SMART is an acronym to help you develop a realistic and achievable goal. By understanding where you want to end up you can develop a plan to get you there.
Specific: Complete a 5k
Measurable: 5k=3.1 miles, finish the race
Achievable: yes, this is realistic, I can walk, jog, run
Relevant: this will support my exercise and weight loss
Timed: Sign up for a race so there is a specific date
As you think about your goals remember to be SMART!
