Happy Tuesday! I’m excited for this post because tomorrow is Global Running Day!
What is Global Running Day? According to their website, “Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.”
This week’s Tuesday Topic: How will you celebrate Global Running Day? You can write about this topic, or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
If you’re still looking for ideas, there are so many ways to get involved in this holiday:
Run a Virtual Race
Sign up for the free NYRR Virtual Global Running Day 1 mile race to join the worldwide celebration of running from anywhere in the world! Run or walk your virtual race, powered by Strava, anytime between June 1-9. You can register for this race here.
Sign up for a race
What better way to celebrate than to sign up for a race? Rock n Roll Marathon Series is hosting their annual Global Running Day sale. This is the one day of the year where you can get heavily discounted prices on race registrations. My mom and I are considering signing up for either RnR Arizona or RnR New Orleans (depending on the prices) for 2020. You can visit their website on June 5 for all the details, or you can go there now to sign up to be notified when the sale begins.
Set a Goal
Thinking about setting a PR this year? Want to run a race in a new state? Or maybe you want to run your first half marathon or marathon? Global Running Day is a great day to take that first step and put that goal into action.
