Spring Tip #3 - Sign up for a 5K or 10K fun run/walk.

With the warmer weather just around the corner there are plenty of these types of fun runs or walk in the pipeline. Just pop whatever city you live in along with the words fun runs 2015 eg. Auckland fun runs 2015, into your search engine and check out which ones you would like to sign up for. 

If you sign up early, it gives you motivation to get out there and start training. Having an exercise goal is a great way to get in or stay in shape. 

As an extra bonus, many of these fun runs raise money for charities so you can do good for your community as well as yourself!

This weeks recipe may look like it has a lot of ingredients in it but it is definately worth it and doesn't actually take very long to prepare. It is also family friendly, although you may want to leave out the chilli if you have young kids.
