I wanted to let you know about a very well kept secret. A special day for runners all over the United States. Not many know about this special holiday created just for runners like you and me. Why not celebrate our sport? There is basically a holiday for everything else, so why not a holiday for running? If we have a special day set aside to celebrate yogurt, or square dancing or lady bugs, all the more power to running enthusiasts to mark a special day.
National Running Day is typically the first Wednesday of the month of June every year. Well, this special day will be upon us very soon. Just two weeks from today. Mark your calendars! Set an appointment for yourself or a reminder on your phone, for when June 4th arrives, you will not want to miss the festivities.
Group runs, charity runs, donating miles across America to shed more light upon the sport that we love. Get more involved, help spread the word. Take part in a run, and show how popular our sport is. Get others involved. Inspire others through your own efforts. There will be a lot of runners out there on June 4th, running just because. Running to stay healthy, get fitter, training for that next race. It will be a big day.
National Running Day is also a day to get great discounts on upcoming races. Look for them. Visit race websites that day. Bookmark race websites, and keep your eyes on emails, Twitter and Facebook that day. Many, many races will offer special race discounts that day. I scored a few unbeatable 50% off discounts on marathons last year on National Running Day. It will be worth it, promise! I paid $40 each, and registered for two marathons last year on our special holiday. I am ready to spend some time on my computer June 4th, but will save some time that day to get a nice run in as well.
Happy National Running Day, in advance! Enjoy our holiday!
