep your motivation high in the coming weeks, we're partnering with Sputnik of The Swashbucklers Club to deliver a small dose of running inspiration to you every single day from now until January 31. Each day on trailrunnermag.com, we'll post one page (like the one above) from his new book, The Swashbuckler's Guide to Running Away from Dinosaurs.
Comment on the daily image and let us know what you did that day to move yourself toward one of your 2014 goals or resolutions, and we'll enter your name in a weekly drawing to receive a free, autographed copy of Sputnik's book.Drawings will take place each Monday, with winners notified via email and announced on Tuesdays on trailrunnermag.com.
Want to learn more about the book? We should probably start by saying that this is one of our favorite books to have crossed our desks in the past year. Its 180 pages are packed with beautiful graphics, inspiring messages and running-related advice, including words of wisdom from "the greats" like Lizzy Hawker, Kilian Jornet, Dean Karnazes, Pat Farmer and more.
In the meantime, enjoy this introductory video from the Chief Swashbuckler himself.
