We all know the rhyme: 30 days has September, April June and November, all the rest have 31 – except for January which NEVER ENDS. The bank balance is as low as the temperature and your waistband is still reminding you of Christmas time.
But now is not the time for those New Year Resolutions to dwindle. Coming to the end of January also means we’re coming to the end of the Early Bird Prices for Race Entries. Keep the New Year momentum going by giving yourself a goal of a race, without hurting the pockets.
