There’s nothing radder than setting and achieving goals then seeing your life change through your own actions. Here are some tips for successful goal making!
-Set a Date
Put your goal on a calendar when you set precise goals with dates and times. When you set a date with goals, you’ll know precisely when you’ve achieved it and you get to bathe in the warm goal-achieving glow.
Setting small achievable goals will keep you on track to achieve even bigger goals. If you had a goal to start working out 5 days a week, goal set for only 5 minutes the first week. It may sound too easy, but if you can do 5 minutes 5 days a week before you know it you’ll be able to work your way up to 20 mins 5 days a week.
These days social media is all about over sharing, but now’s your chance to use FB for some good. Committing to your goals publicly will hold you accountable, and that’s always half the battle in goal setting.
– Get Excited
That’s right, get excited about your goal! Achieving goals can be hard work, so if you’re not excited you’ll lose steam quickly. Those goals aren’t gonna achieve themselves so get your attitude right and you’ll be crossing them off your list in no time.
Don’t forget to add “Get RAD” to your goal list, then click HERE and just like that, we’re helping you get that goal list achieved!
Have you seen how RAD these can be? And the best part is you can wear them as short as you want, and it’s perfectly acceptable in the running world. We’ve compiled some of our favorite running shorts below, so start wearing short shorts with that runners pride.
*Embrace the Body You Have, Not the Body You Want
Weather it’s the junk in your trunk or extra muffin on your top, quit fighting things and start loving them. You’ll never be the center of a dance circle without the confidence of Beyonce, and we are 100% sure she embraces all her body.
*Look for More Reasons to High Five
There’s little else in this life more satisfying than the crisp slap of two hands meeting. It’s a non-verbal agreement that something has in fact just been awesome. So quit withholding your fives and start giving them out for any small-life victory. Filled your froyo punch card? Yeah that deserves a five. Avoided a grocery store run by finding that last stick of butter? High five, you deserve it. You always deserve it!
*Make Achievable Goals
Nothing makes you awesomely accomplished like crossing something off your life list. And while keeping “become President” on your list of goals is awesome, set some goals that are a little more quickly achieved. Maybe try running a 7-minute mile, baking a Julia Childs meal, or learning to hula-hoop. Get some goals on the paper and then get them crossed off.
*Don’t Be Afraid to Make Mistakes
Making mistakes is a part of life, so quit letting the threat of them stop you from being as awesome as possible. Without mistakes we wouldn’t have chocolate chip cookies, sticky notes, or Coca Cola! Get out there and make some mistakes and live a lot of life. Now come show the world just how awesome you can be by running RAD!

Making the decision to run your first 5K could be your first step to a total fitness
overhaul. It could be the end of a long-term fitness goal. Or the start of a serious
relationship with running. Here’s our list of helpful hints to make the bet of your
-You don’t have to run the whole 3.1 miles. Just because it’s a 5K run, don’t feel
pressure to keep up a running pace the entire time. Add some walking to your run
and you’re still gonna get over the finish line with your head held high.
– Rest; don’t run the day before your 5K. Give your muscles a break before you push
your limits. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated during all 3.1 miles.
-Drink plenty of fluids and eat something light the morning of your run.
-During the run, start at a pace that you feel comfortable with. Don’t feel pressure
from other runners to quicken your pace from what you feel comfortable with. It’s
your 5K so take it at your own speed and time.
And the only thing you need to expect from running a Color Me Rad is to have the time of your life. Enter your email here to get even more fit tips!
