Global Running Day

Happy Global Running Day!

Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. Participation is easy—just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 7, 2017. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids. The key is to share your passion for the sport and inspire others to get moving.

Since Global Running Day conveniently fell on a day I have a run in my training plan (hill reps!) I pledged to run 4 miles to help reach my marathon goal. I would have loved to follow that up with a heartfelt post about what running means to me or pen an ode to my trainers, but the exam marking beckons and sadly there’s no time to devote myself to anything else. Instead, I thought I would share a couple of articles I came across today that celebrate the day. Enjoy!

Running is a big part of my life – I’d go so far as to say it changed my life – and I hope Global Running Day helps others to find their passion for running and begin their journey.

Did you pledge to run for Global Running Day?
