1. Lay out your clothes the night before

If you wake up and see your running shoes, sports bra, leggings, snack and water bottle all ready to go, you’ll feel like you’re too invested to change your mind, says Keri Cawthorne, a personal trainer and pilates instructor with the B.C. Parks and Recreation Association for Vancouver and greater area.
