3rd Annual National Running Day!

Grab your pals and hit the road! Tomorrow is National Running Day.

Mark your calendars and get your sneakers ready: tomorrow, June 1st, is National Running Day! Even if logging miles is a daily habit for you, share your passion for running with someone else! Schedule a run with a friend who's looking to get in shape, join a running group and meet new workout buddies or hit the road to support a charity. Whatever you do, try to inspire another person to get outdoors and move tomorrow. “Unlike other sports, running requires little to no equipment and can take place almost anywhere. It is an ideal activity for people who want to stay fit or get in shape, relieve stress, and most of all, have fun,” says Mary Wittenberg, President and CEO of New York Road Runners. “Last year there were over 100 National Running Day group runs and events from coast to coast and this year we’re excited to see even more because every runner and each step counts.” Check out to find events in your area, learn 10 ways to celebrate the sporty day in style and discover how to support charitable causes related to running. My motivation to lace up my sneakers? I run because it makes me feel strong and capable of overcoming challenges! Now you tell us: I run. . . _____________________
