Karen’s next RBF motivational Challenge.

Posted by Filed Under: Running Blogs

What images come to mind when you think about February?
Heart? Passion? Groundhogs popping up to look for shadows?

This month I challenge you to incorporate all of the above into your runs
and workouts, by emulating our Olympic Athletes as they compete in the 2006
Olympic Winter Games in Italy this month. Choose a winter olympian you
admire, follow them like a shadow as they compete, and strive to apply the
same passion and heart to your sport as they do to theirs. Then share your
thoughts about your efforts. You don’t need to necessarily shadow an
olympian of your own country, but here are some places to start, if that’s
what you prefer.

Canadians can learn about your olympians here:
I found the Canadian Olympic Team Handbook link very useful.

and a good site to look up American olympians is here:
