I have been motivated to run a half marathon by one of my SparkPeople friends. To make sure I follow through on this, I registered for the race next January and posted it all over Facebook. The more I tell people, the more I have to be held accountable for running in the race.
In order to stay accountable for my running, I registered for a race and told everyone I knew about it! I knew I would not want to let myself down and have to tell everyone that I couldn't complete the race because I couldn't commit to the training.
Have you always wanted to run a marathon but can't quite find the motivation? Register & pay for a marathon as far in advance as possible. There are lots of races that let you register 3 to 6 months in advance. That way if you don't want to lose your registration fee you'll get your butt in gear & have a little extra incentive to get running!
