Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: How will you celebrate Global Running Day?. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
A little background on the day – Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages people of all ages and abilities to get moving. It is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. Participants of all ages and abilities pledge to take part in some type of running activity by submitting their names through the Global Running Day website. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. During the past two years, many people have turned to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing.
How am I celebrating? Well I just realized I’m actually signed up for an OTF class that morning, so I’ll run there and at home to equal my 5K for the day. I signed up for NYRR Virtual Global Running Day 5K so I still plan on getting in 3.1 miles that day, although I probably won’t be able to submit my run and time on the website since I’m splitting up the miles.
