Sticking with a workout plan has nothing to do with discipline. Its all about feeling obligated to others. Second to loathing your own body, a healthy serving of peer pressure is the best motivator. Thats why the Road Runner Sports Monthly 5k Run has high potential for long-time commitment. Show up, make friends, and sweat away your fat. Then, next month, go back for more. In the meantime, build those relationships by joining their shorter, weekly Thursday-night jog. Youll do it, too, because you dont want to look like a flake to your new friends, do you?
