Tomorrow, June 1, is National Running Day. And since I like to think of myself as an ambassador of running (casual, non-pro level, conversational pace, out here for the smiles and the miles), I would like to officially welcome you to participate.
All you have to do is run. Seriously, it's that easy.
Sure you could sign up for a fancy event (get $26 off a Rock ‘n' Roll Marathon; $13 off a Rock ‘n' Roll Half Marathon; $10 off a Rock ‘n' Roll 10k; $5 off a Rock ‘n' Roll 5k; $20 off a Muddy Buddy; and $20 off a TriRock event if you register for one on June 1, 2011), but if that seems too complicated to you, just run down your driveway, to the next mailbox, or to the end of the block.
I'll be driving from NYC to VA for my baby sister's wedding, so I won't be anywhere near my favorite place to run—Central Park. Still, I'm planning to stop in every rest area and jog a lap around the parking lot. Yes, it's going to make my travel time a heck of a lot longer, but I'll do anything to be able to take part in this glorious holiday!
Tell me, how will you be celebrating National Running Day?
