Happy National Running Day!

June 5th is National Running Day.  What will you do to celebrate?  I'm planning to hit the treadmill for some speed work, which is coincidentally my favorite run workout. 


Interested in registering for a race?  Check out the Rock 'n Roll series and Women's Running Series.  They're offering $20 off today!

So tell us, why do you run?

  3. Why do I run? Yes to just about all the reasons you listed above. I'm currently struggling with "alone time" since my last week of runs have been w Brewer and/or Abigail. I know the puppy needs to get energy out and I am thrilled Abigail wants to run w me, BUT it's making me crave the solo runs I used to dread. Interesting.

  4. I run for a lot of the same reasons.

    I am celebrating by going for a long run outside (hopefully - the rain must stop or else I am running on the treadmill).

  6. I run for a number of reasons - to improve my cardiovascular health, preparing for an event, weight loss, and for that natural high that comes after a run with you're stoked you met a goal and you glory in the accomplishment.

  7. I started running so I could spend time with my family ( who also run). But as it turns out, I continue to run because it is one achievment that is soley dependent on myself and nobody else. When I get that medal placed around my neck, I know I earned it on my own merrit. ( it may sound silly I know)

    1. While running is a singular sport, it is so easily shared with family and friends. We also love receiving beautiful medals!
