These days there seems to be a day for everything, but I could not be more excited about this one – National Running Day!! This is every runners dream!! It’s time to kick on those laces and get out there and go, go, GO! No excuses, at least not today 🙂 Even if it is one mile, outside, in place, on a treadmill, on the track, on the trail, slow or fast – it COUNTS!
- Declare your passion
- Bring a”runway” to work
- Invite your friends!
- Make Happy Hour Running Hour instead
- Try a new route
- Give the gift of running *bloggers note: if you are physically unable to run, consider making a donation to an organization that helps to improve the healthy lives of others. I can think of at least one (cough Girls on the Run cough)
- Make it a family affair
- Choose a running resolution
- Enjoy the great outdoors
- Reward yourself 🙂
I plan to celebrate by running 5 miles (for the 5th) AND I just registered for the XTERRA Adventure Series Big Elk Half Marathon on June 22 (and yes, I have every intention of running the Baltimore Women’s Classic the next day, call it a recovery run!) The Elk is an off road course and I’ve always wanted to do more trail running! I know I said I wasn’t going to race long this summer buuuuut I did say it would be about trying new things, right? 😉 And, I get to wear these (my recently broken in trail runners!)
HAPPY NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!! don’t forget the candles on that well deserved cake 🙂
