Today is National Running Day!

June 2, 2010

National Running DayFrom the National Running Day website:

National Running Day is a national initiative of the major organizations within the running industry to join forces in an unprecedented unified effort to nationally promote running as a healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise. The second annual National Running Day will be Wednesday, June 2.

From New York to San Diego, the day will celebrate the benefits of running as part of a healthy and active lifestyle aimed at combating some of today’s most pressing health issues.

You can participate in National Running Day anywhere—you don’t have to be in one of the cities hosting events to take part. At the least, all it takes is to wear your running shoes throughout the day, go for a run, and invite a friend to join you.

So, what do you think? Ready to get out and run?

There’s a “Participate” section on the website where you can search your state for local National Running Day events.  Strangely, there’s only one listed for Georgia, in Augusta, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in your own way.  Get some friends together at the park and go for a jog, if not today, then over the weekend.  Celebrate your health and hit the ground running!
