What is Global Running Day?
“Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. Participation is easy—just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 1, 2016. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids. The key is to share your passion for the sport and inspire others to get moving.” (Source: GlobalRunningDay.org)
Despite how slowly I have been moving in the 8th month of pregnancy, I made sure to get out there and at least run/walk today to enjoy one of my favorite paths but to share my passion for the sport. In honor of today, I wanted to share my post from last year on why I run and how I got started with the sport. Running never came easy for me, especially distance running and I am grateful each day for the ability to put one foot in front of the other.
I hope no matter the distance or speed, that today, you try to get outside for a run! Use this time to think about all of those that have inspired you to lace up your sneakers and enjoy the time with yourself and/or friends and family. And if you get the chance, check out Brooks Global Run Happy Report for this year. There are some really cool facts in there about this awesome sport. Happy reading and happy running!
Happy Global Running Day!
