Lace up those sneakers because today is National Running Day!
From the National Running Day website, this day is dedicated to everything about running:
“A day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. Wherever we are and whomever we’re with, we run—fast or slow, alone or with others, all over town or just around the block. It is a coast-to-coast celebration of a sport and activity that’s simple, inexpensive, and fun. It’s the perfect way for longtime runners to reaffirm their love of running and for beginners to kick off a lifetime and life-changing commitment.”
We encourage everyone on the Ask, Listen, Learn team to get out and RUN today! It doesn’t matter how far or fast or where you are. You could go for a run at lunch with your coworkers, after school with your kids, or head off on the trail for 30 mins of alone time after dinner. It’s also easy to search for National Running Day events in your area if you want celebrate running with a new group of pals.
It’s no secret running is one of the best exercises for your mind and body- so why not take this holiday to make a commitment to incorporate running into your weekly routine?
While you’re out there, we suggest you tweet or instagram with the hashtag #IMARUNNER and Timex will donate $5 to the One Fund Boston to help victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.
