National Running Day

5 Jun

Today is the one “official” day set aside to celebrate running – but most runners celebrate every time they hit the road! But there’s one day that EVERYONE can celebrate running. In fact, today would be a great day for someone who wants to run to start. It’s also a great day to keep the streak going – some of us may have been slacking on that but will definitely be catching up this weekend 😉

We all got started for a different reason and we all keep going for a different reason. Honestly, I keep trying because I know that I have rarely “given it my all” out there and each day I vow to do better. So I run. And, I really really love my couch. And I really really love the snacks that sometimes show up at my couch. However, my diabetic body doesn’t appreciate either of those things as much as I do. So I run.

And I really really want to look like the top picture. And that takes work. So I run. Plus, I’ve met some really great people through running and that makes it easier to get out there!

I do what I can to make it fun. The best way to make it fun is to runDisney. I highly recommend running at least one Disney run event in your running career (though, to be honest, they’re like Lay’s® chips – you can’t run just one!) Plus – there is some AMAZING bling out there – if you’re into that sort of thing!

Today, to help you get started there are LOTS of deals out there on the interwebs –

$20 off of race entry at Rock-n-Roll – Rock-n-Roll Fun events, lots of music and some great locations. I know I’m going to register for Providence today, who’s joining me?!

10% off at any Diva race – Run Like a Diva Ladies focused, tiaras, boas and a champagne finish!

Free Shipping at National Running Center – National Running Center

I’m sure there are many more deals to be found today if you search!! Plus your area running stores will probably have groups out on the road tonight – check them out!!

    Haha I love the part about the snacks and the couch. I feel the same way. Hey, how did those chips get on the coffee table? Hm… 🙂

    And I guess today is the day to decide if I’m running RnR Philly! Its cheaper today than the initial registration price!

    Great post! I love reading all of today’s “why I run” entries. It’s so awesome to see why everyone started. And, I totally agree that you can’t do just one runDisney race!
