Friday Finds is a regular feature in which I collate and share interesting articles and posts on running/health/fitness which I’ve read recently. Some might be inspiring, some might be scientific, some might provoke debate. All are things I’ve found in some way thought-provoking.
Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Another week has gone by and now we’re somehow teetering on the brink of a brand new year! Since this time of year is all about reflecting and setting goals, this week’s Friday Finds brings you a selection of articles looking back over 2017 in running and looking forward to 2018…
Runner’s World shared their roundup of the best running stories from the year. I certainly recognised a few in there:
Similarly, Outside shared their best running moments from the year. Some degree of crossover, but still a great reminder of some of the awesome things that happened this year:
Canadian Running magazine shared both the moments they found most jaw-dropping and a roundup of some of the best running-related books and movies to come out this year. Perfect if you’re still looking for something to do in this weird post-Christmas limbo!
And of course Strava published their year in stats – enjoy geeking-out over the numbers!
When it comes to looking ahead, Motiv Running is helping us with our goal-setting (including some useful questions to ask ourselves to aid reflection on 2017 before planning for 2018).
Canadian Running magazine suggests some running resolutions to give you inspiration:
And Runner’s World is making some predictions for the trends we’ll see in the year ahead. It will be interesting to see if they are right!
However your 2017 went and whatever you have planned for 2018, I wish you the happiest of new years and look forward to sharing more with you in the coming months.
