After the 5k, Keeping Motivated

For those of you who participated in Power Up for PCOS' 5k last weekend, thank you SO much for your support!  What a great way to go out into our community and not only get some physical exercise, but also to show support and bring awareness to the PCOS community.  It was great talking with other women at the 5k, fun to wear the shirts and see others talk about it as we were walking or running.  It is even greater hearing stories after our 5k of women who didn't know our group existed and have been struggling with PCOS for years.  These women now have a place to turn to gain education and support from those who understand what they are going through.

I just want to encourage you to continue exercising regularly and find a way to fit physical activity into your schedule.  Whether you continue training for 5k's, go walking regularly with a friend (or your dog!), or just sit down and schedule out your exercise times each week.  Taking that first step and finding what works for you is super important if you want to keep it up in the long-run. Here's a great website I found to search for races in your area.  Just type in your zip code, select the type of race you're looking for and hit search.  This just might be the type of motivation you need to reach your next fitness goal.  Good luck!
