Tip of the Month: How to Find Time for RunningYou may have set some great New Years resolutions to run more or just exercise more in general, but how do you find the time to actually do just that? This month's tip comes from RunningPerformanceTraining.com and features some ideas to make sure lack of time isn't the reason you're not reaching your goals this year!
